Sciatica Pain in Huntersville NC

If you’ve got sciata, you’ve got pain on your mind. Sharp, relentless pain that shoots from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down one leg. As you probably already guessed from the name, this pain is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, and it’s pretty common, especially for people who have poor posture, are overweight and/or pregnant, or who have experienced trauma or injury of one sort or another.

In most cases, sciata comes and goes, aggravated one day and milder the next. In some cases, sciata resolves itself. In extreme cases, corticosteroid injections or even surgery is required. However, most cases of sciata respond well to natural treatments like chiropractic adjustments.

Sciata Pain Relief Tips

Many people find partial relief simply from taking a day off their feet. However, prolonged inactivity will actually result in the pain recurring and sometimes even prolong pain and delay healing.

Follow these tips for sciata pain relief:

  • Place an ice pack on the most sensitive area for up to 20 minutes multiple times a day
  • After the first couple days, alternate a heating pad and cold packs.
  • Hold gentle stretches for 30 seconds at a time, stretching the buttocks and hamstrings
  • Use over-the-counter pain relievers in moderation
  • Seek out chiropractic adjustments to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and acupuncture for natural pain relief

Why Chiropractic Care Works for Sciata

Sciata is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, and chiropractic adjustments can relieve this pressure. No pressure, no pain!

Clinical trial results published in the European journal Spine concluded that chiropractic adjustments delivered a 72 percent success rate in treating sciata. In comparison, physical therapy alone delivered a 20 percent success rate and corticosteroid injections resulted in a 50 percent success rate.
