Sciatica Treatments in San Antonio at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness

sciatica treatment

You don't remember straining your back or injuring your leg or foot -- and yet you're experiencing all kinds of odd issues with these areas, from inexplicable pain to dangerous balance problems when walking. This is the frustrating world of a nerve impingement syndrome known as sciatica. If you're tired of this problem coming and going for weeks at a time, you'll want to investigate the non-invasive sciatica treatments we offer here at Dr. Phillips Chiropractic Nutrition and Wellness.

Causes and Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica gets its name from the sciatic nerve, the longest and thickest nerve in the body. The sciatic nerve originates from multiple nerve roots in the lower spinal column, extending through the hip to relay signals to all the lesser nerves of one or the other of your legs. If the nerve roots that feed the sciatic nerve become pinched or trapped, they can't work properly. Nerve signals become garbled or never reach their destinations as a result. Sciatica causes include acute injury to the spine, bulging or herniated discs, bony overgrowth, or chronic spinal misalignment. Excess weight can aggravate the problem.

Sciatica can create a variety of annoying symptoms. The classic symptom is back down the back of the leg which becomes with extended sitting, coughing/sneezing, or any sudden jolts. Other symptoms include tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness anywhere in the extremity, as well as low back pain.

Non-Surgical Therapies to Relieve Nerve Impingement

Sciatica can tease you by going away after several weeks, only to make continual reappearances. The good news is that you can put a stop to this miserable syndrome by addressing its underlying biomechanical causes. Our San Antonio chiropractor can study your symptoms while conducting a detailed analysis of your musculoskeletal alignment, health, and balance. Once we've targeted the root of the problem, we can correct it through safe, non-surgical treatments such as:

  • Chiropractic adjustments to shift your joints or vertebrae back into their proper place, freeing sciatic nerve tissue
  • Lumbar decompression therapy to remove the compression caused by herniated or bulging discs
  • Physiotherapy to help you build a stronger, straighter, less sciatica-prone musculoskeletal system
  • Nutritional counseling to help you take that excess weight off
