Sciatica can occur at many stages in life. In the younger population, sciatica is usually caused by a bulging disc, where as in middle-age and older people, sciatica is often caused by a combination of one (or more) bulging discs and advancing degenerative changes in your spine.
At Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic, we can provide highly effective sciatica treatments in Doncaster. Our chiropractors possess the skills and expertise needed to evaluate and treat this painful condition effectively. Before treating sciatica, your chiropractor will take a detailed history and perform a thorough examination. This will help them to decide which nerve root/nerve roots have been compromised.
Identifying the exact course of sciatica is usually relatively easy for a qualified chiropractor. Each nerve root exiting the lumbar spine supply represents a specific area in your leg, and from the description of your leg pain, the chiropractor can identify which nerve root is been trapped, and which disc is damaged.View our company video here
Sciatica pain treatments involve the use of carefully directed and controlled pressure to the involved spinal joint. This removes the pressure on the trapped spinal nerves and frees the associated spinal joints. This will allow the nerve to eventually become un-trapped. With regular sessions, usually over a period of 4 to 6 weeks, your chiropractor will help the spine restore normal function. Treatment will also decrease inflammation of the spinal joints and reduce bruising of the involved nerve root.
As part of your initial assessment, your chiropractor will also identify any lifestyle issues that may have caused your sciatica. For example, faulty ergonomics at work or unsuitable exercise regimes could be to blame. Once the leg pain has subsided, your chiropractor will advise you on how to prevent your symptoms from coming back. This may also include supportive chiropractic care.
Sciatica can be a debilitating condition in the shorter or longer term, and if left untreated it will inevitably require surgery at some stage. Whilst surgery will usually take away your sciatica symptoms, it will leave you with a weakened spine and may force you to change your lifestyle.
If treated early, sciatica usually responds very well to chiropractic care. At Thorne Road Chiropractic Clinic, we see many individuals making a full recovery. Our clients often going on to live active and healthy lives, without the need for surgery. So if you are suffering from pain and need sciatica treatments in Doncaster give us a call today.
