Calming Your Nerves Naturally

If you have been told you need surgery, strong pain medications, or other invasive procedures for your sciatica, you should try chiropractic care first. Simmons Specific Chiropractic in Midland can help reduce your sciatic nerve pain by locating the source of your injury and devising a non-invasive, drug-free care plan to heal those injuries.

 

What Are the Causes of Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Sciatic nerve pain can be caused by a variety of illnesses and injuries. The most common cause of lower back and leg pain is a herniated disc. Herniated discs occur when the inner material of the disc breaks through the tougher, outer layer and puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica can also be caused by degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and spondylolisthesis.

What Are the Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Sciatic nerve pain causes radiating pain in the lower back as well as pain in the buttocks and leg pain. Individuals with sciatic nerve pain often have trouble sitting for long periods of time and may have difficulty walking. Other symptoms include:

  • Buttock and Leg Pain
  • Difficulty Walking
  • Increased Pain While Sitting
  • Lower Back Pain
How Do You Treat Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Sciatic nerve pain treatment typically starts with chiropractic adjustments, which are designed to properly position your vertebrae so that they are not compressing your sciatic nerve. Adjustments are beneficial for reducing sciatic nerve pain that is caused by spinal stenosis in the lower back, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease and spondylolisthesis.

Corrective Exercises

Certain exercises have been proven to strengthen your back and reduce the pressure on your sciatic nerve. We may recommend a range of exercises and stretches as well as low impact aerobic exercises.

Mechanical Contraction

Mechanical contraction compliments chiropractic adjustments and corrective exercises by improving the effectiveness of the adjustment and helping your muscles release lactic acid after a workout. It also helps improve flexibility and can help relax tight, sore spots in the muscles to reduce your pain.
