Sciatica

An Overview of Sciatica from Molstad Chiropractic Clinic

One of the most common reasons why people come to see us is back pain. For those who might not know, back pain is one of the most common reasons why people seek disability in this country. Back pain can make it hard for someone to go to work, attend school, or even wake up in the morning. One of the most common causes of back pain is called sciatica. The team from Molstad Chiropractic Clinic is here to make sure that everyone in the Sioux City area has access to a trained healthcare professional such as Dr. Tom Molstad.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is the medical term used to describe inflammation that might have developed in and around the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerves are two of the thickest nerves in the body. These nerves run from the lower back on each side of the spine and pelvis traveling into the legs to the feet. Along the way, the nerve might become compressed. This compression can lead to inflammation which is going to manifest as back pain.

Some of the most common back pain symptoms that might accompany this disorder include shooting pains that travel down the legs. Someone might even experience numbness, tingling, and weakness of the legs. This can be debilitating and can make it hard for someone to walk.

How can a Chiropractor Treat Sciatica?

If someone is experiencing back pain, they might be told that they are going to have to take a bunch of pills to get better. They might even be thinking about signing up for surgery. Fortunately, there are other treatment options available. For someone who has been diagnosed with this disorder, a chiropractor can use manipulation and adjustment procedures to free the sciatic nerve. This can be used to relieve compression, stop inflammation, and help someone with back pain.

For this reason, a chiropractor can help someone recover without ever having to rely on pills or the operating room. They can achieve full recovery without having to expose themselves to the side effects or complications of these other treatment options. Chiropractic Care can be an effective treatment option for sciatica.
