Sciatica can be an extremely debilitating condition that has a huge impact on your mobility, functionality, and overall quality of life. With our professional chiropractic treatments at Summerside & South Centre Chiropractic Clinics in Edmonton, AB, you can discover lasting relief from your sciatica pain. 

What is sciatica?

Sciatica is defined as a shooting pain that radiates down the backs of the legs. It is named after the sciatic nerve, which reaches from the SI joint and down your hamstring on both legs. The pain can be sharp, dull, stabbing, or throbbing. It usually only affects one side of the body, but can occur in both legs depending on the severity of the patient’s condition. In addition to this discomfort, symptoms of sciatica can also include tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness. 

What are the causes of sciatica? 

Sciatica can have many causes, but the most common sources are herniated discs and pinched nerves. Both of these conditions are characterized by an excess of pressure on nerves. This force causes pain to shoot down the backs of the legs. Sciatica can also be incited by SI joint dysfunction, lumbar degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, and inflammation of the pelvic muscles. Your doctor can assist you in determining the source of your sciatica if you don’t have an official diagnosis. 

How can chiropractic help my sciatica pain?

Chiropractic is a completely drug-free, natural remedy for healing sciatica pain. Many causes of sciatica have a spinal, habitual, or muscular component that your chiropractor at South Centre Chiropractic Clinic has been specifically trained to diagnose and treat. Using a series of gentle adjustments, your chiropractor will naturally correct spinal misalignments that may be causing you discomfort. 

What are the benefits of chiropractic care?

Standard remedies for sciatica pain often consist of prescription medications and potentially invasive surgeries. Over-the-counter pain relievers can lead to stomach damage and other harmful side effects if used too often, while surgeries often come with a fair amount of risk and lengthy recovery periods. Chiropractic care involves no drugs, and no post-session downtime.
