Sciatica Causes and Treatment Options with Our Chiropractor in Everett

Sciatica refers to the symptoms which an individual experiences. It does not describe the injury, because Sciatica can be caused by a variety of medical conditions and injuries, including pinched and herniated discs, repetitive motion injuries to the back and spine, spinal stenosis in the lower back, pregnancy, spondylolisthesis and degenerative disc disease.

The pain can be exasperated by several different physiological and environmental factors, including being overweight, sleeping on an excessively soft mattress and wearing tight jeans or high heels. Our chiropractor in Everett can help you reduce your sciatic pain and facilitate the healing of the underlying injury.

Treatment options include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy and counselling on lifestyle adjustments and nutrition. When all of these treatments are combined, your back and leg pain is reduced, and your body begins healing itself.

Sciatica Pain Management

Sciatica is an extremely painful, debilitating condition that can impact your quality of life, and we understand that you want immediate pain management for your sciatica. That is why our first goal is to reduce your pain. We accomplish this by creating a customized treatment plan that is designed to reduce your pain.

Chiropractic adjustments will restore the proper alignment of your spine, which reduces the pressure on your sciatic nerve. Once the pressure is reduced, inflammation and irritation of the nerve will lessen.

Massage therapy helps relax the muscles in your back and increases circulation throughout your body. This reduces pain and helps your body heal itself.

Lifestyle adjustments and nutrition counselling can further reduce your pain and speed your healing, because our chiropractor will evaluate your current lifestyle and make recommendations that will improve your overall health. These adjustments could include getting more exercise and including certain foods and supplements into your diet.
