Everett Sciatica Pain Is Relieved With Chiropractic Care Techniques

Sciatica is the pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve. Your sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It runs from your low back, through the hip area and down each leg. This nerve branches out into smaller nerves down the legs in your thighs and feet. It controls many of the muscles in your lower legs. With sciatica you typically experience lower back pain and leg pain. Your pain spreads down the lower lumbar region of the back causing numbness and tingling in the affected leg.

Some of the most common causes of sciatica or nerve compression can be a misaligned vertebrae and/or a herniated or bulging disc. Another cause is piriformis syndrome. Your piriformis muscle lies directly over the sciatic nerve. Pressure is put directly on the sciatic nerve when the muscle becomes tight or goes into spasms.

Sciatica Treated with Adjustments and Massage Therapy

Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for sciatica. Our Everett chiropractors treat neck pain, back pain and headaches as well as other musculoskeletal pain. Often times, they are able to find the source of the nerve blockage and use manual chiropractic adjustments to correct your spinal misalignment. Sciatic pain can be relieved with corrective exercises such as a combination of stretches and massage therapy through deep tissue massage.

Our massage therapist will massage the piriformis muscle to relax it and prevent it from causing more sciatic nerve pain. Since pain medications mask the symptoms instead of allowing them to heal, chiropractic methods may be the better option. Spinal alignment has been known to improve and reduce pain in your sciatic nerve.

Our Everett chiropractors are concerned with improving your overall wellness. You will not only receive excellent chiropractic care at our clinic but also get lifestyle advice and nutritional counseling.
