Chiropractor for Sciatica

Chiropractor for Sciatica

Sciatica is a painful condition affecting the lower back that typically occurs on one side of the body. In serious cases, the pain can be debilitating for the sufferer, making it difficult to walk and carry out physical activities. The condition generally affects middle aged people and is more prevalent in men than women.

A number of treatments are available, including basic pain medication, but these are often temporary and fail to address the underlying cause of the condition. At Melbourne Chiro Clinic, our chiropractor for sciatica can provide more natural remedies for the condition. These include spinal adjustments, massage therapy and nerve compression treatment in Melbourne.

The Causes and Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica is a symptom rather than an illness in and of itself. There are a number of causes which may lead to sciatica, some of which include:

  • Spinal disc herniation, which is responsible for up to 90 percent of cases involving sciatica. This is where the lumbar or sacral nerve is ‘pressed’ or ‘pinched’. In these situations, treatment for sciatic nerve compression is required.
  • A degenerative disc, where a disc that acts as cushion between the vertebrae breaks down.
  • Pregnancy, where the weight of the foetus pressing on the sciatic nerve can cause pain and discomfort of varying severity. This can occur while sitting or during leg spasms.

Depending on the underlying cause, the symptoms of sciatica can range from mild to severe. They may include lower back pain, hip pain, burning sensations down the leg, and numbness in the leg. A chiropractor for sciatica nerve pain may be able to reduce these symptoms.
