Sciatica Treatments

Sciatica is a common nerve condition that affects the sciatic nerve. It occurs when the nerve is compressed and inflamed, causing pain. At Langston Chiropractic, a chiropractic clinic based in Florence, AL, Dr. Jack Langston and Dr. Sherri Langston help people resolve sciatica pain by getting to the root of the issue.

What is sciatica?

Sciatica is a painful condition of the lower half of the body. It's caused by the compression of one of the sciatic nerves, which originate in the lower back and travel down the leg. This compression can be the result of several different causes, so it's important to consult with a doctor to determine the best course of treatment. Potential causes are inflammation, injury, and spinal misalignment. Common symptoms include pain, weakness, numbness, and tingling in the affected area. Sciatica is not the same for everyone and may be more severe in one person than in another. Pain may flare up when doing certain activities, such as standing, sitting, or walking.

How to Prevent Sciatica

There's no surefire way to prevent developing sciatica, but there are ways to lower your odds. The best way to prevent contracting any sort of illness is to take care of the body. A nutritious diet and regular exercise keep you strong and healthy. Posture, especially of the lower back, is important. Avoid slouching, and sleep with a pillow between your legs if you sleep on your side. Also, be sure to use the proper form when lifting and exercising to avoid injury.

How is sciatica treated?

There are several treatment options for sciatica. What is best for you may depend on the root cause of the ailment. Most commonly. We use chiropractic adjustments, with or without instruments, and therapeutic exercise to improve spinal posture and restore strength and function to the muscles. Some other options include electrical muscle stimulation (EMS), spinal decompression, acupuncture, and custom foot orthotics. During your initial consultation with Dr. S. Langston or Dr. J. Langston at Langston Chiropractic of Florence, AL, the doctor will review your situation to help determine the optimal course of treatment.
