SCIATIC TREATMENT IN COLORADO SPRINGS

Sciatic neuralgia or commonly called sciatica can cause symptoms of lower back pain, pain down the back of the leg, and into the foot. Severe cases can also have numbness, tingling, or even muscular weakness. It can make prolonged standing or sitting extremely difficult. Prolonged stationary positioning can cause worsening symptoms. Untreated even with remission of symptoms sciatic pain will generally grow worse and can even cause permanent damage.

Chiropractors at our Colorado Springs clinic have extensive training to diagnose and treat sciatica. Long-term use of pain relievers or muscle relaxers can have many negative side effects. Chiropractic care relieves pain naturally.

Chiropractic care specifically re-aligns the spine to allow proper motion in the spinal joints, allowing stress to distribute evenly throughout the spine and helping to maintain proper disc and joint health.


HOW DO YOU DEVELOP SCIATICA?

The Sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body originating from the L4 to S3 spinal nerves. It contains a combination of both motor and sensory components. Sciatic nerve pain happens when unnatural pressure causes irritation of the nerve. This is most commonly caused by disc injuries or disc bulges. In this instance, the disc presses on the nerve root causing the issue. Damage to the spinal disc is generally a process that takes time and is accelerated by poor posture, repetitive movements, accidents, trauma. Sciatica can also be present when misalignments in the spine also known as subluxations cause irritation of the nerve. Commonly patients describe benign movements which set it off such as sneezing, bending over to tie shoes or pregnancy. In all these cases, the reality is that underlying structural weakness has been present for a long period of time. Even if symptoms resolve on their own treatment or an evaluation of spinal structure and function is crucial to prevent future occurrences or permanent damage.


SCIATICA SYMPTOMS IN PREGNANCY

Many expecting mothers experience sciatica for the first time and mothers who have previously struggled with sciatic symptoms often see an exacerbation of symptoms. A hormone called relaxin peaks around 14-16 weeks in pregnancy and causes the pelvic ligaments to relax which can cause pain in the sacroiliac joint (SI joint) or cause irritation of the sciatic nerve. A chiropractor trained in Webster’s technique can gently realign the sacrum restoring balance to the pelvis often helping with these symptoms.

The techniques in our state-of-the-art clinic allow for specific and gentle re-alignment of the spine without twisting, cracking, or popping. Allowing you to be pain-free naturally.

How quickly patients experience relief depends on the condition of the joints and discs. In most cases the longer the spinal dysfunction has been present the longer it takes to heal. It can take years or even decades to cause joint or disc damage and the good news is that chiropractic care typically fixes the issue in a shorter time than it took for the body to develop the problem.
