Sciatica nerve conditions cause patients to experience numbness, tingling, and sharp, pulsating pain that travels down the back of their legs.
Most patients sustain this condition as a result of their sciatic nerves becoming irritated or affected by some complication within the spine. Most primary physicians prescribe anti-inflammatory medication to address the symptoms associated with sciatica nerve pain. Although this approach does provide pain relief, it does not serve as a permanent solution.
One of the most useful solutions for sciatica nerve pain is Chiropractic Treatment. Our Jonesboro Chiropractors are experienced at helping patients overcome this condition and return to their routines as soon as possible. Although each patient’s condition requires its personalized treatment plan, most cases of sciatica nerve pain can be treated using Chiropractic Adjustments, which help realign particular parts of the spine.
Through a combination of gentle and controlled thrusts, our Jonesboro Chiropractors can stimulate your body’s natural ability to heal itself by improving your circulatory system’s performance. Healthy circulation allows your body to transfer oxygen and blood to your irritated nerves, which helps reduce inflammation and other sources of sciatica pain.
Applying a warm cloth or heating pad to the affected area of your body for 15 minutes before adjusting to an ice pack helps reduce tension and irritation. Your Chiropractor may use this particular technique during your office session and is safe for you to perform on your own.
Patients who have conditions caused by spinal compression can learn a variety of stretches and exercises that help
If your sciatica nerve pain is caused by spinal compression, you may want to try several stretching exercises to help break up the tension surrounding your sciatic nerves. During your visit at AICA Jonesboro’s Chiropractic Clinic, your Chiropractor will show you some exercises and activities you can perform at home to compliment recovery.
Depending on your condition, your Jonesboro Chiropractor may recommend deep tissue massage. This particular kind of treatment helps alleviate pain, improves circulation, and restores mobility to the affected area of your body. AICA Jonesboro offers a team of experienced massage therapists at our clinic – allowing you to receive comprehensive treatment under one roof.
