Chiropractic and Sciatica

Can Chiropractic help with sciatica pain?

Research shows that chiropractic adjustments helped sciatica sufferers achieve relief from low back and leg pain symptoms. Sciatica represents an underlying health condition and manifests through pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling starting in the low back and radiating down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. People suffering from sciatica detail a feeling of pins and needles at varying degrees of pain and discomfort.

Most sciatica patients take potent prescription medications to deal with the painful symptoms. Oftentimes, medical doctors prescribe strong NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to help patients cope with the pain. However, mos medications used for sciatica come with a list of dangerous side effects.

Gentle, specifically administered adjustments allow the body to recover and manage the underlying conditions that lead to sciatica. Research published in the Spine Journal revealed a group of patients suffering from low back and sciatica achieved great results from chiropractic adjustments. This research monitored patients suffering from sciatica. Those found to have spinal misalignments received an adjustments. Other patients received a placebo adjustment. Patients who received chiropractic adjustments achieved a 55% improvement in symptoms involving shooting pain down the legs. Those receiving actual chiropractic care enjoyed significantly greater relief of pain, and consumed less drugs for the control of pain.
