Dr. Mills and Dr. Brown use natural chiropractic care to heal sciatica. After a complete evaluation of your condition and symptoms, we design a personalized care plan to help you reach your goals. We want to speak with you if you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica such as:
Sciatica is caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is located in your lower back and sends nerve signals through your hips and down your legs. If the nerve is compromised by either a vertebrae or a disc, you experience pain and limited range of motion. To remove the pressure from the sciatic nerve, our Kittanning chiropractor may use a variety of techniques including:
Chiropractic Adjustments- gentle adjustments to your vertebrae slide the bone off the nerve and free the signal. Adjustments also allow space for a herniated disc to repair.
Kinesio Taping- to support your lower back muscles as your body recovers from sciatica, our chiropractors may use a flexible tape to support your movements. The tape also improves circulation to the area which promotes healing.
Cold Laser Therapy- Laser therapy also improves healing at the cellular level. If your muscles are too tight or too loose, laser therapy helps them repair.
Corrective Exercises- we show you ways to strengthen and stretch your lower back to restore movement and reduce inflammation.
Nutritional Counseling- our holistic approach also includes a look at your nutritional intake to ensure you are bringing in essential nutrients for healing and repair.
Lifestyle changes- if your current habits are worsening sciatica, we show you how to eliminate stress on the sciatic nerve with proper posture.
For sciatica treatment, we encourage you to contact Mills Chiropractic Center. Our Kittanning chiropractors listen to your symptoms and evaluate your spine to determine if you are suffering from sciatica. Then, we put together a healing plan to restore you to your active lifestyle.
Sciatica may come on suddenly or appear gradually, but if you feel any sciatica symptoms, please contact us today at 724-548-7999 for a free consultation. We look forward to meeting with you!
