Chiropractic Care for Sciatica Treatment
Pain from sciatica can be long-lasting and excruciating. Some people who experience sciatica opt for relief through over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Although medication might bring temporary relief, the pain will reappear once it wears off.
If you want to experience long-term relief from sciatica, consider chiropractic care. Chiropractic is a non-invasive and extremely effective type of sciatica treatment that battles the root of your pain to get rid of it once and for all.

What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is the resulting pain when there is pressure on your sciatic nerve. Your sciatic nerve, which begins in your spine and runs down your leg, is in charge of many of the sensory and motor functions of your lower body. Often, it experiences pressure from bulging or herniated discs. This results in sharp pangs of excruciating pain that are normally felt down one leg and in the lower back.
Other symptoms of sciatica might be pain in the hip or buttocks, as well as a tingling feeling in the leg. Visit us at Gulf Coast Injury Center, where we can help you determine through comprehensive testing whether your back and hip pain are stemming from sciatica.
How Can Chiropractic Alleviate Sciatica Pain?
Chiropractors are trained in resolving issues with the nervous system and those of a musculoskeletal nature. That means sciatica treatment is right in their wheelhouse. Chiropractic offers a variety of medication-free treatment options for sciatica, including spinal adjustments that should resolve any bulging or herniated discs putting pressure on the sciatic nerve.
This kind of treatment, which eliminates the cause of the pain instead of the pain itself, is most effective. This way, not only does the pain go away; it stays away. Other chiropractic sciatica treatment options are deep-tissue massage therapy and heat and ice therapy.
