What is Sciatica?

Many people are surprised to learn that sciatica isn't a specific condition, but a syndrome of symptoms occurring when your sciatic nerves become compressed and irritated. This can happen because of an injured muscle, a misaligned joint, a disc herniation or bulge, or any other condition which could cause narrowing of the space around the exit location of the sciatic nerve (e.g., spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, bony spur, bone tumor). 

When a nerve is injured, symptoms can show up in the area of the body innervated by that nerve. With sciatica, this can lead to symptoms like leg numbness, weakness, and pain that is sharp, stabbing, radiating, or burning (especially in the buttocks and back of the leg). People who stand or sit a lot as well as people who smoke, are overweight, or have a physically demanding job may be more at risk. 

How Our Naperville Chiropractor Treats & Manages Sciatica

Our Naperville chiropractor performs a thorough postural screen and examination and conducts a detailed patient interview to help get a grasp on what's causing your sciatica pain. He can then identify and address hidden factors (such as tight muscles or minor joint misalignments) as well as relieve symptoms, plus teach you ways to prevent your sciatic nerve pain from returning. 

Our sciatica services include:

  • Chiropractic adjustments - With tools, tables, or simply his own hands, our doctor of chiropractic can relieve pressure on sciatic nerve roots and restore normal mobility and alignment of the entire spine
  • Acupuncture and Electroacupuncture - By stimulating specific trigger points or nerve fibers within your skin, our acupuncture and Electroacupuncture (TENS) services can trigger an increase in free-floating pain-relieving hormones and neurotransmitters, plus improve the flow of energy and circulation within your body
  • Lifestyle/nutritional counseling and corrective exercises - help you heal from inside out by supporting your spinal health with strong, flexible, and balanced muscles, clean and nutrient-dense food and supplements, and appropriate strategies for work, activity, stress relief, sleep, etc.
