Nerves become “trapped” when the underlying muscle contracts and squeezes it, as in the case of the sciatic nerve. Tightness can be caused by chronic muscle spasms, which can be caused by imbalances in the spine and pelvis, as well as degenerating discs. Since it is exacerbated by sitting on a wallet for long periods of time, it is generally referred to as “wallet sciatica.” Checkout this website for more info.
Identifying the Source of Sciatica
It’s important to figure out what’s causing your sciatica symptoms before you start treatment. Chiropractors will examine the whole back, hips, and leg that is symptomatic in order to decide whether the discomfort is induced by the sciatic nerve and why it is being caused. Not only will the right symptoms be treated, but further harm from incorrect care will be avoided.
Treatment depends on what’s causing the sciatic symptoms, and since the pain and inflammation originate in various areas of the body, chiropractors treat each diagnosis differently. Joint range of motion, possible disc damage, muscle spasm, and ligament injury can all be assessed during the first visit to a chiropractor. Your overall stance and walk will be assessed as well. Both of these tests will reveal the source of your discomfort.
Is chiropractic care the answer to your sciatica problems? It’s definitely not the answer, but it’s an important part of the puzzle. Are there any dangers? There are, without a doubt, risks associated with any form of medical care. Spinal injections are not without risk, both in terms of the operation and the medication’s side effects. Finally, you must educate yourself about your choices, weigh the risks, choose qualified practitioners, and determine which type of care you want.
Chiropractic treatment, in my view, can never be considered a complete cure since the modifications and other treatments only relieve the discomfort and pressure, not eliminate the source of the sciatica pain. Chiropractics must be part of a recovery plan that includes the strengthening and regeneration of muscle strength and structure, as any serious chiropractor can point out, in order to get the body to the point where it can properly care for your spine through healthy muscle tissue, ligaments, and tendons.
