Here at Body Works Health & Wellness, we offer sciatica treatments in Chicago West Loop that can help lower your sciatic nerve pain. In order to effectively treat lower back and leg pain that is caused by a compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, our chiropractor must first determine how the nerve is being compressed. This is accomplished through a physical evaluation and sometimes x-rays. Once our chiropractor understands the cause, he will recommend one or more treatments to help ease your pain.
Sciatica Treatments in Chicago West Loop
The treatment of sciatica usually starts with Chicago chiropractic adjustments. Misaligned vertebrae in the lower back along with inflammation around the joint can impinge the sciatic nerve. Correcting the misalignments via chiropractic adjustments can help remove the pressure and lower inflammation.
Services Offered at Body Works Health & Wellness
Massage Therapy– Massage therapy may also prove beneficial for sciatica sufferers. Tight muscles in the lower back can cause additional pain. Massage therapy helps relax tight muscles and promotes the release of lactic acid, which can make muscles feel stiff and sore after exercise or physical exertion.
Active Rehabilitation– Many individuals with sciatic nerve pain believe that rest and inactivity will help alleviate their symptoms. Unfortunately, resting the lower back muscles for longer than a day or two can result in muscle weakness and more back pain. Instead of resting your back, our Chicago chiropractor recommends performing targeted stretches and exercises in order to strengthen the lower back muscles and improve their flexibility.
Acupuncture– Acupuncture may also benefit individuals with sciatica. Acupuncture is the process of inserting long, thin needles into the skin at specific points in order to facilitate healing and lower back pain.
