What is Sciatica and What Are the Symptoms?

Sciatica describes the pain often felt when the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the body, becomes damaged or injured. Sciatica can occur after an accident or other injury to the spine. When this nerve suffers damage, it creates symptoms such as:

  • Radiating pain that runs from the lower back into the hips and down one or both legs
  • Sharp pain that can come and go
  • Limited mobility and difficulty sleeping
  • Tingling sensation in the legs
  • Chronic pain and soreness in the lower back and hips

Chiropractic Therapy for Sciatica for the West Babylon, Babylon, Long Island, West Islip, Lindenhurst, and Copiague Communities

A number of chiropractic treatments can offer therapy for pain and mobility concerns brought on by sciatica. Our chiropractor offers a wide range of options that can help improve your quality of life including the following:

Traditional Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic care involves the use of pressure and specific movements to properly align the spinal column. This process allows for the bones of the spine to align and reduces compression on nerves and discs.

Cold Laser Therapy: This procedure uses a low light laser to reduce the amount of nerve pain present. This is an outstanding treatment for sciatica because it allows for specific treatment to the nerve.

Mechanical Traction: Using our mechanical tool, we can alleviate much of the discomfort that comes from sciatica. Cold and heat applications, for example, can help treat swelling or localized pain.

Cryotherapy: Cold therapy is another option that offers sciatica suffers a significant amount of improvement through localized treatment. It can help with swelling and inflammation caused by sciatica.

Arthostim Joint Mobilization: This type of chiropractic care involves the application of a device that interacts with the nervous system to create controlled thrusts to reduce specific point pain.

VibraPercussor Myofascial Release Technique: With a specific focus on muscle tension, this type of treatment involves the use of a device that creates impulses to improve circulatory system and lymphatic system-related pain.

Trigger Point Therapy: For sciatica, the pain can be very specific. This treatment promotes healing by focusing on a specific spot causing pain. These trigger points of pain can often be causing your limited mobility.

Nutritional Advice: Good nutrition can significantly improve your pain and healing. Our goal is to provide long-term wellness with a focus on holistic treatment including nutritional support.

Custom-Fit Orthotics: In some cases, sciatica can cause discomfort in the way you walk and how your body moves. Our custom orthotics can help to reduce pain in your lower back, feet and legs.

Motorized Flexion Distraction for Disc Problems: To encourage your body to heal, we may recommend this treatment. It can help address lumbar spinal stenosis that could cause or worsen sciatica.
