Chiropractic Care For Sciatica
Relief In Cape Coral
Affecting up to 40% of the population, sciatica pain impacts many individuals. The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in the body. It runs through your hips, buttocks, and legs, branching out just below the knees into other nerves, which continue down your leg into your feet and toes. Sciatica pain is caused when a nerve in the lower back is pinched or compressed, leading to irritation and inflammation.
The pain from sciatica may range from mild to severe, and it can occur anywhere along the pathway of the sciatic nerve. Pressure from a bulging disc, herniated disc, or spinal stenosis (the narrowing of the space within the spine where nerves travel) may cause lower back pain, hip pain, and leg pain. It may also cause weakness, numbness, and tingling sensations in your leg, toes, and foot on the affected side. Most people describe the pain as sharp, shooting, burning, or stabbing.
Although the pain may seem to go away on its own within a few weeks, the underlying problem still remains and is evident when the pain returns. Dr. Omar Clark is an upper cervical chiropractor in Cape Coral, FL who has the experience and knowledge to treat your sciatica pain naturally and effectively.
Techniques for Managing Sciatica Pain
With sciatica pain often being quite intense, the first reaction may be to reach for pain medication for a quick fix. Muscle relaxers, anti-inflammatory medications, or even strong pain killers are often prescribed. These, however, are nothing more than temporary solutions with unwanted side effects. Some people may even consider an invasive spinal surgery which isn't 100% guaranteed to work, and it comes with the concerns of recovery time and risks involved.
Before considering these methods, know that there is a non-invasive, effective method for relieving your painful sciatica symptoms. Dr. Omar Clark with Experience Health & Wellness Center is an expert in spinal health and specializes in upper cervical chiropractic care. He gently adjusts the upper spine, which allows the central nervous system to communicate properly with the rest of your body.
Since upper cervical chiropractic adjustments can impact the alignment of all the other vertebrae of the spine, this allows your central nervous system to function properly. The overall function of your entire body improves, which in turn relieves the sciatica pain in a natural and safe way. When you receive upper cervical chiropractic care with Dr. Omar Clark, your whole body is able to function more effectively and nerve function is restored, reducing muscle tightness, inflammation, and pain. Addressing the root cause of the pain and removing misalignments throughout your spine ensures a lasting solution to your sciatica pain!
