CAN A CHIROPRACTOR HELP WITH SCIATICA PAIN?
It is important to understand that sciatica is a nerve issue. All of the nerves in the human body originate from the spinal column. The sciatic nerve is no different. So even though you may be suffering with leg, hip or even calf pain – chances are good that the nerve is actually compressed somewhere in the spinal column. As we already know from reading above, chiropractic can be great at relieving pressure on the spinal nerves. If you have sciatica, and have had the condition for a while, chances are you will require several adjustments. The reason for this is because it takes some time for your muscles to readjust to supporting the spinal column in the way they were designed. Once properly aligned and the muscles readjust, maintaining alignment through chiropractic adjustments is always a good idea.
