Sciatica Treatments at Hoover Chiropractic
Sciatica is usually diagnosed by having lower back and leg pain simultaneously. Thankfully, our chiropractor at Hoover Chiropractic in Hoover, AL can diagnose the cause of your sciatic nerve pain and recommend a treatment program to heal the underlying cause while naturally reducing your symptoms.
Causes of Sciatic Nerve Pain
Being diagnosed with sciatica means that you have a compression, irritation or inflammation of your sciatic nerve which starts in the lower back, travels downward where it branches in the buttocks and continues down both legs. The most common cause of sciatic nerve pain is one or more herniated discs where the material of the disk is pressing on the sciatic nerve. Other causes include degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, Piriformis syndrome and problems with the sacroiliac joint.
Chiropractic Treatments with our Chiropractor in Hoover
Chiropractic treatments for sciatica are designed to reduce your symptoms and heal the underlying injury. Our chiropractor in Hoover will start your treatment plan by first performing an in-depth examination that may include digital images. Once the type and extent of your injury are known, our chiropractor may recommend one or several treatment options, including chiropractic adjustments, nutritional counseling, and corrective exercises.
Chiropractic adjustments help aligns the vertebrae while reducing localized inflammation. This can help with sciatica that is caused by herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
Our nutritional counseling services are designed to ensure that you eat the right amount of micro and macro-nutrients so that your body has the fuel it needs to heal your injuries. Eating right may also help you lose a few pounds and improve your overall health.
Corrective exercises can help strengthen weak core muscles and improve flexibility, which helps support your spine. We can even recommend specific exercises and stretches to help with your sciatic nerve pain.
