Sciatica and Chiropractic Care

Sciatica, characterized by pain, numbness, tingling and or weakness traveling along the sciatic nerve, can be a debilitating condition affecting daily life. These symptoms occur when the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in your body, is compressed and irritated.


Research supports the efficacy of chiropractic care whose aim is to restore spinal function, reduce inflammation, and alleviate the pain and symptoms associated with sciatica. Studies indicate that spinal manipulation performed by chiropractors can lead to significant improvements in pain intensity and functional capacity for individuals suffering from sciatic nerve-related issues.

Through treatment and education focusing on lifestyle modifications, including posture, ergonomics, and exercises. Chiropractors will not only aim to alleviate current symptoms but also prevent future recurrences of sciatic pain.
