Sciatica pain is one of the most crippling, debilitating forms of pain that affects us in modern day society. This agonizing, shooting pain is caused by the compression or irritation of one or more of the five nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve. The pain originating from the sciatic nerve can be felt all along the back of the leg, making it difficult for people to move around or perform physical tasks. If you’ve ever lost your footing or had a leg “go out” under you as a result of sciatic pain, you’re not alone! In fact, you’re one of millions of Americans who experience this pain daily.
While there are numerous treatment options for sciatica pain relief, none of them treat the issue at the root cause like Chiropractic BioPhysics®. Here’s how Chiropractic BioPhysics® can help relieve severe sciatica pain!
What causes sciatic pain?
The root cause of sciatica pain is often due to a herniated disc. A herniated disc is a condition where the disc that sits between two vertebrae in the spinal column dislodges, pushing into the spinal canal. This protrusion or displacement can put pressure on the sciatic nerve, causing severe pain. The pain of sciatica usually begins in the lower back and radiates through the buttocks and down the back of one leg. However, with the right treatment, sciatic pain can be managed or resolved completely.
Apart from herniated discs, several other conditions can contribute to sciatica pain. These include lumbar spinal stenosis which is a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, spondylolisthesis wherein one vertebra slips forward over another one, and, least commonly, spinal tumors. Pregnancy can also cause sciatic pain as additional weight and changes to the pelvis can place extra stress on the lower back and sciatic nerve. Lifestyle factors such as obesity, lack of regular physical activity, prolonged sitting, and wearing high heels can exacerbate sciatic pain. It should be noted that any condition causing irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve can lead to the painful symptoms of sciatica.
Chiropractic Care for Sciatica in Newport Beach, CA
At CorePosture Chiropractic in Newport Beach, CA, Dr. Tyler Meier and his team use Chiropractic BioPhysics® to treat sciatica pain effectively. Research shows that Chiropractic BioPhysics® is an effective treatment in reducing pain, restoring mobility, and improving overall health. The treatment is based on the principle of spinal realignment, which involves correcting spinal misalignment, thus, alleviating the pressure on the nerves.
A core element of Chiropractic BioPhysics® is the use of carefully calculated mirror-image™ adjustments to correct abnormal spinal curvatures. These adjustments restore the spinal alignment, reduce inflammation, and create space for the herniated disc, thus, eliminating the pressure on the sciatic nerve. In combination with spinal adjustments, Chiropractic BioPhysics® treatment includes therapeutic exercises, orthotic device recommendations, and may include lifestyle modifications like posture changes and a tailored, rigorous treatment plan.
Customized Spinal Tractions – Chiropractic BioPhysics® & Sciatic Pain
Customized spinal tractions are another standout feature of Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP). Unlike generic traction devices, these setups are tailored to each patient’s specific spinal curvature, ensuring a more effective and targeted approach to treating sciatica pain. The purpose of each customized traction setup is to remodel the spine, gradually and gently creating space between the joints while gently guiding the entire spinal structure into alignment. The process is designed to reduce inflammation, improve posture, and relieve nerve pressure – the primary cause of sciatica pain.
This customized approach is highly effective because it addresses the root cause of sciatica pain – spinal misalignment. By correcting the curvature of the spine, these tractions provide long-term relief, rather than merely alleviating the symptoms. Consequently, patients can experience a significant reduction in pain, an increase in mobility, and an overall improvement in their quality of life. This targeted and patient-centric approach makes Chiropractic BioPhysics® a powerful tool in the treatment of severe sciatica pain.
Treating Sciatica at the Root
Unlike traditional treatments, which mask symptoms with medication or surgical intervention, Chiropractic BioPhysics® addresses the root cause of the pain and works towards healing. The treatment promotes natural healing, leading to long-term pain relief and an improved quality of life. As such, Chiropractic BioPhysics® is not only effective for sciatica pain relief but is also a preventive approach that can help avoid future episodes of sciatica pain.
