O’fallon Crossing Chiropractic provides comprehensive care for pain relief from a variety of health conditions. Our team of chiropractors, Dr. Hadden and Dr. Malone, are dedicated to helping each patient to get the level of care and attention they need. If you are suffering from sciatica or you think you may be, we highly recommend coming in to see our chiropractor in our O’Fallon office for an appointment.
What Is Sciatica?
The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. It runs from the middle of your lower back down into your buttocks and into each of the legs. This nerve is very vulnerable to pinching as well as inflammation due to accidents and disease. When this happens, you’ll likely feel a sensation of pain running from your lower back into your legs. This pain is called sciatica. It can be very debilitating and tends to provide patients with limited mobility. However, we can help you find low back pain relief from sciatica throughout chiropractic care.
How Can Your O'Fallon Chiropractor Help You?
If you are suffering from the following types of pain, we highly recommend coming in to see your O'Fallon chiropractor for an examination:
- Pain that radiates from your lower back down into the legs
- Pain can come and go and can also can range in severity
- Muscle weakness especially in the legs
- The pain can come on suddenly or seem to always be there
- You have trouble controlling your bladder or bowels, in severe cases
When you come in to see your chiropractor, our first step will be to provide you with a thorough examination. We’ll conduct a variety of tests including x-rays to understand the cause of your problem. We can then offer a customized treatment plan to address what you are feeling.
Low Back Pain Relief from Chiropractic Care
This is a typical cause of pain in the lower back. And, with chiropractic care, we can offer low back pain relief. To achieve this, we’ll use chiropractic adjustments to reduce the pain and pressure on the sciatic nerve. Often, when this nerve is inflamed or pinched, it leads to the type of pain you have. By using spinal manipulation, we can reduce the underlying cause of your pain.
In addition to providing chiropractic care, our treatment may also involve the use of corrective exercises to help improve any imbalances that may have brought on this pain as well as providing you with wellness care. We’ll talk about other holistic treatments that may be able to provide you with the relief you need as well. It’s unlikely that sciatica will go away on its own without treatment. However, most patients do not need pain medications or surgical procedures to find long-lasting relief.
