If you struggle with sciatica, you can rely on Dr. Wilson and his team at Holistic Touch Medical Center in Little Rock, AR. People often experience sciatica because of a pinched nerve, herniated disc, bone spur, or nerve compression caused by disease. If you are unsure about your sciatica, we can help you determine your next steps.
Sciatica is pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve. This is the nerve that branches through your lower back, down through your bottom, and into each leg. Often, people with this kind of pain are impacted on only one side of the body. This condition often stems from a problem such as a herniated disc, inflammation, or an injury.
The Symptoms of Sciatica
The first symptom that most people experience is pain stemming from the lower spine, buttocks, or either leg. This pain can be an ache that feels mild in the leg or a sharp stabbing pain in your bottom, running the gamut in terms of severity. Some people experience more than pain, which may include numbness, muscle weakness, tingling, and burning.
If you are experiencing the symptoms of sciatica, schedule an appointment at our medical center for a proper diagnosis. Our chiropractor will perform a physical examination and order imaging tests to develop a proper treatment plan for your condition. We want to rule out other health issues that may cause these symptoms.
Chiropractic Care Provides Protection Against Sciatica
If you have sciatica, you can make some lifestyle changes that will reduce your symptoms. For example, exercise can help strengthen your back and core, which can prevent symptoms that are associated with sciatica. Our chiropractor will also provide exercises that can help you maintain proper posture when you sit or stand. Each case is different and may require a different combination of chiropractic techniques to help ease your symptoms.
