Are you experiencing back pain? At Omni Wellness Center in Charlotte, learn common causes and symptoms of sciatica, plus how our chiropractor in Charlotte treats sciatica, then try our natural pain relief for your symptoms.
Sciatica arises when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed or the lumbar spine is irritated. This may happen due to a pulled muscle, injury, inflammation, slipped disc, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, or even pregnancy. Sleeping on a soft mattress, being overweight, and wearing high heels are additional risk factors for sciatica.
The main symptom of sciatica is pain that runs along the back, hips, and legs. The pain is generally worse on one side of the body and can affect either the front or back of the legs.
Some people feel tingling, pins and needles, or a burning feeling. While some sciatica sufferers experience chronic pain, others feel sharp shooting pains, which can make it difficult to stand up.
We use acupuncture and chiropractic care to manage sciatica symptoms. Acupuncture stimulates endorphins for natural pain management while relieving symptoms of sciatica, such as pins and needles or muscular tension. Since acupuncture promotes healing, this can treat underlying causes.
Chiropractic adjustments reposition your spine and remove subluxations that interfere with natural spinal alignment. These adjustments gently push the spine into alignment and address underlying causes of sciatica, such as a slipped disc or pulled muscle. By restoring the alignment of your spine, we take pressure off of your sciatic nerve.
To complement our acupuncture and chiropractic treatment, we may make lifestyle suggestions designed to relieve your pain. For instance, we might recommend stretches that alleviate pain or suggest you invest in a more ergonomic mattress or desk chair to reduce your symptoms.
