Chiropractic Treatment of Sciatic Symptoms
Hickory Chiropractic Clinic offers non-invasive (non-surgical) and drug-free alternatives to treat your sciatica symptoms. The type of chiropractic treatment provided depends on the cause of your sciatica. A sciatica treatment plan may include several different treatments such as ice/cold therapies, ultrasound, TENS, and spinal adjustments (sometimes called spinal manipulation).
Chiropractic Adjustments (Spinal Manipulation)
Restricted spinal movement leads to pain and reduced function and performance. Spinal adjustment helps to reduce nerve irritability responsible for causing inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, and other symptoms related to sciatica. Adjustments should not be painful. Spinal manipulation is proven to be safe and effective.
Dr. Smith and Dr. deWitt are only interested in caring for you and relieving your pain. If we determine your sciatica requires treatment by another type of doctor, then we will refer you to that specialty. We will happily continue to treat your symptoms and co-manage your healthcare with the referred specialist.
