St. Louis Medial Center Provides Sciatic Nerve Treatment and Pain Management
Pinched Sciatic Nerve Treatment for Relief from Back Pain
If you suffer from a pinched sciatica nerve, it is natural to be frustrated with traditional medical treatments. Prescription painkillers can provide temporary relief by numbing your brain’s ability to process the pain. Once the medication wears off, however, the pain remains. This constant shooting pain can make it impossible to sleep at night, painful to sit or stand for extended periods, and affect your ability to concentrate at work. With sciatic nerve treatment from our St. Louis chiropractor Dr. David Sciortino and his team, relief from back pain is possible.
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive pain management solution for a pinched sciatic nerve that is entirely drug-free. Treatment begins with an appointment to diagnosis the specific cause for your pinched sciatic nerve. In many patients, this is due to a herniated or slipped disc. Once this underlying misalignment is identified, Dr. Sciortino and his team will create a custom treatment program to restore proper alignment to your spine. Chiropractic adjustments help create space between the vertebrae in your lower back. This allows the herniated disc to return to its proper position, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, complementary treatments like trigger point therapy can provide immediate pain relief. When our bodies are in pain, tension can become trapped deep within the muscle tissue, leading to constant spasms, aches and pains. Trigger point therapy helps release this tension, while increasing endorphin levels that naturally create a sense of well-being. Trigger point therapy also helps to safely restore movement to the body. This is especially important if a pinched sciatic nerve has kept you from being active on a regular basis. Your muscles may be stiff and sore, and it’s natural to worry that increased activity could trigger pain. With chiropractic adjustments and complementary therapies, Dr. Sciortino and his team will help you once again live an active life.
