Chandler Sciatica Treatment
Put a Stop to Intense Back Pain
Almost everybody has heard of the term sciatica. What you might not know is that it refers to pain instead of a specific health-related diagnosis. The back pain so often associated with this term is the result of compression of an individual’s sciatic nerve. Sufferers who visit Back to Action Chiropractic and Rehab in Chandler can benefit from treatment options from our chiropractor that are natural and non-invasive.

Overview of Sciatica
Sciatica patients begin to experience discomfort when the sciatic nerve becomes compressed. The largest of human nerves, it originates in the bottom section of the spine and extends into each foot after passing through the buttocks and then traveling down the leg.
Our Chandler chiropractor notes that many patients complain of back pain. However, pain might arise at any spot along the sciatic nerve. Discomfort typically affects only one side of the body and can vary significantly as far as severity and frequency.
Our patients sometimes mention these additional symptoms:
- A loss of feeling
- Sensations of pins and needles
- Trouble sleeping
- Paralysis of a limb or muscle
- Sensations that resemble electrical shocks
- These are the most common causes:
- Herniated discs
- Repetitive abnormal seating position
- Spinal stenosis
- Bone spurs
- Misalignment of vertebrae
Chiropractic Treatment of Sciatica
The objective of chiropractic treatment for sciatica is to treat the cause of a patient’s discomfort rather than merely treating the pain he experiences. The non-invasive therapies our doctor offers result in improved flexibility, a reduction in inflammation, and less discomfort for the patient.
At the initial appointment, our chiropractor performs a comprehensive physical exam and reviews the individual’s health history, symptoms, and stated complaints. Sometimes diagnostic technology such as CT, MRI, or X-ray is helpful in identifying what is causing compression of the sciatic nerve.
Patients diagnosed with sciatica receive a customized treatment plan that might include multiple therapies. The specific combination points to the cause of nerve compression.
The primary treatment is chiropractic adjustments that move misaligned spinal vertebrae back into the appropriate position. For some patients, massage therapy is beneficial in relieving pain.
