Sciatica pain can be excruciating, sometimes even debilitating. Dr. Kenyon diagnoses and treats patients who are dealing with daily or intermittent sciatica. If you have pain or neurological symptoms from sciatica, don’t suffer any longer. Schedule an appointment with Rivergate Chiropractic in Madison, Tennessee.
Sciatica is a symptom caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve, which travels from the lower back through the hips and down each leg. When the nerve becomes irritated, the patient experiences pain, numbness, and tingling down the leg. In most cases, sciatica affects only one side of the body at a time.
Most cases of sciatica occur because a herniated disc is pressing on the sciatic nerve. However, sciatica may also occur because of a bone spur or nerve damage.
The standard medical approach for sciatica treatment varies and depends on the severity of the condition. Dr. Kenyon may treat sciatica with rest, physical therapy, or oral medications. Surgery is used sometimes, but it’s often ineffective. Surgery carries significant risks for the patient, so it’s usually used as a last resort when other treatments have failed.
Chiropractic care can alleviate sciatica pain without putting the patient at risk for serious complications. In most cases, sciatica pain originates in the lumbar spine. To provide relief, Dr. Kenyon treats the alignment problems in the area that’s putting pressure on the sciatic nerve. He can also treat any herniated discs that contribute to sciatica.
Chiropractic care is non-invasive and doesn’t have serious side effects, and studies show that it’s an effective treatment for sciatica. Patients who undergo chiropractic care don’t need to worry about becoming addicted to painkillers, contracting a post-surgical infection, or facing any of the other possible complications of traditional treatments.
