The award winning Land O Lakes FL chiropractor, Dr. Michael A. Craven, and his staff would like to announce that they have proven natural methods to assist local people who are suffering with sciatica. Sciatica is a specific pain affecting the outer side of the leg, hip, and back. It is caused by the compression of a spinal nerve root in the back, often caused by an intervertebral disk degeneration known as radiculopathy, and can also be referred to as neuralgia or neuropathy. Sciatica pain can sometimes be intolerable, but there is help and pain relief with chiropractic care.
Patients who respond to chiropractic care can feel relief for up to a year. Our first step is to review the medical history of a patient, including any x-rays, CT scans, or MRIs. This exam will rule out any contraindications to chiropractic therapies and spinal adjustment. Our Land O Lakes FL chiropractor will utilize non-invasive and drug-free care. Some cases of sciatica will respond to a variety of different treatments like spinal adjustments, cold ice therapy, TENS, or ultrasound. A TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) unit is a portable, battery-powered box which stimulates muscles by applying varying intensities of electrical current to reduce muscle spasms and control acute pain. Ultrasound provides gentle heat generated by sound waves that are able to penetrate deeply into tissues. Cold and ice therapy assists in controlling sciatic pain by reducing inflammation. Spinal adjustments aid in restoring misaligned vertebrae to their correct position in the spinal column.
