How To Prevent And Treat Sciatica_ Part Two

In our last blog entry, we discussed the effects that sciatica can have on your body, what causes it, and how you can use proper posture to prevent or lessen the impact of the pain you may experience.

There are several different stretches that may help reduce some of the irritation and pain that can come from an irritated sciatic nerve. Most of the stretches that can help with this kind of pain are stretches that work to loosen the hips and the glutes, as these are the muscle groups that can become inflamed by sciatic nerve problems or are affected by changes in posture and gait during a sciatica episode.

In order to ensure that you are stretching properly, it is a good idea to ask your chiropractor, doctor, or your trainer about the stretches that are right for you. They can help guide you through them, gauge your reactions, and perform and form corrections that could cause more problems.

Chiropractic Care

If you have tried everything to overcome your sciatica pain — over-the-counter pain relievers, changing your posture, stretching, or other methods — and you haven’t found the relief that you so desperately need, please call Williams Chiropractic in Clemmons. We help relieve this pain through tried-and-true methods that don’t require surgery or drugs. Through adjustments and stretching, we can help your body find its ideal alignment that can reduce inflammation and pain. In addition to alignments and stretching, chiropractors may use ultrasound and other non-invasive therapeutic methods to make you feel better.

Whether you have been dealing with sciatica for years or a few weeks, you do not have to suffer any longer. Call Williams Chiropractic today to schedule your appointment. We will do everything that we can to treat your symptoms in a way that is natural and helpful. Our clinic even has the latest in computer-assisted adjustments: the Pro-Adjuster. The Pro-Adjuster helps us take the most detailed readings of how your body reacts to stimuli in order to help us decide on the best course of treatment. We have seen great success treating back pain using the Pro-Adjuster and it may be able to treat you, too. Best of all, it doesn’t take a lot of big, painful movements to affect real, lasting, and positive changes in your physiology. Instead, a series of small adjustments build into larger changes that can alleviate pain and irritation.
