Sciatica Treatment in Seattle, WA

Effective Chiropractic Care for Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of the body and is often caused by a herniated disk, bone spurs on the spine, or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis) that compresses part of the nerve. This can cause inflammation, pain, and often some numbness in the affected leg. At Fremont Spine + Wellness, we focus on non-surgical treatments to relieve sciatica symptoms and address the underlying causes of nerve compression.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica:

  • Pain radiating from the lower spine to the buttock and down the back of the leg.
  • Discomfort along the nerve pathway, with pain that ranges from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation or excruciating discomfort.
  • Numbness, tingling, or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot.
  • Pain that worsens with prolonged sitting or during sudden movements such as coughing or sneezing.

Chiropractic Treatments for Sciatica Include:

  • Spinal Adjustments: Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine and reduce nerve irritability caused by sciatica.
  • Ice/Cold Therapy: Reduces inflammation and helps to control sciatic pain.
  • Ultrasound: Gentle heat created by sound waves that penetrate deep into tissues, helping to increase circulation and reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness, and pain.
  • TENS Unit (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation): A small, battery-powered device that stimulates the muscles through variable intensities of electrical current to help manage pain and reduce muscle spasms.
