Sciatica Treatment From Our Dunedin Chiropractor
If you’re suffering from sciatica, our skilled and experienced Dunedin chiropractor at Raveling Chiropractic Center is here to help. For more than 30 years, our very own Dr. Paul Raveling has been helping patients just like you find long-term relief from sciatica, which is caused by compression of the sciatic nerve in the lower back.
Why Chiropractic Treatment is Best for Sciatic Nerve Pain
There are many reasons to turn to chiropractic treatment for sciatic nerve pain. For starters, chiropractic techniques and therapies are 100% natural, non-invasive, and drug-free. In turn, these treatments are free of the risks and side effects commonly associated with prescription painkillers and invasive procedures (such as surgeries).
At Raveling Chiropractic Center, we offer a wide range of therapies and techniques to help you find relief from sciatica. The most common treatment we utilize is that of spinal adjustment, which involves the skilled and manual manipulation of the spine itself. The purpose of a spinal adjustment is to improve the overall alignment of the spine, thus relieving compression on the sciatic nerve, reducing inflammation, and helping you find relief from your pain.
In addition to spinal adjustment, cold therapy can also be effective at reducing inflammation and controlling pain or other symptoms related to sciatica. It is not uncommon for us to recommend a few treatment options in conjunction with each other to ensure the best results. For instance, if a herniated or bulging disc is contributing to sciatic nerve pain, we may also recommend spinal decompression therapy to treat the herniated/bulging disc and, in turn, provide relief of the excessive pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve by the dislodged disc.
