Functional Chiropractic addresses all muscular and joint pain with non-surgical solution. We focus on adjustments to your back and neck, but the benefits of these adjustments treat other parts of your body as well as certain conditions and chronic pain. It is our goal to return you to a more functional and enjoyable lifestyle. 

Your first visit with Functional Chiropractic will be consultative – we will discuss the practical discipline of chiropractic care and how it benefits you. Based on your ailments, we will determine the source cause and come up with a solution plan that is customized and tailored to your specific need. Since most bodily ailments can be treated without medications or surgery, our clinic uses non-invasive alternatives to treat the actual source or the problem, rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic care is specifically ideal for sciatic nerve pain, also known as sciatica. Not only can we relieve your sciatic nerve pain, we can also address the source from your spine that is causing the pain so that overtime it will subside entirely. If you are experiencing back pain, it may be a symptom of sciatica. 

What causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is caused by a variety of factors including a bulging or herniation of a lumbar disc, degeneration of discs, spondylolisthesis, or spondylolysis, piriformis syndrome, or other causes. A herniated disc may be treated conservatively or surgically depending on the degree of pain and disability. Sciatica can be treated by chiropractors who specialize in this condition, like our doctors at Functional Chiropractic. Chiropractors can help people who suffer from sciatica by finding the source of the problem and correcting it.

When the spinal cord shifts out of position, it causes that compression, which then provokes inflammation in that part of the spine. That inflammation triggers pain on one side of the body. Walking, standing, or moving a leg may become difficult.

How Chiropractors Can Relieve Sciatica Pain

Chiropractors can diagnose sciatica with a physical exam. We help patients manage pain caused by spinal stenosis and disc degeneration. Chiropractors can also help reduce back pain caused by injuries. We use chiropractic adjustments to relieve pressure on the nerves.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if I have sciatica?

Sciatica is a painful condition that usually affects people who sit all day long. It usually begins slowly, but gets worse as time goes by. People who suffer from this condition might experience a sharp, burning sensation, or a shooting pain. Sciatica can also cause numbness, tingles, and muscle weakness in legs.

How is Sciatica Treated?

Chiropractic Care is the most effective and least invasive way to treat sciatica and its root causes. The therapy used in chiropractic care includes stretching exercises, traction, massages, and trigger point therapy. Treatment varies based on the severity of the condition and the cause. Chiropractors at Functional Chiropractic manipulate the spine to realign it, massage certain areas near the spine to help relax muscles, and guide physical therapy activities to strengthen the back and relieve pressure on the nerves.
