Many Vancouver sciatica sufferers may not realize that the term refers to a collection of symptoms related to the sciatic nerve, as opposed to a specific disease or condition. The symptoms can include everything from back pain to odd sensations in one leg. Fortunately, here at Killian Chiropractic in Vancouver our chiropractor has the tools, experience and expertise to pinpoint the cause of your symptoms and administer the proper chiropractic care, back exercises and wellness programs as a comprehensive sciatica treatment plan.
Sciatica involves an impingement (pinching) of the nerve by some other part of the body. An auto accident injury, for instance, may throw the vertebrae out of balance and cause one of more intervertebral discs to “bulge” out of position. The displaced discs then press upon the sciatic nerve. The vertebrae themselves can also cause impingement, especially if one vertebra slips forward onto another vertebra. Spinal stenosis, an overgrowth of the bone surrounding the spinal cord, can impinge nerve roots. Muscle strains and changes in weight distribution, such as those encountered in pregnancy, often cause nerve pressure.
Chiropractic care can do wonders for sciatic nerve issues. Our chiropractor, Dr. Killian, combines careful diagnostic work with years of experience to isolate the underlying cause(s) of your sciatica. Spinal adjustments or decompression can straighten misalignments and shift bulging discs away from the nerve roots. We can then address muscle weakness through back exercises or other therapies, and recommend ongoing chiropractic care and wellness practices to help you avoid a host of other ailments, from headaches and migraines to allergies. Contact our Vancouver office to learn more.
