Sciatica Treatment from Your Austin Chiropractor Dr. Joseph Lones

Addressing back pain with appropriate chiropractic treatment begins with your Austin Chiropractor making a correct diagnosis of what is causing the pain. Lower back pain is one of the most common complaints treated by Dr. Lones simply because your spine is vulnerable to vertebral misalignment (subluxation) and disc degeneration. If you are suffering lower back pain and intense pain radiating down one side of your body, you may be diagnosed with sciatica nerve pain.

Symptoms of Sciatica

Extending down through your lower back and into your legs and feet are several nerve roots that eventually join together to form the sciatic nerve. When this nerve is damaged, compressed or inflamed by a herniated or slipped disc, bone spurs or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine's opening in the lower back), you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Burning and tingling sensations in one leg, buttocks and lower back
  • Numbness in the leg and buttock that does not go away
  • Varying pain levels from mild aches to excruciating pain that prevents you from walking or sitting comfortably
  • Worsening of sciatic pain when you sit too long, sneeze or cough.
  • Feelings of muscle weakness in the leg affected by sciatica. In some cases, numbness and weakness may impact your foot as well.

Mild sciatica may resolve itself in a few days but the reason for the flare-up requires treatment from your Austin chiropractor. Neglecting to seek help for sciatic nerve compression caused by bulging/herniated discs, subluxation or spinal stenosis will only allow the original cause to progressively worsen.

Spinal Decompression for Sciatic Pain

Spinal decompression for sciatica and disc problems is a non-surgical procedure performed by Dr. Lones that gently relieves pressure on the sciatic nerve and discs by creating an intradiscal vacuum. Freeing the sciatic nerve from the pressure produced by bulging discs or inflamed tissues allows your chiropractor to reposition displaced discs and naturally realign vertebrae. Additionally, spinal decompression treatments are conducive to healing back problems because they facilitate absorption of oxygen, nutrients and beneficial joint fluids by ligaments and soft tissues comprising the spine.

In addition, chiropractic interventions such as spinal adjustments dramatically reduce pain attributed to numerous musculoskeletal disorders, enhance flexibility (range of motion) and shorten recovery times following trauma to the spine and/or musculoskeletal system. A typical chiropractic treatment session involving adjustments takes less than an hour, with many patients enjoying relief from sciatic pain within 24 hours to 48 hours.
