sciatica reviewHave you ever felt a radiating, numb, or sharp pain that goes from your lower back, through your hips, and down to your toes?

You could be dealing with sciatica, a condition that’s typically caused by one of three problems that affect your sciatic nerve.

At Dudum Chiropractic, we’re proud to work with patients of all walks of life to help them overcome sciatic nerve pain naturally, without the need for surgery, medications, or injections.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition that can be caused by a herniated disc, bone spur, or muscle strain. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body, and when it becomes compressed or irritated, it can cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.

The three main causes of the condition include:

Herniated discs – Can occur when a disc slips out of alignment and puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. Our team has had incredible success utilizing non-invasive spinal decompression therapy to help the discs rehydrate and get back into proper position.

Joint or pelvis misalignment – Typically causes inflammation or pinching in the area, leading to sciatica. One of the best solutions for this type of sciatica is gentle, focused chiropractic adjustments delivered with extreme precision.

Piriformis syndrome – Also known as piriformis dysfunction, this happens when the piriformis muscle is experiencing too much stress or pressure, leading to problems with the nerve. If this is your diagnosis, we’ll focus on specific stretches and exercise as well as myofascial release therapy to help relieve pressure and improve function.

Diagnosing Sciatica

We’re proud to use specific diagnostic techniques to determine exactly what’s causing your sciatic nerve pain so that we can get to the root cause of your issue and help you get back to living and loving life.

We may recommend x-rays or an MRI to get the best look at what’s really going on in your body. From there, we’ll develop a care plan that fits your needs.
