Sciatica is often a painful condition that can make it difficult to walk, work, and even sleep. The pain typically radiates down the lower extremities and has many different causes. Chiropractic care may be able to help sciatica sufferers by treating the underlying cause of the problem with chiropractic adjustments or other methods.
Elite Spine Chiropractic has expertise in treating sciatica. Dr. Dominic Lupori is an expert in performing chiropractic adjustments to correct vertebral subluxation and promote proper nerve function. Here at Elite Spine, we unfold your body's ability to heal itself through effective chiropractic care.
Introduction About Sciatica
Your sciatic nerve begins at your spinal cord and runs through some of the most delicate parts of your body. It branches down each leg to control movement and sensation in all aspects. If irritated by inflammation or injury, it can cause tremendous pain called radiculopathy. This is commonly caused when a disk herniates into one side, causing pressure for that specific area on the spine. Then, the pressure causes extreme discomfort constantly if not treated properly.
Sciatica is not a disorder. It is a common condition that affects many people. When nerve roots in the lumbosacral spine become pinched, irritated, or inflamed. These often happen when someone has a herniated disc or stenosis and can lead to sciatic pain and numbness/tingling, as well as muscle weakness depending on where it's happening.
Sciatica is a symptom of pain that radiates from the low back down into your buttocks and down to below your knee. This is not an ideal place for sciatica because it can cause discomfort in any activity.
Sciatica usually results from an injury on the sciatic nerve which runs through your body near your spine - this condition can affect otherwise healthy people.
You owe it to yourself, your family, and your loved ones to lead a healthy life. For you to do that effectively, we need the know what is causing pain in your body so as not only to prevent future problems but find solutions now.
Elite Spine Chiropractic aims to get down into detail about your medical issue. Dr. Lupori wants to understand how the pain manifests before developing a treatment plan that works best for you.
How does River City Wellness help With Sciatica?
To restore misaligned vertebrae, chiropractors utilize a specialized skill called spinal adjustment. While techniques may vary in practice, the goal is for the spine's alignment to be restored. If you are just experiencing sciatica from injuries such as slipped discs and your chiropractor has deemed it an appropriate option after assessing symptoms, they might offer this solution with their knowledge of how these treatments work on different types of patients like yourself.
Heat and Cold Therapy
Chiropractors often recommend hot and cold pain relief therapy as an anti-inflammatory treatment. If you suffer from sciatica, this may be a possible solution to avoid medication.

Our chiropractors at River City Wellness know exactly what exercises to do for specific injuries. After giving you a proper diagnosis, they will work on various therapies that can be done at home or under their supervision. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to help with pain management because it strengthens muscles around your spinal cord as well as relaxes them. Mobility doesn't come from damage but instead is restored through healing time! It also helps people feel better by increasing endorphins which activate our body's natural pain relief system, plus amplifying happiness levels altogether.
Ultrasound therapy is a type of treatment that uses sound waves to create heat and promote healing. It can be used on many different muscle groups, such as joints or the back muscles, to provide relief from stiffness and pain.
Ultrasounds are also effective at decreasing swelling, which helps with circulation by opening up blood vessels. Thus, more oxygen-rich red blood cells reach affected areas faster than they would otherwise without it. The increased flow means stiffer muscles will loosen due to improved mobility.
Proper Diet and Nutrition
Medical experts are in agreement that magnesium-rich foods should be consumed by people with sciatica. Magnesium aids the body when it comes to releasing muscle contractions.
Dr. Lupori understands the importance of proper nutrition to overcome sciatica. At Elite Spine Chiropractic, our chiropractors will guide you to prevent the development of severe complications of sciatica.
