Sciatica is a painful, chronic condition that can have a serious impact on your quality of life. Not only does sciatica impede an active lifestyle, it also can make it impossible to sleep comfortably at night or even sit for extended periods. Our chiropractors in Tacoma understand your frustrations and is here to help. At Proctor Chiropractic, we are proud to be a leader in providing natural sciatica treatment. Our innovative approach to care integrates chiropractic adjustments with complementary wellness therapies, delivering long-lasting, chronic pain relief.
Effective sciatica back pain relief starts with identifying the underlying trigger for a patient’s pain. For many patients, this pain is triggered by a spinal misalignment. An untreated personal injury, car accident injury or other accident can cause a herniated disc or other spinal misalignment. If this disc places pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can trigger a radiating, numbing pain sensation along the length of the nerve. This condition is known as sciatica. As long as the herniated disc continues to compress the sciatic nerve, pain will persist.
If you are experiencing sciatica pain, our chiropractor will perform a full diagnostic evaluation in order to determine the specific trigger for your pain. Once we have identified the location of any spinal subluxations, Dr. Keogh will create a custom treatment plan to provide drug-free back pain relief. The goal of our treatment program is to provide natural pain relief while also addressing the underlying cause for your pain. We achieve this by alleviating nerve compression through gentle, precise hands-on adjustments.
Chiropractic care is the foundation of our natural sciatica treatment in Tacoma. Gentle hands-on adjustments restore proper alignment to the spine. We combine these treatments with chiropractic rehabilitation for enhanced mobility. We find that many of our sciatica patients not only experience ongoing pain, but also suffer from mobility restrictions. Corrective exercises along with muscle work, like fascia release techniques, enhance the benefits of chiropractic adjustments. We teach patients corrective exercises that can be done from the comfort of your own home. These exercises build stability, balance, coordination, and flexibility. Most importantly, they help to restore a full range of movement without risking additional injury.
Through decades of treatment experience, Dr. Keogh has found that chiropractic treatments and chiropractic rehabilitation are the most effective treatment approach for chronic pain relief. Our approach to natural sciatica treatment truly makes a difference for our patients. Rather than relying on medication to “cover up” pain symptoms, chiropractic care directly addresses the root cause for a patient’s pain. Our chiropractic rehabilitation program further enhances these pain relief benefits by restoring mobility to the body.
