Written By Premier Chiropractic and Performance on October 1, 2020

rsz sciatica2You can’t mistake that shooting pain of sciatica. 

Up to 40% of people will experience sciatic pain at some point in their lives with cases ranging from mild to debilitating. 

Sciatica can be serious. About 30% of sciatica sufferers will still experience pain one-year out and 20% will miss work.

Many people don’t realize that chronic sciatic pain is a symptom of deeper spinal damage. Fortunately, chiropractic offers safe and effective sciatica treatment. Here’s why.

Why Should You Choose Chiropractic for Sciatica Treatment?

Sciatica isn’t a condition itself – it’s a symptom of disc or spinal damage. 

Most sciatica cases stem from a herniated, bulging, or slipped disc in your lower back. The disc moves out of place and pinches or irritates your large sciatic nerve which runs from your buttock down through your thigh.

No amount nor strength of pain medication will fix the problem. Instead, it’s critical to address your spine’s structure, posture, and any disc damage. 

  1. It’s Non-Invasive

Your chiropractic doctor will use the gentlest treatment method possible. 

  1. Chiropractic Addresses Sciatica at Its Source

Your doctor will figure out what’s causing your sciatica and develop a treatment plan to move forward. The goal is to fix the damage triggering your sciatic nerve irritation.

  1. It Focuses on Long-Term Recovery

First, your doctor will recommend a short-term treatment plan to relieve your immediate pain. The goal is to get you feeling better! 

Next, your treatment will focus on repairing any damage and preventing your sciatic pain from returning with exercises and stretches.

  1. Most Insurance Plans Cover Chiropractic and It’s Affordable

Your Jacksonville chiropractic office should accept any major insurance provider. If you’re one of the millions of uninsured Americans, cash payments are much more affordable than surgeries or physician visits.
