4 Ways We Tackle Sciatic Pain So You Can Feel Relief

We use a multi-faceted approach to sciatic pain relief.

  1. Chiropractic Adjustments. Misalignments in your spine, known as subluxations, can cause nerve interference and lead to sciatic pain. Chiropractic adjustments can enhance your overall spinal health, reducing the likelihood of future sciatic pain episodes.
  2. Spinal Decompression. Spinal decompression relieves pressure on the spinal nerves, including the sciatic nerve. This therapy gently stretches your spine, creating negative pressure within the spinal discs. This can retract or reposition herniated or bulging discs, providing significant pain relief.
  3. Acupuncture. Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese practice that involves the insertion of fine needles at specific body points to balance the body’s energy and stimulate healing. It’s been shown to be effective in managing various types of pain, including sciatic pain. Acupuncture increases blood flow to the affected area, reduces muscle tension, and stimulates the body’s natural painkillers.
  1. Lifestyle Recommendations. At Encompass Chiropractic Centers, we think healthcare should be proactive, not just reactive. As part of our holistic approach, we provide lifestyle recommendations to help prevent sciatic pain from recurring. This may include advice on posture, ergonomic changes at work, regular exercise, and a healthy diet.
