Sciatica Treatment Tucson

What is sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. It typically occurs when a herniated disk, bone spur, or spinal stenosis compresses part of the nerve. This can result in inflammation, pain, and often some numbness in the affected leg.

How does chiropractic help with sciatica?

Chiropractic care focuses on addressing issues with your muscles and nerves, particularly in your spine. For sciatica, chiropractors use hands-on techniques (and sometimes specialized instruments) to adjust your spine. These adjustments help your body heal, reduce inflammation, alleviate pain, and improve movement by relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve. In cases of sciatica, decompression therapy is often used to complement the adjustment in order to aid and enhance the healing process.

Is it safe?

Yes, chiropractic care is safe when performed by a licensed and trained chiropractor. Serious problems from spinal adjustments are very rare, especially compared to the side effects of medications and the risks of surgery. Chiropractors undergo extensive training to ensure they can help you without causing harm. During your first appointment, we will discuss your health history and any concerns you may have before starting treatment.

What happens during a chiropractic visit for sciatica?

On your first visit, we’ll review your health history and perform a physical exam. Sometimes, we may refer you for x-rays. We’ll discuss your findings with you and outline a treatment plan tailored to your goals. This usually includes spinal adjustments, decompression therapy, and other treatments to help your body heal, relieve your sciatica, improve your comfort, and enhance your mobility.

How well does chiropractic care work for sciatica?

Dr. Cox has helped hundreds of patients recover from carpal tunnel syndrome over the past 25 years. Many have returned to their normal lives pain-free. Studies show that chiropractic care can significantly reduce pain, improve hand and wrist function, and enhance overall quality of life. Each care plan is personalized to suit your specific needs and goals.

When should I think about seeing a chiropractor for sciatica?

You should schedule your new patient appointment if:

  • Your sciatica keeps recurring or won’t go away.
  • You experience pain radiating to your buttocks or legs.
  • Your lower back feels stiff, or you have limited mobility.
  • Certain activities worsen your pain.
  • You prefer non-drug and non-surgery options for pain relief.

Ok so I got to my appointment early to complete the new patient paperwork and was immediately met with one of the nicest smiles I haven’t seen in 2 years since the pandemic, Dr. Cox! He was helpful and even made fun of himself about the working of the tablet. The office is immaculate though from the outside of the building I was a bit worried 😉I initially went in for the Slim program and was introduced to Rena! What a wonderful surprise, So knowledgeable brought tears to my eyes with all of the new information she provided. I feel safe in Life Aligned hands and will now be a part of their family!

Above what we expected. Both my husband and I have found Life Aligned Wellness more than we anticipated. We have both been to chiropractors in the past but this is so much more advanced with the technology and the techniques both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala have shown to help us. We have to drive 40 minutes one way to their office but it is well worth it. Thank you to both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala for their services.

I have had years of discomfort stemming from misalignment of my spine. Despite yoga, massage and heat therapy, I still could not relief the nerve irritation, tight muscles, and restricted range of motion. During my first adjustment, which was gentle and not uncomfortable, I felt instant improvement. I am eager to continue on this healing journey with the talented and compassionate team at Life Aligned Wellness Center.
