Sciatica Treatment in York, PA
The sciatic nerve is the largest in the body. When this nerve, which runs through the spine, becomes compressed, pinched, or otherwise irritated, the result is a set of symptoms referred to by healthcare professionals as “sciatica.” Sciatica symptoms generally affect the lower back, buttocks, and legs, and can make it difficult to walk, stand, and sit. At Chiropractic Medical Center, we offer several treatment options designed to safely and effective relieve pain associated with sciatica.
The most common symptoms associated with sciatica include:
- muscle weakness; and
- shooting pain.
To determine if your symptoms are related to problems with your sciatic nerve, our healthcare professional will go over your medical history and conduct a physical examination. In some cases, a diagnostic assessment may be performed.
Depending on your case, our healthcare team may recommend spinal manipulation, spinal decompression, or physiotherapy to treat your sciatica symptoms. In addition, we will offer advice on lifestyle changes that can be implemented to reduce the risk of recurrence.
While sciatica pain will sometimes go away on its own, therapy can expedite the process. For more information on our sciatica treatments, please call our office now at 717-767-4151 to schedule a time for your FREE evaluation.
