How does chiropractic treat sciatic symptoms?
After the diagnosis and assessment, a treatment plan based on the findings will be put together to address your specific needs. The type of treatment will depend on what’s causing sciatica and may include several different treatments such as:
- Ice/Cold therapy Used to reduce any inflammation that is causing sciatic pain.
- TENS unit (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) A muscle stimulating machine used to reduce muscles spasms and control acute pain.
- Adjustments (spinal manipulation) One of the most common options used by Dr. Mouroux to realign the body to alleviate restricted movement of the spine.
These treatment options are non-invasive and work to help the body heal itself, while offering immediate relief from sciatica pain.
