Sciatica FAQ with Dr. Brennan

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is among the most common conditions treated at Brennan Chiropractic & Laser Pain Solutions. This painful, often excruciating condition is caused by pinching or pressing on the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve originates in the lower spine, passes through the buttocks, and goes down the back of the legs. Impingement of the nerve can occur in the spine or in a muscle in the buttocks called the Piriformis.

What triggers sciatica?

In many cases, age-related spinal degeneration is to blame for sciatica, which may explain why it usually makes its first appearance after the age of 30. As your discs lose some of their height and your spinal configuration changes, discs or other structures can push against the sciatic nerve roots. This problem can also result from an acute injury that suddenly throws your spine out of alignment and/or produces herniated discs. Even pregnancy or obesity can lead to sciatica.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

While low back pain sometimes occurs with sciatica, the most recognizable symptoms include pain down the back of the leg, buttock or hip pain, tingling or numbness in the leg or foot, and loss of strength or motor control in the affected extremity.

How is sciatica pain treated at Brennan Chiropractic & Laser Pain Solutions?

Fortunately, sciatica pain is highly treatable with a variety chiropractic techniques. Equally important, chiropractic treatment addresses the underlying cause of nerve pain and is far less risky than taking medication, having epidural injections, or undergoing surgery. Along with manual adjustments, Brennan Chiropractic & Laser Pain Solutions is equipped with the Sigma Ultralign Adjusting system. The Sigma Ultralign consists of a hand-held electronic sensor device that’s connected to a computer monitor. The sensor measures tissue resistance in the spine, displays findings on the screen, and is then programmed to treat the damaged areas by improving joint mobility, breaking up scar tissue, and stimulating blood flow and oxygenation. It effectively releases pressure on the joints that are related to the sciatic nerve*.

How does spinal decompression work in remedying sciatica?

Another valuable tool in the chiropractic arsenal is spinal decompression therapy. Spinal decompression therapy involves gentle mechanical stretching of the spine to literally relieve pressure on spinal discs.* Often, the cause of sciatica results from an injured joint or compressed disc in the lower back pressing on the nerve roots that form the sciatic nerve.

How does MLS Laser Therapy alleviate sciatica pain?

MLS Laser Therapy is a game-changer in eliminating sciatica pain because it is a safe, non-invasive, pain-free method that effectively treats sciatica without side effects. The laser uses two wavelengths of infrared light that penetrate deeply into tissue to stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage, improve cellular metabolism, and stimulate the healing process. The results of the treatment are: reduced swelling, inflammation, and pain, the stimulation of soft tissue repair, and restoration of proper nerve function.
