With stronger and more balanced muscles in your lower back, you'll be able to better support your spine and keep your posture held in a much more healthy position to avoid future bouts of back pain or sciatica. Chiropractic treatment of the pinched sciatic pain is based on a scientific principle. This scientific principle is that the cause of pain is the restricted movements of spines caused by reduced performance and functionality. The treatment is a drug free-non invasive implying that there is no risk of side effects.
Third, as an effective technique it must have a way to get rid of the tension stored in the muscles around the sciatic nerve. This is because muscle tension is one of the causes of sciatic nerve pain.
It could be that your sciatica pain is caused by a herniated disc in your lower back. The disc is filled with fluid and if it bulges out of its position, it becomes inflamed and presses on the sciatic nerve. The objective is to "shrink" the disc by drying up the fluid and a new procedure called IDET (introdiscal electrothermy) does this very effectively with immediate results. If left alone to correct itself, the disc may take weeks to settle back into its usual place. In severe cases of herniated discs, surgical removal may be the solution.When you are in constant pain all day long, it can really affect everything you do from how (or if) you sleep, your day at work, even whether or not you can play with your children. Walking is recommended - daily, until you're walking about three miles a day; strengthening the leg and back muscles so that they become flexible. However, if your pain is severe, you may need some pain medication - there are several over- the-counter products such as ibuprofen, aspirin (for inflammation) or one of the non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS).
