Frequently Asked Questions

How do you get sciatica?

Sciatica is often the result of cumulative damage. Years of poor posture and being overweight can contribute to sciatica. An episode can be triggered by something as simple as bending over to tie your shoes. Spinal deterioration is another culprit.

Can chiropractic cure sciatica?

Chiropractic doesn’t cure anything! Only your body can do that. The purpose of chiropractic is to help your spine work as it should, reducing nerve irritation and restoring your body’s healing ability. Because we do a different kind of chiropractic care called “Reconstructive Care”, we can work with you so the sciatica does not come back.

How much chiropractic care will be needed?

Most people feel 50 – 60% better within the first 2 weeks. The majority of people can do all of their normal daily activities within a few weeks. Sciatica most often happens when a herniated disk or an overgrowth of bone puts pressure on the lumbar spine nerve roots. It takes 3-6 months for a disc to completely heal. Safe and effective, our chiropractic care will help the disc to heal properly so you can go back to doing all of the activities you enjoy.
