Sciatica Treatment in San Antonio, TX

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, and one of the most important nerves. It starts from your lower back, specifically lumbar segment 3, combines with the lower spine, and runs down the buttocks and the back of each leg. You could say that the sciatic nerve is also the life nerve, since it stretches to the back of each foot and enables us to walk. Maintaining a healthy sciatic nerve is crucial for your motor and sensory skills. If you're suffering from sciatic pain, you can turn to Stelzer Chiropractic for sciatica treatment in San Antonio, TX.

Symptoms & Causes of Sciatica

If you have sciatica, you may suffer from a few of these symptoms: constant pain in one side of the buttock or leg, difficulty sitting without pain, a burning, tingling, weakness, numbness, or searing sensation in the leg, difficulty moving the legs or feet, and severe lower back pain that increases while walking or standing. When your sciatic nerve is agitated or compressed, you have sciatica. This is also known as a pinched nerve, or herniated disc. Other causes of sciatica are degenerative disc disease, stress fractures, spinal canal narrowing, and joint dysfunction.

How Stelzer Chiropractic Treats Sciatica & Lower Back Pain

We treat sciatica and lower back pain using tried and true chiropractic methods - a combination of spinal adjustments and manual manipulation to improve the alignment of the spinal column. Another common chiropractic lower back pain treatment is mobilization. We will slowly move and stretch the muscles along the sciatic nerve to improve flexibility and mobility. Overtime, this should reduce lower back pain and aid in healing sciatica.
