Sciatica is a common condition that causes radiating pain from the lower back, through the hip, and down the leg. At Colonia Spine & Wellness Center, our team utilizes spinal adjustments to release pinched nerves and restore vertebrae to their natural alignment. This reduces inflammation and enhances blood flow to the affected area. Below we will discuss some of our methods to relieve leg and back pain caused by sciatica.


Spinal Decompression for Leg and Back Pain

Sciatica often has its origin in damaged or misaligned spinal discs. We use non-surgical spinal decompression to gently push those discs back into place and relieve your nerve pain. During the procedure, you lie on a motorized table that gently stretches your spine, encouraging herniated or bulging discs to retract and heal. At our office, spinal decompression can be a low-risk and non-invasive treatment for those suffering from sciatica, herniated discs, or degenerative disc disease.

Chiropractic Adjustments

Subluxations are misaligned vertebrae in the spine that can put undue strain on nerves, blood vessels, and surrounding tissues, leading to leg pain, back pain, tenderness, stiffness, decreased movement, and muscle spasms. Chiropractic treatment is the most efficient and natural way to relieve sciatica symptoms. A spinal adjustment performed by our chiropractor can free the sciatic nerve of its pinching sensation while decreasing inflammation in surrounding tissue.

Massage Therapy for Back and Leg Pain

Sciatica is a condition that causes intense, burning, or tingling pain along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the spine to your hips and buttocks before running down one or both legs. It may feel like an intense shooting or tingling sensation that worsens with movement, such as walking or sitting. As a result, our chiropractor team often uses deep tissue massage, which provides effective results combined with other chiropractic treatments. Massage therapy involves the manipulation of your skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Not only can it reduce stress, but it also promotes relaxation - which, in turn, may help alleviate pain.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy for sciatica seeks to relieve pressure off the sciatic nerve and restore normal motion in the low back, pelvis, and hips. This can provide back and leg pain relief while preventing future episodes from occurring.
