Every individual is unique, and so is their experience with sciatica. Our fully qualified chiropractors conduct thorough assessments to understand your specific condition, considering factors such as medical history, lifestyle, and any pre-existing conditions. This personalized approach allows us to tailor a safe and effective treatment plan that meets your unique needs.
Chiropractic adjustments, which involve gentle spinal manipulations, are a cornerstone of our treatment plans. These adjustments are performed with precision and care to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve and improve overall spinal health.
With sciatica we often also use a passive technique called blocking. This is a particularly safe and comfortable technique where you lay relaxed on some carefully positioned, padded wedge shaped blocks for some time. The positioning of the blocks plus the effect of you own body weight and gravity do the work in aligning your spine and pelvis.
This is particularly useful if you are in severe pain and active manual adjustments could make you uncomfortable or nervous. Our focus on safety ensures that each adjustment is customized to your comfort level, making it a suitable option for individuals of all ages.
At the earliest stage we will encourage you to actively participate to enhance the effectiveness of the sciatica treatment. We will include therapeutic exercises, stretching routines, and lifestyle recommendations designed to support your recovery and prevent future episodes of sciatic pain.
