Treatment for Sciatica
Spinal alignment is when the chiropractor aligns your spinal column using manipulations with their hands.
The doctor will have you sit or lay in the needed position and apply force to push your body slightly passed its normal range of motion causing a pop. This force essentially pops your body back into a healthy alignment that will alleviate pain immediately.
This popping noise is the result of trapped gas between joints being released when a chiropractor manipulates your body. The release of gas is what alienated the pressure making you feel better. Did you even know gas could be trapped in your joints and cause so much pain?
There is no reason to mask sciatica pain with medicine, when you can visit your favorite chiropractor and fix it at the source avoiding medications that can cause more harm than good. If you are suffering come see us for a consultation and see how chiropractic can help you.
For 6 months, I was dealing with a pain in my side that several doctor’s visits, expensive medical tests, and even another chiropractor had not been able to name or treat. I scheduled a regular chiropractic appointment with Dr. Vann and In 3 minutes, she relieved me of pain that several doctors had not been able to identify. I highly recommend Dr. Vann.
