Atlas Total Health Chiropractic –

Your Chiropractor for Sciatica

Sciatica refers to back and leg pain caused by a pressure on the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. When something either injures or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause pain in the lower back that then spreads to the hip, buttocks, and legs. 

We will examine and review your medical history to determine what is causing sciatica pain. Chiropractic treatment is based on the principle that restricted spinal movement leads to pain and reduced function. Chiropractic care helps the body heal itself with non-invasive (non-surgical), drug-free treatment.

At Atlas Total Health Chiropractic, our success is measured not just by the treatments we provide but by the quality of life of each patient – one adjustment at a time.”

    Sciatica normally occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes pinched, commonly by a herniated disk in your spine or by an overgrowth of bone on your vertebrae. Other risk factors that cause sciatic nerve pain are:

    • Age
    • Occupation
    • Lifestyle (Obesity)
    • Prolonged Sitting

    If the symptoms of sciatica are mild and last less than a month, it is probably acute sciatica and does not usually necessitate medical intervention. 

    What are the Symptoms?

    • Sharp pain in the leg, buttock, or lower back;
    • Tingling or numbness in the foot, buttocks, or legs;
    • A burning sensation in the foot, buttocks, or legs;
    • Chronic aches and pains;
    • Weakness in one leg; and
    • Trouble controlling bowel movements.

    Our chiropractors for sciatica pain in Tennessee and Georgia will quickly reduce inflammation to allow your body to start healing properly.

    Our experienced sciatica chiropractors will gently manipulate your spine to relieve pressure from the sciatic nerve. Additional treatments that we provide include massage, hot and cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and the use of a traction table. Our doctors take the time to teach you the correct way to sit, stand, stretch, and move when exercising or lifting heavy objects. Core stability is particularly important for patients who have developed sciatica; increasing core and back strength can help hold the spine in place.

    Many people prefer a natural way of sciatica treatment before resorting to medications, surgery, or steroid injections. In these cases, they may seek a sciatica chiropractor for treatment. The chiropractic treatment for sciatic pain is focused on assisting the body to heal itself in a drug and surgery-free process. The type of treatment will be determined by the outcome of your individual assessment.
