Sciatica

Sciatica Treatment Provided by a Lexington, KY Chiropractor

You may notice you have a numbing sensation in your back sometimes. On the other hand, you could experience a "pins and needles" sensation that's quite unpleasant. Maybe, you experience frequent spells where you have pain. These could be signs of sciatica. At Lynch Chiropractic Center, serving Lexington, KY, and the surrounding area, we determine the cause of your sciatica and provide you with a regimen of natural treatments to assist.

Signs of Sciatica

Sciatica is a series of symptoms, rather than a condition. It stems from either damage or an injury to the sciatic nerve. This nerve is the largest in your body and travels from your lower back to your feet. For this reason, you may have pain, numbness, weakness, or a tingling sensation in your lower back or anywhere in your legs and possibly even in your feet.

Chiropractic Treatment for Sciatica

The first part of your appointment with our chiropractor consists of determining you have sciatica based on your symptoms and the location of them. To identify sciatica, our practitioner guides you through a series of motions and evaluates where the pain is and any difficulties with your range of motion. Sometimes, our chiropractor writes you an order for an x-ray, CT, or MRI to evaluate your back and also view your nerves.

The actual treatment for sciatica is usually a chiropractic adjustment provided by our chiropractor in Lexington. During this treatment, our practitioner positions you on a table. Then, he moves your back with his hands to realign the vertebrae. When the spine is in the right position, it alleviates pressure and discomfort on your nerves and other soft tissue.

Massage therapy is another option to relieve the symptoms of sciatica. A massage session consists of our therapist stimulating the soft tissue deep within your body. This relieves inflammation and softens tight muscles, ultimately reducing your pain and possibly decreasing pressure on the sciatic nerve. It's also possible that the message will encourage the release of endorphins, which reduces the amount of pain you have while also enhancing pleasure. Your body naturally releases them during exercise.

Our chiropractor may recommend exercise therapy, which is a treatment where our chiropractor guides you through a series of exercises that stretch the soft tissue in your back. The stretches encourage blood flow to the area, which may optimize healing. Additionally, these stretches enhance your range of motion. Massage therapy also relieves inflammation, which could be a culprit of your sciatica.

  • "Lynch Chiropractic Center is home to a team of some amazing professionals. The care that you are given is consistent and the information that is shared is amazing. The Lynch family truly cares for each of their patients and makes you feel welcome and goes out of their way to get you the best care. Dr. Ryan Lynch personally called another chiropractor for me in Louisiana when I went on vacation to ensure that I continued my treatments while out of town. Courteous, Caring, Sincere, Honest, & Professional are terms I often use when I talk about Lynch Chiropractic Care!!"

  • "Dr. Ryan Lynch has been adjusting my back and neck for the past month, and I will have to say that each time I go, I come out feeling more mobile and less in pain. He also explains what he is about to do and why, making you feel more involved in the procedure. The aftermath of my curved spine and a motorcycle accident started to show in forms of discomfort and pain in the recent months, and this was the place a friend of mine had highly recommended. I am glad to have taken the recommendation."
