Sciatica Treatment in Tralee
Ever felt deep pain ripping down the back of your legs, perhaps with numbness and tingling that extends down to your foot? It could just be aches, pins and needles from sleeping or sitting in an uncomfortable position, or it could be a sign of sciatica. Chiropractic treatment can help relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and find relief from sciatica pain.
Chiropractic to Relieve Sciatica Pain
Chiropractors are a great place to start when you have sciatica-like shooting pain or associated symptoms such as leg or foot tingling, numbness and weakness.
When you visit the team at Vitality Chiropractic to treat sciatica, the first action we will undertake will be to asses the root cause of your pain, from then on we can create a tailored treatment plan to lessen your pain and improve your quality of life.
The main form of sciatica pain treatment typically involves chiropractic adjustments (also known as spinal manipulation) that aim to improve the health of your spine and the position of the vertebrae.
Along with the reduction in pain that you will experience with this treatment, you should also benefit from better joint mobility and an improved range of motion!
Chiropractic care is 100% drug-free and offers relief from pain without the need for any addictive medications: our goal is healing the body from within, not just masking the pain!
Your chiropractor will develop an individualised care plan that may combine more than one type of treatment, depending on your personal needs.
In addition to spinal manipulation, the treatment plan may include mobilisation, stretching and rehabilitative exercises to improve your range of motion.
