To be successful in a sciatic procedure you need to know first of all what triggered the sciatica. Sciatica Discomfort also known as Sciatica has multiple causes.
- Herniated or bulging disc
This happens when the soft tissue (invertebral disc) between the spinal column bones ( vertebrae) gets weakened and begins to protrude to one side. This soft tissue prevents mutual grinding of the vertebral discs. The protrusion will place pain-causing pressure on the sciatic nerve. In this situation the chiropractor may use low force methods to provide relief. Even the invertabral disc may tear and the fluid inside this disc can leak. The fluid that leaked will irritate the sciatic nerve, causing much unnecessary pain. Clearly no chiropractic therapy can aid in this situation.
- Spinal lumbar stenosis
It is called Lumbar Spinal Stenosis when the channels through which the sciatic nerve is located narrows. Narrowing can happen for a variety of reasons. Osteoporosis may be a source of narrowness. In this case chiropractic therapy may do more harm than good. Like most other cases of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis, using chiropractic care to alleviate pain would be reasonably effective.
This disorder happens when alignment of the vertebrae (bones in the spine) falls out. This slip can trigger sciatic nerve pressure. If this slip is caused by bone degeneration (arthritis) or bone fracture so chiropractic treatment is not recommended. Chiropractic therapy in most other cases may have a beneficial effect on your sciatic pain.
The diagnosis will be when the sciatic nerve is weakened or squeezed due to trauma from an accident or sport injury. For example, a car accident could damage the sciatica nerve itself. Another example could be that a crack in the bone could protrude and place pressure on the sciatic nerve. In certain cases chiropractic therapy can aid in this case.
- Syndrome Piriformis
The muscle priformis is responsible for lifting the upper legs. It is located on the buttock. Next to this muscle moves the sciatic nerve, down the leg. In some cases the piriformis muscle moves along the sciatic nerve. When the piriformis muscle is damaged or swollen for whatever cause it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, causing the usual sciatic symptoms. Patients usually respond to chiropractic treatment very positively.
