Sciatica Nerve Pain Treatment in Fort Worth & Irving, TX
A top concern for many patients who come to our clinic is sciatic nerve pain. Sciatica occurs when a herniated disk or bone spur compresses part of the sciatic nerve located in the spine. This compression causes inflammation, sharp pain, tingling sensations in the body, and often numbness to your lower back and legs.
The Sciatic Nerve
The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest single nerve in your body. It runs from the base of your spine to down through the pelvic area. It is responsible for supplying electrical singles to the lower half of your body.
When the sciatic nerve becomes pinched or inflamed, patients often experience debilitating symptoms such as the inability to walk or stand without severe pain.
The main cause of a sciatic injury includes poor posture, a sports injury such as an improper golf swing, lifting a heavy object, or injury during a slip and fall.
Therapy & Treatments for Sciatica
Our doctors have experience successfully treating patients with sciatica without surgery.
Depending on your diagnosis, the spinal experts at Atlas Medical Center will develop a treatment plan specific to your pain. We offer spinal manipulation, spinal adjustment, manual therapy, or various therapy modalities to improve joint motion and soft tissue health. Additional spinal manipulation therapy techniques are:
- Spinal decompression
- Instrument-assisted manipulation
- Trigger point massage therapy
- Manual joint stretching and resistance techniques
- Instrument-assisted soft tissue therapy
- Electrical muscle stimulation
During the course of treatment, if the doctor finds that therapy is not healing your sciatic pain, Atlas Medical Center may refer you to a pain management specialist. As a last resort, surgery is only considered if there is evidence of a more serious problem.
