Disc Herniation and Sciatica

Disc herniation and sciatica often go hand in hand, creating discomfort and limiting mobility for many individuals. Chiropractors approach these issues by focusing on the spine’s alignment and nerve function. Disc herniation occurs when the outer layer of a spinal disc tears, leading to the inner disc material pressing on nearby nerves. Chiropractic care aims to relieve pressure on the affected disc through spinal adjustments, promoting proper alignment and reducing irritation on the nerves. In cases of sciatica, where pain radiates down the leg due to compression of the sciatic nerve, chiropractors employ targeted adjustments to address the underlying spinal issues contributing to the condition. By enhancing spinal health and function, chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to managing disc herniation and sciatica, often providing relief from pain and promoting overall well-being.
