When any part of this system is compressed it is referred to as a pinched sciatic nerve, and the associated pain is called sciatica. Those who are experiencing sciatica often describe it as a sharp pain or burning sensation that starts in the lower back and radiates down into the legs. They find it difficult to stand, sit or lie down without pain. It may also be accompanied by a tingling sensation, numbness or muscle weakness.
If you are looking for relief from back pain associated with sciatica, our chiropractor has a number of sciatic nerve treatment options available for our patients from the Washington Township area and surrounding communities of Sewell, Turnersville, Williamstown, Blackwood, and Glassboro. Dr. Eulo will first examine you to determine the exact cause of your pain and ask you about any events or lifestyle factors that may be contributing to your pain. If he finds that your pain is related to sciatica he will recommend a whole person approach to treatment.
Our non-invasive treatment regimen might include chiropractic care to help bring your spinal column back into alignment and relieve any pressure caused by a herniated disc. If your pain is related to a spasm in the piriformis muscle, we may recommend therapeutic massage therapy to loosen the muscle and alleviate pressure. If your sciatica is related to a weight issue, Dr. Eulo may recommend our “Take Shape For Life” weight management program to provide relief from back pain. As a chiropractic sports physician, Dr. Eulo can also work with athletes who may need sciatic nerve treatment due to a sports injury.
