Sciatica Treatment Destination Wellness Center

Many Americans struggle with severe and long-lasting sciatica pain. Prescription drugs might provide short-term relief for sciatica pain, but chiropractic is the better option if you want long-lasting relief. Chiropractic works better for sciatica pain because it gets to the root cause of the pain and corrects it, instead of simply attacking its symptoms. Even better, unlike surgical methods or prescription drugs, chiropractic is non-invasive and does not carry the risk of any serious side effects. 

At Destination Wellness Center in Manalapan, NJ, we are able to help our clients get rid of their sciatica pain through thorough examination and the development and execution of gentle treatment plans that eliminate their pain at its source. Set up an appointment with us to experience sciatica pain relief through chiropractic at our clinic.  

What Is Sciatica?

Whenever there is heavy or undue pressure on your sciatic nerve – likely due to the development of a herniated or bulging disc – a very sharp pain, called sciatica, develops. The sciatic nerve runs down the spine towards the leg. Sciatica pain is usually experienced in one leg and in the lower back. You might also experience sciatica-related pain in your buttocks or hips, and many people with sciatica also report a tingling sensation in the lower leg. 

It can be hard to determine on your own, if you have these symptoms, whether they are stemming from sciatica or some other condition. Chiropractors receive training and are equipped with specialized equipment that enables them to properly diagnose your symptoms. At Destination Wellness Center, we rely on modern technology to help us form accurate diagnoses.

Sciatica Pain Relief with Chiropractic

When you visit Destination Wellness Center and speak to Dr. Richard Allen, after he properly diagnoses your pain and confirms that you are indeed experiencing sciatica, he will develop a personalized treatment plan designed to get rid of your pain. 

It’s likely that this treatment will involve spinal adjustments, which will provide corrective action if bulging or herniated discs are contributing to your pain. In addition to adjustments, your plan might include adjunctive treatments, like massage therapy, acupuncture, therapeutic exercises, and more.
