Sciatica Pain Treatment and Care in Boston, MA

Understanding Sciatica and Chiropractic Care

Sciatica is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, or weakness in the buttocks and legs. The condition affects millions of people worldwide, and many find relief through chiropractic care. Dr. Quigley has been successfully working with these cases in his Boston office for over 33 years.

What Is It?

Sciatica is caused by a pinched or irritated sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back through the hips, buttocks, and down each leg. The nerve can become compressed for a variety of reasons, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, muscle spasms or degenerative disc disease.

Symptoms of sciatica include pain that radiates from the lower back down the leg, tingling or numbness in the leg or foot, and muscle weakness in the affected leg.

In our Boston practice, we help sciatica patients through non-invasive and drug-free methods. Chiropractic care for sciatica typically involves adjustments, which may help to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve and reduce inflammation in the affected area.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may also recommend other complementary therapies to help alleviate symptoms and prevent future flare-ups. These may include non-surgical spinal decompression that address disc herniations and bulges, cold laser to increase circulation, decrease inlammation and pain and speed healing, exercises to improve flexibility and strengthen the muscles that support the lower back, as well as lifestyle modifications like weight loss, improved posture, and stress reduction techniques.
