The pain of sciatica can be debilitating. When your lower back hurts even when you sit, stand and sleep, you want relief. Sciatica also interferes with leg function as it can create leg pain, leg weakness and leg numbness. Our Fairfax VA chiropractor has sciatica treatment options. At Circle Chiropractic Center, we address your sciatica to provide you with immediate and lasting relief.
Our Fairfax chiropractor, Dr. Frey, evaluates your condition to determine why your sciatic nerve is acting up. His goal is to eliminate the cause of your sciatica, not just treat the symptoms. We offer a drug-free approach to your sciatica so that your condition is alleviated, not just covered up. Our friendly staff will assist you throughout your sciatica treatments and guide you in the right direction to reduce sciatica from happening again.
Circle Chiropractic Center provides a variety of treatment approaches to reduce your sciatica. First, we examine your lower back and may use x-rays to give us a better understanding of your spinal position and how that is affecting your sciatic nerve. If the nerve is being compressed due to a subluxation, which is a vertebrae out of alignment, Dr Frey will adjust your spine to alleviate the compression. Other causes for sciatica include:
a decrease in the spinal canal from which the sciatic nerve exits the spinal column
disc herniation in which the cushiony fluid leaks out of its designated area and slides into the area where the sciatic nerve is located
degenerative disc disease in which the shock-absorbing discs between the vertebrae begin to weaken
Spondylolisthesis which is a fracture in your back that causes a shift of the vertebrae
Our Fairfax chiropractor, Dr. Christopher Frey, addresses these causes and more to reduce your sciatic nerve pain. The goal is to decrease the pressure from the sciatic nerve so that the pain signal stops and your mobility improves. Circle Chiropractic Center uses a variety of techniques to achieve this. Some of our services for sciatica include:
chiropractic adjustments to position your spine correctly
acupuncture to eliminate pain and enhance energy flow
laser therapy to stimulate healing at the cellular level
spinal decompression to create a larger space between your vertebrae and lessen the tension on the sciatic nerve
massage therapy to eliminate tight muscles in your lower back and legs and speed healing
corrective exercises to support a stronger core and correct spinal positioning
Our services are personally chosen to fit your needs and reduce your discomfort. We want you to be free of sciatic pain and give your body the increased mobility and energy that it deserves. Sciatica varies between individuals but if you have one or more of the above symptoms, please speak with our chiropractor to determine the source of your discomfort. Then, let us show you how we overcome it. Sciatica does not have to interfere with your daily life. Please contact us today at 703-385-2990.
