Sciatica Treatment: Get Expert Care From Our Fairfax Chiropractor

If you have pain that travels from the lower back, down through the back of your leg (usually just one leg), you may have a condition called sciatica. Some people associate sciatica, mistakenly, as lower back pain only. In fact, many people actually suffer more with leg pain or buttocks pain, which may even extend into the foot and toes. Chiropractic care is extremely effective at eliminating sciatica pain, without the need for medication or invasive procedures.

The natural aspect and the targeted effectiveness of chiropractic treatment for sciatica are just some of its advantages. When you visit Dr. Christopher Frey, DC, at our local chiropractor's office, you receive treatment from a true expert in chiropractic care. The experienced doctor of chiropractic has been in practice for more than three decades and maintains certification as a Chiropractic Rehabilitation Doctor. 

Learn the Cause of your Sciatica from Your Fairfax Chiropractor

Your chiropractor in Fairfax will perform a thorough exam and testing to pinpoint the cause of your sciatic pain. Common causes of sciatica back pain include spinal canal narrowing (spinal stenosis), herniated disc (where fluid leaks and discs bulge, crowding your sciatic nerve) or other causes. 

Sciatica Treatment Options

After diagnosing the source of your sciatica, a specific treatment plan is designed to fit your needs. Treatment may include:

  • Massage:

    Proper massage treatment relaxes the muscles and encourages circulation, bringing needed nutrients and oxygen to the area.
  • Chiropractic adjustment:

    Restores the alignment of the spine and extremities to help eliminate pain and help prevent future injury.
  • Acupuncture:

    This effective alternative treatment can accompany other methods to manage pain by releasing the body’s natural analgesic capabilities.
  • Cold laser treatment:

    Speeds cellular healing.
  • Spinal decompression:

    Relieves sciatic nerve pressure by stretching the spine.
  • Special strengthening exercises:

    Builds up the core muscles surrounding your spine.
