Struggling with Sciatica?

our chiropractic clinic helps sciatica pain

Emergency room doctors say that sciatica is one of the most common things they encounter each year. Millions of people in America will suffer with the pain of sciatica and many never achieve a long-term solution. Their problem continues to worsen because they have not received the correct treatment. This article from our Iowa City chiropractic clinic will help you to understand the ins and outs of this condition, and what you can do to overcome it.

Many people wonder what sciatica feels like? Patients often describe the pain of sciatica as a slight discomfort to the most extreme unbearable pain. Sciatic pain can show up in different areas of the leg and foot, and many times the pain will come and go. Over years, people tend to go through periods of pain that typically intensify as the problem goes unchecked.


Sciatica in Iowa City

The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the areas that a sciatic issue will start from. This area of the spine is very complicated and it can be difficult to locate the problem. Our team will be able to work with you to zero in on the source. From there they will need to work with you to improve the position of the spine and discs.

Some patients say that all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper and they were hit with extreme pain. They don’t understand how an easy task caused them so much pain? The reality is that their condition was probably developing over years of time, that piece of paper just happened to be the last straw. Most spinal problems don’t happen overnight, they build up over years of time.


How Long Does it Take to Correct Sciatica?

Treatment length can vary significantly from patient to patient. Some people respond very quickly while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of the disc or the joints that we have to correct. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took to create it.

In the US the amount of people that end up with back surgery is staggering, and the low success rate is disappointing. It’s estimated that back surgery is only about 15% effective within a five year period of time. That’s simply not good enough for you.
