Hey everybody, its Dr. Brian here with Beyond Bones and we’re going to talk about sciatica today. Sciatica is the pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve going down to the butt on down to the leg. This is a very, very common problem, unfortunately, and there are many things that can cause it.
Misalignments or Subluxations Can Cause Sciatica
One of those is subluxation, or misalignment in the spine or the bones of the pelvis, causing pressure on the sciatic nerve subluxation is actually a state of increased overall stress in your body stress beyond which level your body can’t handle or manage in a healthy way. That often results in misalignment in the spine or the pelvis, causing pressure on that sciatic nerve, other health problems as well. But in this case, sciatica. That’s why chiropractic adjustments get such excellent results with sciatica is that the adjustment helps to bring the spine back into its normal healthy position, which removes the pressure from the nerves and allows your body to feel better and heal up naturally. So chiropractic acts like a natural sort of sort of a reset switch kind of a circuit breaker where your body’s able to move from a stressed state to a state of more relaxation and peace and ease, it’s able to find its proper positioning and balance, it’s able to work in a in a more healthy, more efficient, more effective way. Which basically means more pain free way for you. In this case.

Now chiropractic adjustments are an excellent way to take care of sciatica in many cases, specifically, those cases which are caused by misalignment in the spine from subluxation. Other things can cause it as well. That’s why we’ll be working to address some of those things here in the practice, as well as having you take care of some things at home on your own. Some stretches and some exercises, some massage kind of things as well. All of those things can be very, very helpful when it comes to sciatica. And the chiropractic adjustment is good as a one off sort of feel good palliative natural pain reliever, but it’s really good when you do it in series when you do a bunch of them one after the other because the healing benefits of the adjustments add up together over time, which in the end ends up changing the way your nervous system works for the long term. It helps you to be more relaxed, less stressed, more pain, free, have more energy, sleep better, all that good stuff. And if we can change the way that your nervous system tends to operate as its default, then those changes, including getting rid of the sciatic pain in the first place. Those ended up lasting for the long term.
