If you are struggling with sciatica pain, it’s natural to feel frustrated with conventional treatment options. In a perfect world, taking a pill to magically “cure” your pain sounds like a great solution. In real life, however, that’s not how pain relief works. While medication can temporarily numb your brain’s ability to perceive pain, drugs cannot “cure” your pain. As long as sciatica nerve irritation continues, your pain will persist.
When medication fails to deliver the desired pain relief, patients can feel frustrated, overwhelmed and desperate. Other conventional approaches like back surgery are risky and may make your pain even worse. Is there any hope? Absolutely. Dr. Gehnrich understands your frustrations and can help.
Sciatica Treatment in Rockville Centre is a non-invasive, drug-free approach to sciatica pain relief that targets the root cause of your pain. Rather than relying on drugs to “cover up” pain symptoms, chiropractic care targets the underlying nerve irritation that is triggering your pain. The result: long-lasting pain relief without the need for drugs or surgery.
If you have tried conventional medicine for sciatica pain relief and are unhappy with the results, Dr. Gehnrich can help. Here’s what you need to know about chiropractic care and sciatica:
Surprised? Sciatica itself is not a medical condition but the symptom of an underlying medical condition, such as a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease. For example, if a herniated disc in the lumbar spine compresses the sciatic nerve, you may experience a radiating or numbing sensation along the length of your sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the longest in the lower body, stretching from the lower back, through the buttocks, and down the leg. Numbing, radiating and tingling sensations are common symptoms of sciatic nerve compression.
Imagine this: there’s a glass on the table that keeps leaking water. One solution is to constantly wipe the water off the table. While the table may be dry for a few minutes, as long as the glass continues to leak, the table will become wet again no matter how quickly you wipe up the water. It’s only by identifying and fixing the leak that you’ll stop the table from getting wet. Wiping up the water is not the solution. In fact, the water is a symptom of the real problem! Sciatica is a bit like this. As part of his approach to sciatica treatment, Dr. Gehnrich starts by identifying the root cause of your sciatica pain. He focuses on the physical, chemical and emotional causes of nerve irritation to stop your pain at the source and support whole body health.
