Alleviate the Pain

Find Relief from Sciatic Pain!

Sciatica can be a debilitating condition, causing shooting pain, numbness, and weakness that radiates down your leg. At Stott Chiropractic, we understand the impact sciatica can have on your daily life and offer a safe, effective approach to managing this condition.

Understanding Sciatica

The Painful Path of the Sciatic Nerve

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in your body, becomes irritated or compressed. This irritation can stem from various factors, including:

  1. Herniated Disc

    A bulging or ruptured disc in your lower spine can press on the sciatic nerve, causing pain.

  2. Spinal stenosis

    Narrowing of the spinal canal can put pressure on the nerve roots, including the sciatic nerve.

  3. Muscle strains or inflammation

    Tightness or inflammation in the muscles surrounding the sciatic nerve can irritate it.

  4. Piriformis syndrome

    A small muscle deep in your buttocks can sometimes compress the sciatic nerve.


Finding Relief Beyond Medication & Surgery

How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Sciatica

Traditional treatment for sciatica often involves pain medication or, in severe cases, surgery. However, Stott Chiropractic provides a natural, drug-free alternative that focuses on addressing the root cause of your sciatic pain.

Improved Spinal Alignment

Gentle chiropractic adjustments can restore proper alignment in your lower spine, relieving pressure on the sciatic nerve and reducing pain.

Reduced Inflammation

Chiropractic techniques can help decrease inflammation around the nerve, easing discomfort and promoting healing.

Enhanced Flexibility

Chiropractic care can improve flexibility in your lower back and legs, reducing irritation of the sciatic nerve.

Strengthening Exercises

Specific exercises can strengthen the muscles supporting your spine, improving core stability and reducing the risk of future sciatic episodes.

Beyond Adjustments

A Comprehensive Approach

Chiropractic adjustments are a cornerstone of our treatment approach for sciatica. However, we may also recommend additional therapies to optimise your recovery, such as:

Soft tissue therapy

To relax muscles and improve circulation around the affected area.

Ice or heat therapy

To reduce inflammation and pain.

Stretching and strengthening exercises

To improve flexibility and support your lower back.
