Sciatica Exercises & Stretches

Since sciatica is exacerbated by bedrest, it is important to keep moving to the best of your ability while dealing with sciatica symptoms. However, physical therapy and sciatica exercises and stretches are more intense workouts focused on the areas surrounding the sciatic nerve, particularly the lower back. What these exercises typically do is strengthen the muscles in the area and increase your tolerance to pain. What they typically don’t do is correct the underlying problem.

Since sciatica is often the result of nerve irritation caused by a misalignment in the spine, performing vigorous exercises for sciatica can increase the chance of further destabilizing the region, increasing your sciatica symptoms. If the root cause is degeneration (discs that protect the vertebrae have thinned and no longer provide that cushion), sciatica exercises can result in bones grinding against each other or trapping (“pinching”) a nerve between them, which also increases sciatica symptoms.

But don’t despair! Your quest for a drug-free alternative to healing your sciatica symptoms is not in vain. Chiropractic naturally and safely alleviates sciatica pain while correcting the underlying cause of sciatica symptoms.

Sciatica Pain Relief: Gentle Chiropractic Care

Chiropractors take a different approach to alleviating symptoms of sciatica by first pinpointing the cause of the pain. When the misalignments are corrected, the pressure on the nerve roots is eliminated, allowing the nerves to heal. And when the nerves aren’t irritated, you can often say goodbye to your sciatic nerve pain!

Chiropractic enjoys an excellent reputation as the leading alternative health care approach in the world, due in no small part to chiropractic’s success with sciatica.

After getting some background information from you and conducting a thorough examination, your chiropractor will let you know if chiropractic can be of benefit in your particular situation. Since there are so many underlying causes of sciatica, a specific course of action will be designed expressly for you. Your doctor will explain this plan and answer any questions you may have. Then very precise, safe adjustments will be delivered to those previously-identified areas.

Although no one can predict any specific results, chiropractic has helped millions of people all over the world find sciatica pain relief. By visiting one of our chiropractors – a highly-educated, licensed health care provider – you can join the growing list of extremely satisfied patients who used to have sciatica!
