What is a Chiropractor?June 19, 2018
Common treatments of sciatica include taking pain medication or undergoing surgery.
However, there are other alternatives that are far more effective than these treatments. Chiropractic care for sciatica is one of the methods of treating the pain without undergoing surgery. If you happen to be in Washington, you can approach Tacoma Chiropractors to help you manage your pain.
We use the Chiropractic adjustment because it has proven effective in retraining the injured joints to move and function.
You see, whenever you injure a joint, especially in the spine, the muscles surrounding that joint will lock down and stop the joint from moving in attempt to protect it from further injury.
If the joint stays locked up without movement for too long, then the disc at that joint will begin dehydrating and withering away.
Movement in the body, both broadly and at the joint level are important for good health.
If there is no movement, then the joint decays and chronic symptoms occur, including the pinched nerve and slipped disc issues.
