Gentle Care for Sciatica in Newstead, Brisbane

woman with lower back painSciatica is a common condition that affects many, causing pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which extends from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body and can vary widely in intensity from a mild ache to severe discomfort.

At Newstead Chiropractic, we’re proud to help many patients overcome sciatica naturally with gentle, focused chiropractic care.

Who Does Sciatica Affect?

While anyone can experience sciatica, it most frequently occurs in adults in their 40s and 50s. It often develops as a result of nerve compression brought on by issues like a herniated disc, bone spur, or the narrowing of the spine known as spinal stenosis.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica

The hallmark symptom of sciatica is a pain that originates in the spine and travels down the back of the leg. This pain can feel like a bad leg cramp that lasts for days. You might also experience sensations such as burning, tingling, or pins-and-needles in the leg. In severe cases, it can lead to numbness and muscular weakness in the affected leg and foot, making it difficult to move or even stand.

How Chiropractic Can Help: The ABC Technique

Chiropractic care is a safe and effective way to manage and reduce the pain caused by sciatica. The ABC (Advanced Biostructural Correction) Technique is particularly beneficial. This approach focuses on correcting your structural alignment, effectively taking pressure off the muscles, ligaments, discs, and nerves in your back. By addressing these key areas, chiropractic care can help alleviate the direct pressure that contributes to sciatic pain, allowing your body to heal naturally.
