If you have pain due to sciatica, the discomfort can limit your mobility and lower your quality of life. Along with that, the condition can become chronic if it is not treated on time. At Ballston Chiropractic and Acupuncture in Arlington, VA, we offer a variety of treatments to reduce your pain and help you heal. Before scheduling your appointment, learn about some causes of sciatica below:


What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed. As a result, you may experience pain that originates in the lower back and travels to the buttocks and legs. In addition, you might have symptoms that worsen when sitting or when you cough.

Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can develop from a variety of causes. Some of these causes include:

  • Herniated disc
  • Slipped disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Pregnancy
  • Obesity
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Sports injury or auto accident injury
  • Prolonged hours of sitting

Chiropractic Care for Sciatica

Chiropractic care can be highly effective for sciatica. With spinal adjustments, our chiropractors can help take pressure off of the sciatic nerve and reduce the severity of the pain. This treatment also helps correct any misalignments in the body and improve overall functionality. Massage therapy can be used as well, which reduces inflammation and swelling that are affecting the sciatic nerve. Before providing treatment, our chiropractors will conduct a comprehensive assessment to learn more about your condition. Once we identify the root cause of your pain, we can create a personalized treatment plan for you.
