Chiropractic treatment combined with dry needling can be helpful.
Chiropractic care is considered safe and effective for the treatment of sciatica. Depending on the cause and severity of the sciatica, chiropractic, medical, and/or surgery are the possible treatment options.
The BEST treatment for sciatic nerve pain is the Chiropractic Adjustment! This is a condition that usually does not improve on its own without intervention. Most times it only gets worse. Call to schedule your appointment today. Thanks!
Sciatica is the layman's term for any pain that is being created from your back down into your legs. Many times, there are many other conditions that are causing this pain, like piriformis syndrome hypertonic so as and/or excessive lordosis. All appear to be sciatica, but are not. You will need to come into an office that does evaluation to make a decision of what treatment will be.

There is no ideal treatment for sciatica as there can be many different causes. A thorough medical history, examination, and possibly diagnostic imaging may need to be performed to determine the cause of your sciatic, back, and hip pain. The best treatment would only be able to be determined after the cause is first determined. With that being said I have found in practice that patients who experience similar symptoms do best with a combination of Chiropractic care, therapeutic exercise, and myofascial release.
There are many causes for sciatica. Chiropractic along with physical therapy and perhaps spinal decompression is the best treatment for your condition.
Sciatica is a general term of leg symptoms. The best treatment targets the cause of the symptoms and not the symptom itself. A proper evaluation should help to this end and will guide treatment recommendations including self-help strategies.
The best treatment for sciatica starts with a detailed assessment. Is your sciatica caused from muscle tension, joint degeneration, a disc bulge etc. Once the issue is determined then a treatment plan can be made.
It depends on the cause of it, among alternative treatments chiropractic adjustment and therapeutic exercises are the most effective ones.
Sciatica is a complicated neurological condition. With that said, treatment methods- and success rates- for sciatica vary from profession to profession and case to case.

The best treatment for sciatica can only be determined once your doctor has determined the underlying cause for sciatic nerve irritation. Generally speaking, there are three main anatomical structures known to cause sciatic nerve involvement: bone, muscle and disc. There are others, but these are the most common.

I would recommend starting with an examination by your local Chiropractor to determine if your case could benefit. Often times Chiropractic is gently, quick and effective for Sciatica.

Best of luck to you in your endeavors.
It depends on the cause of the sciatica. It could be from a disc, vertebral subluxation, arthritis, muscle tightness. You need an evaluation to determine the cause. You should be evaluated by a professional that has the capability to treat all those causes such as a chiropractor with a decompression table.
If you’re living with adult scoliosis, you may be surprised to learn that treatments such as chiropractic adjustments and Physical therapy, as well as use of a supportive brace, can help reduce pain, thwart further degradation and increase your quality of life.

Like all other treatments for scoliosis, aside from the corrective brace prescribed to adolescents with scoliosis, chiropractic does not correct, cure or reverse scoliosis. Chiropractic adjustments and therapies help to improve form (therefore, improving function), and increase mobility into the joints. These improvements can decrease pain, increase comfort and improve posture. Chiropractors can also address other symptoms or issues the patient may be experiencing, and help prevent further degeneration of the spine.

Chiropractic is a good starting place
The best treatment for Sciatica depends on what is causing the Sciatica. A Chiropractor will be able to perform tests to locate and treat the cause of pain. I would recommend consulting with your local Chiro for the best course of action for you.
