NUCCA Chiropractic for Sciatica

sciatica

We know that many people in Northbrook, IL suffer from sciatic pain with no long-term solution. Often people just wait until the pain stops, but in the end, this can worsen the condition.

This type of pain is different with each patient. The pain can range from a mild to severe. The pain normally starts in just one leg and continues to move from the lower back down to the foot. This condition can worsen with more pain as time goes by.

Sciatic Nerve

This nerve starts in the location of the spinal cord passing through the sacrum, the lower part of the back, and then on to the hip traveling down the leg. With the spine being multifaceted and the nerve being of a larger size it is easy for problems to develop. Physicians trained in NUCCA chiropractic care are known to take care of this issue. Your physician will request an exam to locate the misalignment that is the contributing problem for the sciatica condition. A complete health history will also help our doctor zero in on the cause of the problem.

Correcting Sciatica

The amount of time necessary to correct sciatica rests on different factors such as:

  • Your age
  • Body shape
  • Compliance
  • Level of activity

One important factor is the time fame that the condition has been present. When a condition is untreated for a long time it can get worse. It will therefore will take longer to correct. Patients are often shocked by how they start feeling better in such a short amount of time.

Surgery for Sciatica

Many people decide on medication as the first method for recovery, but the pain medication may not be able to take the pain away and that leaves surgery as the only other option. About 50% of people having surgery on their back have not been cured, and around 20% need to have more back surgery. An expert of the spine stated 25% of people that have back issues truly need surgery.

"Dr. Bloom is exceptional! After a Nucca adjustment the pain in my low back disappears and I feel straighter more balanced! It’s still amazing to me how the atlas adjustment helps my entire body!" 
- Cathy S., Evanston, IL

"Before seeing Dr. Bloom, it seems like I was always in pain. I’ve been seeing Dr. Bloom for about 2 months now and am extremely grateful for how much she has helped my neck and low back. I’m able to do the things I want to do and get away with it! I feel well again!"
