What are the Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Symptoms of sciatic nerve pain, also known as sciatica, are incredibly painful. Pain tends to shoot all the way from the upper thighs, down into the feet. The Mayo Clinic defines sciatica as, “pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica only affects one side of your body.”


Symptoms of Sciatica

For most patients at Cool Springs Chiropractic, sciatic pain starts in the lower part of the spine, and tends to come and go. Because of this, many people choose to ignore it. Unfortunately, the longer this pain is ignored, the worse it can get! Those who have experienced sciatic nerve pain know just how terrible it can be. It often flares up due to a herniated disc, subluxation, or other compression that presses on the sciatic nerve. This compression leads to horrible pain, inflammation, and sometimes even numbness.

If you have experienced any of the symptoms above, it is time to contact Cool Springs Chiropractic today. Let Dr. Hinz and his amazing staff help you correct your sciatic nerve pain before it gets worse. Remember, often this pain comes and goes, and just because you are not experiencing it currently, does not mean there is not an issue. Let Dr. Hinz help you correct your sciatica before it returns!


Chiropractic Care Can Help Treat Sciatic Nerve Pain

Those who have experienced sciatic nerve pain can tell you just how horrible it can be. No one should have to live with it! Over the counter and prescription medications may mask the pain, but they do not treat sciatic nerve pain at its source. Chiropractic care seeks to correct the source of sciatic nerve pain, so that it doesn’t rear its ugly head again.

Sciatic nerve pain is often caused by a subluxation, or misalignment, within the spine. These vertebral misalignments can cause pain, loss of mobility, poor sleep, and so much more than just sciatica. Luckily, Dr. Hinz is an expert at identifying subluxations in the spine, and correcting them through chiropractic care. Chiropractic adjustments often bring quick pain relief and healing for those suffering from sciatic nerve pain. Dr. Hinz will use manual adjustments, as well as a variety of other techniques, in order to treat sciatica.

Chiropractic adjustments treat sciatic nerve pain in several ways:

  • Realigning the spine
  • Relieving pressure from the sciatic nerve
  • Increasing mobility
  • Improving nerve function throughout the body
  • Treating sciatica at its source, not just masking its symptoms

Sciatic nerve pain is a serious condition. Do not let it go untreated. Dr. Hinz at Cool Springs Chiropractic, located in Franklin, Tennessee can help. Contact Cool Springs Chiropractic today!

What are the Benefits of Chiropractic?

Chiropractic care is a safe, holistic, and effective way to treat many of life’s common ailments. Its emphasis goes far beyond treating back pain. Chiropractic care treats the entire body. The central nervous system is housed within the spine. This system controls every single cell within the body. When the spine becomes misaligned, the central nervous system’s home is messed up, making it impossible for the CNS to function as it should. These malfunctions lead to back pain, headaches, neck pain, poor range of motion, low energy levels, trouble sleeping, anxiety, and so much more.

By correcting these subluxations, Dr. Hinz restores the spine to its proper shape, and allows the central nervous system to do its job of running the body. It’s remarkable just how powerful the spine is!

Chiropractic treats pain at its source. Over the counter and prescription medications only treat the symptoms. Unfortunately, these medications often come with a long list of nasty side effects as well. By ignoring the source of the pain, these medications just leave room for conditions to worsen as well. Chiropractic treats symptoms by identifying the cause and correcting it. In fact, research has shown that those who use doctors of chiropractic as their primary wellness doctors have fewer doctors’ visits and hospital stays than those who don’t!

Other benefits of chiropractic care include, but are not limited to:

  • Increased energy
  • Improved range of motion
  • Great posture
  • Reduced anxiety levels
  • Boosted immunity
  • Deeper sleep
  • Improved athletic performance
  • Decreased recovery times
  • Fewer and less severe headaches

Dr. Hinz uses a variety of techniques in his office in order to treat patients. He believes that chiropractic care is not a one size fits all approach, and that patients should be treated with individualized plans. At Cool Springs Chiropractic, patients are treated like family.
