Many patients will visit a healthcare professional after experiencing low back pain and a variety of other symptoms where they will then find out through a proper diagnosis that they have sciatica, or sciatic nerve pain, due to another health issue, such as a spinal misalignment or a herniated disc. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to treat low back pain, sciatica, and other well-known health issues frequently associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous system. The careful and gentle manual manipulations that a doctor of chiropractic utilizes can help realign an individual’s spine to relieve their painful symptoms. Chiropractors can also use several other treatment options together with the spinal adjustments to give patients the relief they deserve, including ice/cold therapy, ultrasound, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, otherwise known as a TENS unit. If a person’s sciatic nerve pain, or sciatica, is caused by excess weight or obesity, the doctor of chiropractic can also recommend diet and lifestyle modifications to help promote weight loss and overall well-being. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve found inside the human body. It ultimately helps connect the nerves in the legs and feet to the nerves of the rest of the body through the central nervous system, also known as the CNS. According to many healthcare professionals and researchers alike, several varieties of health issues, including a spinal misalignment, also known as a subluxation, or a herniated disc, as well as various other health issues that affect any region of the human body near the sciatic nerve, can cause inflammation that will eventually compress the sciatic nerve, causing a health issue that is best known as sciatica or sciatic nerve pain. Sciatica, or best referred to as sciatic nerve pain, is a collection of various symptoms instead of one variety of health issues. Sciatic nerve pain, or sciatica, is characterized by pain and discomfort, tingling sensations, and numbness as well as other common symptoms. The video above discusses the relief that patient Edgar M. Reyes experienced after visiting Dr. Alex Jimenez, a chiropractor in El Paso, TX, to ultimately help treat his sciatica or sciatic nerve pain, among other musculoskeletal and nervous system problems.
[00:00:20] Edgar M.Reyes. I work for the city of El Paso in the airport, taking care of the runways in Texas. One of my wife’s friends recommended over and over how good he was. So I gave it a shot. I have really bad sciatica and it was killing me. I couldn’t walk. But he’s been helping me out. I can walk down. Maybe like three years. The last six months really bad. Oh, yeah. I couldn’t even walk as I said. I couldn’t walk more than 20, 25 yards. It was really affecting me. I had to get some help. It really gives me hope. Man, I can’t say enough about Dr. Jimenez. I mean, he’s been helping me out. I can walk.
