Sciatica Care from Our Chiropractor in Tempe

Get Chiropractic Treatment for any pain you're experiencing with Sciatica. This can be pain from the lower back to the upper thighs.

At Coyote Chiropractic and Wellness Center, our chiropractor in Tempe serves the surrounding communities with the highest standard of care. We understand first-hand just how important your spinal health can be when it comes to your overall health and wellness. That’s why our chiropractic center in Tempe uses a holistic approach to optimize spinal health right here in our office.

We also treat a number of common spinal conditions, with sciatica being among the most commonly seen in our office.

What is Sciatica?

This refers to a painful spinal condition where the large sciatic nerve (which runs through the lower back and into the upper thighs) becomes compressed, usually by a herniated disc or other parts of the spine. Sciatica can be caused by a one-time injury, or it can be brought on by repetitive strain on the back.

This compression of the sciatic nerve can be very uncomfortable and downright painful. Some people will experience the worst of their lower back pain while standing, while others may notice it primarily while sitting.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica

While lower back pain is the most common symptoms of sciatica, it is not the only type of pain being reported. Often times, patients will report additional symptoms of sciatica that include:

  • Numbness and tingling
  • Hip and leg pain
  • Headaches and/or migraines

If you're suffering from any symptoms of sciatica, the best thing you can do for yourself is to schedule a consultation with our Tempe chiropractor.

How Our Tempe Chiropractor Can Help

Our Tempe chiropractor will perform a physical evaluation and discuss your symptoms with you. If needed, we will also perform any diagnostic tests necessary to reach an accurate diagnosis.

If you do end up being diagnosed with sciatica, the good news is that there are many treatment options available. Chiropractic care is ideal for treating sciatica because it treats the pain directly at the source rather than simply covering it up with pain medications. Furthermore, chiropractic treatment methods are holistic, non-invasive, and drug-free. As a result, you can avoid the risks and potential complications that come along with many other forms of treatment.

Your sciatica treatment plan will be custom tailored based on your unique needs and lifestyle. However, our chiropractor often recommends spinal decompression therapy for sciatica patients, especially for those whose sciatica may be caused by vertebrae compression and herniated/bulging discs. Spinal decompression creates negative pressure along the spinal column to relieve tension on the sciatic nerve and treat herniated/bulging discs.

Spinal adjustment, a manual treatment that corrects alignment issues in the spine, is also an effective treatment for sciatica.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Coyote Chiropractic and Wellness Center, P.C. is the best at what they do and make you feel right at home."
    John Tempe, AZ
  • "My medical doctor referred me to Dr. Gross for headaches that did not respond to traditional medical care (medicine and PT). He found that a neck problem was causing my headaches. After some treatment, I felt much better and come in for periodic care to prevent the problems from coming back."
    Tony V.
  • "I had lower back pain and numbness in my legs after the recent birth of my son. After treatment, the numbness is gone and I have no lower back pain. They have a professional office staff; great doctors and therapists; and it was an overall fantastic experience. I would recommend the office to friends."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
