Sciatica Treatment for Residents in and Around Palm Harbor, FL

Sciatica can not only cause physical discomfort, it can weigh heavily on your mental health as well. Dealing with unending pain that never seems to get better no matter how many times you bring out the heating pad or try to stretch your lower back is miserable. If your sciatica isn’t improving with at-home treatment, come to Back & Neck Pain Center near Palm Harbor, Florida. Our experienced chiropractor, Dr. Monte Venis, will examine your spine and accompanying nerves, which may include getting imaging scans like X-rays and/or an MRI. He will also recommend a treatment plan to help you get well.

What Is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is the largest in the body; it starts at the lower spine and travels down to the buttocks. There, it breaks off into two separate nerve pathways and continues down each leg until it reaches the feet. Sciatica refers to the pain that can occur anywhere along this pathway, and it’s common for it to happen on one side of the body.

Most often, sciatica occurs when the nerve is irritated, compressed, or inflamed due to a spinal condition like a herniated disc, foraminal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, or spondylolysis. It can also occur in people who are overweight or tall (5’7” or taller for women, 5’11” or taller for men). Occupational causes can also lead to sciatica, such as prolonged sitting, regularly lifting the arms over the shoulder, or carrying heavy loads.

Our Approach to Sciatica Treatment

When you consult with Dr. Venis at Back & Neck Pain Center, he will conduct a thorough evaluation to get to the root of your sciatica. He’s committed to not just solving your immediate symptoms, but also addressing the underlying cause of your pain so you can feel better for good.

  • Cox flexion-distraction method
  • Myofascial release
  • Intersegmental traction
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
  • Heat and cold therapy
