Thank you so much Dr. Tapia and Dr. Young. I had sciatica issues for 19 years. After 3 months of treatments the pain went away. This was 7 years ago. The pain never came back. Now I go to maintain my alignment.

NUCCA Chiropractic Treatment: Treat the Source of Sciatica Pain Now

NUCCA Chiropractic care is the most effective and safest form of sciatica treatment and severe lower back pain relief. When patients have a sciatica episode, they report feeling a sharp, shooting pain in their lower back, as well as a dull ache that feels numb or tingly in their leg, foot, or toes. Patients also describe this nerve pain as “pins and needles.” In extreme cases, patients lose bowel and/or bladder control.

When we first meet patients at Intouch Chiropractic, they are often taking over-the-counter or prescription painkillers and muscle relaxants. This is not a long-term solution, as medications don’t cure a biomechanical problem. Additionally, patients share that they have used ice, heat, massage, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and even Epsom salt baths to help relieve their symptoms. Unfortunately, they still have their symptoms. Their quality of life continues to suffer, and a lot of time and energy is spent on managing their pain and symptoms. 

Our doctors have advanced training and provide back pain relief to many sciatica nerve pain sufferers. Patients don’t just get pain relief but also benefit from successful long-term outcomes. NUCCA Chiropractic care treats the cause of sciatica pain to bring you fast and lasting relief.

The Causes of Sciatica

The causes of sciatica vary greatly, and each patient experiences symptoms differently. Some patients feel pain in their buttocks, hamstring area, calf, foot, or all the way down to their toes. The most common causes of sciatica include:

  • Herniated Disc – When disc material is no longer intact, it causes physical and chemical irritation to nearby structures.
  • Bulging Disc – Disc material is still intact, but the disc is bulging and irritating nearby structures.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease – This condition refers to the failure of disc material. It worsens over time and is designated by different phases.
  • Bone Spurs – Extra bone is deposited naturally by your body in an attempt to stabilize your spine, causing painful spurs.
  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis – This condition causes painful spinal canal narrowing in your low back.
  • Spondylolisthesis – This refers to when a vertebra slips forward over an adjacent vertebra causing pain and discomfort.
  • Pregnancy – Your center of gravity shifts day-to-day during the different stages of pregnancy, which can lead to sciatica pain.
  • Muscle Spasms – The muscles of your back or buttocks can spasm painfully due to stress.

No matter the cause of your sciatica pain, our doctors will evaluate your symptoms and recommend a customized treatment solution to help you get rapid and lasting relief from sciatica pain.

Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression: A Lasting Solution for Sciatica Pain

Sciatica and lower back pain patients benefit from DRX9000 non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, as it helps stabilize your spine while treating your spinal discs. This treatment slowly relaxes and stretches your lower back by cycling through distraction and relaxation phases. 

At Intouch Chiropractic in San Diego, our state-of-the-art computerized system is constantly checking and detecting muscle spasms in your body during a treatment. During your session, downward forces of gravity are removed, creating a vacuum effect at the disc level. This vacuum effect promotes the diffusion of oxygen, water, and nutrient-rich fluids from the outside to flow back into your discs. We frequently provide patients with long-term non-surgical relief from sciatica pain with customized combinations of treatments.
