Get Effective Treatment for
Sciatica Pain in San Diego

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. Your sciatic nerve begins in your lower back and branches off into your hip, buttock, leg, foot, and toes on both the right and left sides of your body. Pressure on the sciatic nerve due to a herniated disc, bulging disc, bone spur, or spinal stenosis causes pain. The pain typically occurs only on one side of your body and is often worsened by sitting, standing, walking, and bending your back forward or backward – and that affects the most basic everyday activities.

Sciatica symptoms can be affected by coughing, sneezing, laughing, or straining. Usually, a herniated or bulging disc in your low back is to blame for your sciatica symptoms. In addition to pain, patients report tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. It is not uncommon for a patient to have pain in one area and numbness in another area of the path of the sciatic nerve. If you relate to these symptoms, you are in the right place.

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 sciatica relief in San Diego. Patients also benefit from successful long-term outcomes. NUCCA Chiropractic care treats the cause of sciatica pain to bring you fast and lasting relief.

A Lasting Solution for
Sciatica Pain in San Diego

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, 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.

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 in San Diego, our doctors will evaluate your symptoms and recommend a customized treatment solution to help you get rapid and lasting relief from sciatica pain.

What to Expect During Your

San Diego Sciatica Treatment Consultation

The information you provide during your consultation helps our doctors figure out if you are a candidate for care in our clinic. If you begin treatment with Intouch Chiropractic, you can expect to rapidly observe improved mobility, decreased pain, decreased tingling and numbness in your leg, increased muscle strength, and a better quality of life. Our goal is to provide a long-term solution to your sciatica instead of just treating your symptoms. Our doctors want to empower you to take action to help you prevent future spinal decay.

Please bring radiographs and MRI images, as well as reports from other providers, to your consultation for our doctors to review. This is important, as it helps us put together all the pieces of your health puzzle. We have helped hundreds of patients that have tried and failed other treatments such as pain medications, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, massage, and cortisone injections.

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.
