The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to realize the body's potential of self-healing.
It is based on the scientific principle that pain, reduced function and performance will result from restriceted spinal movement.
More importantly, chiropractic care is non-surgical and drug-free.
The type of chiropractic therapy applied depends on the cause of the patient's sciatica.
A sciatic treatment plan may include different treatments such as：
Chiropractic's limitations in treating sciatica
- ice/cold therapies
- TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)
- spinal adjustments/manipulation
Other disorders beyond the scope of chiropractic practice can also cause sciatica.
If the doctor of chiropractic determines the patient's disorder requires another type of doctor for treatment, then the patient should transfer to another specialty.
In some situations, the referring chiropractor may keep on treating the patient and co-manage the patient's care with the other specialist.
Please consult a doctor if necessary.
