What Causes Sciatica?
The common causes of sciatica include degenerative disc disease, spondylolistheses – when a vertebra slips forward, lumbar spinal stenosis – the thinning of the spinal canal located in your lower back, and pregnancy.
The most helpful treatment for pregnancy sciatica is chiropractic care. Dr. Goodman specializes in treating and managing nerve pain that impacts joints and other areas.

Treating Sciatica Back Pain
Sciatica brings numbness and pain in the lower back and legs; this occurs due to the inflammation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve gets inflamed or irritated because of certain injuries and conditions, including damage to the bones, joints, or ligaments, degenerating discs, and sprained back muscles. It can also be triggered by the muscles in the buttocks putting stress on the nerve traveling down the leg causing sciatica leg pain.
Treating sciatica is majorly dependent on the severity and the original cause of the pain. Dr. Goodman often utilizes a number of sciatica treatments. She builds a care and treatment plan that is personalized for each patient. The plan may include frequent cold and warm compresses and hands-on chiropractic adjustments. She may also suggest you make certain lifestyle changes such as diet and exercise.
Dr. Goodman’s use of manual nerve and muscle manipulation has proven extremely effective in the treatment of this condition. In the hands of Dr. Goodman, chiropractic techniques can provide a much better healing atmosphere than traditional medical methods. At Heart of Texas Chiropractic, we strive to help our patients attain relief from pain and discomfort.
How Long Does the Treatment Last?
The treatment duration is influenced by how severe the condition is and how well your body is responding to treatments. You can expect for the treatment to last for several weeks. If you have a case of chronic sciatica, then it may take longer. Most patients have recurring treatments for a number of weeks and more appointments as flare-ups happen. If Dr. Goodman has included some lifestyle changes as part of your treatment, then those can go on for the foreseeable future.
You can also anticipate your treatment plan to change depending on your condition and how you’re responding to the care plan. As your pain lessens, different chiropractic adjustments will make your body improve faster. We will work with you as you go through this treatment to help you get healthy and stronger.
Schedule a Consultation
If the pain and discomfort associated with this condition are having a significant impact on your regular day-to-day activities, then you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Goodman at Heart of Texas Chiropractic. Dr. Goodman and her staff manage their practice on the belief that personal wellness should be attainable by everyone.
Before we recommend any treatment plan, our diagnosis will begin by performing a thorough review of your symptoms, discuss your medical history, and conduct a physical examination to uncover the cause of your pain. Depending on the cause, Dr. Goodman will propose a personalized care and treatment plan for you. This plan may consist of spinal adjustments to lessen your discomfort and get your range of motion better. Dr. Goodman’s chiropractic techniques put the spine back to its proper alignment – which will then release the compressed sciatic nerve. Dr. Goodman may also recommend focused exercise plans for her sciatica patients to improve strength and prevent flare-ups.
