Identifying sciatica

Chiropractors are specifically trained to identify and treat sciatica pain in a manner that is both gentle and effective. Sciatica is a form of nerve dysfunction that is also known as peripheral neuropathy. This nerve dysfunction can occur when the sciatic nerve is either compressed or damaged. Initially, massage provides an ideal method of closely assessing your situation and identifying sources of tension within the body.

What is massage therapy?

Essentially, massage therapy involves touch-based treatment and soft tissue rehabilitation. It is an enjoyable, relaxing therapy that loosens the muscles, improves blood flow and can even contribute to faster healing times for muscular injuries. Massage is an essential aspect of a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Different types of massage

As chiropractors, we are trained to apply gentle stretching methods to your body, and we offer a range of massage techniques that can be tailored to treat your sciatic pain most effectively. Deep tissue massage works through applying strong pressure across the grain of the muscle and relieves tension at the deepest muscular levels. Deep tissue massage of the piriformis muscle can particularly help in treating sciatic pain.

Trigger Point Therapy works by applying cycles of pressure and release, while the patient engages in deep breathing. Myofascial Release focuses on the connective tissue called the fascia. Prolonged but gentle pressure is applied to the fascia, and by lengthening them assists in releasing tension.
