Doctors of Chiropractic (or Chiropractic Physicians) manage sciatica very regularly. Sciatica is defined by pain that originates in the low back or buttock that travels into one or both legs. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity and frequency; minimal, moderate, severe and occasional, intermittent, frequent or constant.
The following at home sciatica stretches are the most recommended for symptomatic people. Stretching is important for any person’s overall good health. However, for people with moderate or severe sciatica nerve pain, we recommend an SF chiropractor’s assessment first.
Sciatica specialist Supreet Shah says that sciatica pain can occur for a variety of reasons. He states, “Identifying what doesn’t move is the first step toward solving the problem.” Often, the most problematic body parts are the lower back and hips.
