Sciatica Pain Relief with Massage, Acupuncture and Chiropractic Treatment

sciatica pain LongmontIt is not hard to diagnose sciatica because the symptoms are very specific and pronounced. Sciatica is characterized by pain in one buttock and/or leg that is often described as a searing sharp or radiating pain with restricted mobility in the affected leg. Sciatica is actually a symptom of an underlying condition that the professional staff at the Cafe of Life in Longmont can help treat and thereby relieve sciatica pain with alternative therapies.

Alternative Treatments for Relieving Sciatica Pain

  • Massage: There are many benefits of massage therapy that can also help with sciatica such as muscle relaxation, increased circulation and endorphin release. Neuromuscular massage therapy, or trigger point myotherapy, applies consistent pressure to a muscle spasm area in order to release stored lactic acid and restart proper blood flow.
  • Acupuncture: Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and recognized by the National Institutes of Health as an effective method in decreasing back pain, including sciatica pain. Acupuncture uses extremely-thin needles inserted near the problem area to open blocked energy pathways and restore well-being.
  • Chiropractic: Since the sciatic nerve runs along the spine, any misalignment or bulging disc can put pressure on it and cause shooting pain. Adjustments to put the spine back into proper alignment should stop any irritation to the nerve.

Did you know the sciatic nerve is the largest in the body? And it is comprised of nerve roots stemming from each level of the lower spinal column? Since this is such a massive and widespread nerve, it makes sense that it has the potential to cause debilitating pain- don’t let that happen to you! If you are experiencing any sciatica symptoms, such as intense leg pain, numbness or weakness, come to the expert chiropractor, massage therapist and acupuncturist at the Cafe of Life in Longmont for relief of sciatica pain.

How Can a Chiropractor Help Your Golf Game?

golf chiropractor LongmontAlthough many golfers might believe that better equipment makes the most difference in their game, research has shown that a person’s conditioning and fitness level matters more. The extreme motion of the golf swing can also lead to injury if one is not in ideal shape. If you are suffering from a golf injury, or just want to improve your performance, Dr. Jess, the chiropractor at the Cafe of Life in Longmont, offers specialized treatment that can help.

In an article titled ‘Chiropractic and Golf‘ published by the American Chiropractic Association in January of 2016, the author states, “An extreme amount of compressive force – up to 10 times a person’s body weight – is exerted on the spine during the golf swing. Every joint involved in the swing is taken through its maximum range. If the body is not properly prepared to handle these forces, injury will eventually result.” Common complaints for golfers are elbow hyperextension and wrist injuries, as well as back, neck, shoulder and hip pain.

Chiropractic care will greatly reduce the chance of injury from repetitive swings and can also help improve your golf game by working on a patient’s stability, flexibility and joint mobility. The Physician’s Golf Injury Desk Reference, written by Jeff Blanchard, DC and pro golfer, outlines 14 areas of the body that are used during the golf swing and therefore susceptible to injury. Dr. Jess at the Cafe of Life in Longmont will evaluate patients who golf for flexibility and strength in potential problem areas and, if needed, develop a treatment plan involving in-office care as well as stabilizing and strengthening exercises to do at home. The goal is to maintain symmetrical posture in order to execute efficient motions that will not cause too much stress on joints during the golf swing.
