The pain and additional symptoms can be chronic or infrequent and acute. Thankfully, you can get sciatica relief in Boca Raton, from Dr. Della Bella.
Causes of Sciatica and Spinal Disc Problems in Boca Raton
Sciatica can be caused by narrowing of the spinal canal, herniated or bulging discs, degenerative arthritis and spondylolisthesis. If you suspect you have sciatica or spinal disc problems in Boca Raton, we suggest you make an appointment with our chiropractor, Dr. DellaBella. Sciatica pain, numbness, weakness and tingling does not go away on its own, and it must be treated. Otherwise, the pain can become debilitating.
Natural Sciatica Treatment with our Chiropractor in Boca Raton
Our chiropractor in Boca Raton provides natural sciatica treatment with a variety of therapies, including the Diversified Technique, the Sitting Thompson Technique and the Cox Technique. The diversified Technique involves the use of short, quick movements to realign the vertebrae in the back, and it is the most common chiropractic technique available. Patients most often hear popping and cracking during the session.
The Sitting Thomson Technique can also provide sciatica relief Boca Raton. The patient is put on a special chiropractic table that has adjustable panels. During the session, Dr. DellaBella will adjust one or more of these panels by a fraction of an inch. Then, he will apply a short, quick thrust to the area that needs the adjustment. The table will drop, aiding in the adjustment and reducing the amount of force needed to complete the adjustment.
The Cox Flexion Technique is another sciatica treatment in Boca Raton. During this treatment, we use traction to pull the spine slightly and flex it forward, which helps bulging and herniated discs and relieves sciatica pain.
