Find Relief From Sciatic Nerve Pain With Our Chiropractor in Palm Beach Gardens, FL

At the Goldberg Wellness and Acupuncture Center, our chiropractor in Palm Beach Gardens FL gets just how frustrating sciatica can be. Dr. Bruce Goldberg has worked with hundreds of local Floridians struggling with signs and symptoms of this common condition—a syndrome which affects up to 40% of people over the course of a lifetime. 

Man suffering from back pain due to sciaticaUnderstanding Sciatica

Sciatica is a syndrome affecting the sciatic nerve. Your sciatic nerves (one on the right and left sides of your body) branch off from your spinal cord and then travel into your legs, branching off into other nerves to supply motor and sensory information to your lower extremities. 

With sciatica, something compresses the nerve root—typically a herniated disc or bulging disc, an injured or a muscle spasm, or perhaps a narrowed or disfigured joint space. Such compression irritates and inflames the nerve and then disrupts the transmission of signals being sent through the sciatic nerve itself.

Signs and Symptoms of Sciatica

The most significant symptom of sciatica is typically severe buttocks or leg pain that often feels shooting, stabbing, or searing. Additionally, you may also notice weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg. Pain may be worse with certain movements or after prolonged sitting or standing.

Additional symptoms may include stiffness and back pain, particularly in the lower back. This condition often occurs in people who have had a history of acute trauma (such as a fall or an auto accident), or in people who perform physically demanding activities frequently. 

How Our Palm Beach Gardens Chiropractor Alleviates Sciatic Nerve Pain

As a Palm Beach Gardens chiropractor, Dr. Goldberg can help you find relief from your sciatic nerve pain using a variety of non-invasive techniques. These include:

  • Spinal decompression, which helps alleviate pressure on the injured nerve (we use a non-invasive approach involving specialized tables and manual traction or gentle "pulling" force)
  • Cold laser therapy, to reduce inflammation and pain
  • Massage therapy, to relieve muscle spasms, increase healing blood flow, and de-stress the mental and physical self
  • Corrective exercises, to restore core stabilization and prevent recurring nerve compression
  • Acupuncture, to trigger biological healing responses including decreased tissue tension
