So you've just been diagnosed with Sciatica. What is your next step? Get to the best Fort Worth Chiropractor! Dr. Elliott at Park Hill Chiropractic can tell you the root cause of your sciatica.
Sciatica is a broad term for pain coming from the back and running down the leg. It could be due to a number of reasons. The most common is tight muscles and disc injuries. How do you find out what the root cause is so you can better treat it? A proper Physical Examination by a Doctor of Chiropractic should be performed. Sometimes this will yield inconclusive results and X-rays or an MRI could be needed to determine the cause of your sciatica.
After a proper diagnosis is rendered you should expect to hear a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. This can often be different for everyone but needs to be evidence based. Evidence based care is based upon current research, patient preference and the doctors clinical experience.
Chiropractors are able to help through (CMT) Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy, something no other medical practitioners are trained to do. Many chiropractors often use E-stim, Ultrasound, heat/ice, Instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, therapeutic exercise and intersegmental traction to attain the greatest results for patients.
