Sciatica After Car Accident
Trauma from a car accident can injure the sciatic nerve directly or cause muscle strain over the piriformis muscle that runs directly over the sciatic nerve. A protruding or herniated disc from a car accident can also compress and irritate the sciatic nerve. Here at Shadowood Chiropractic Center, our chiropractor is here to alleviate your discomfort from sciatica as a result of a car accident.
The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the human body. It extends from the lower spine down the buttocks to the back of each leg and to the feet. This nerve carries signals for pain and motor control of the back of the thighs, calves and feet. The symptoms of sciatic nerve injury or impingement include numbness, burning and pain, which may radiate from the lower back down to the feet. If a disc ruptures due to a car collision, its inner gel can seep out and push against the sciatic nerve.
Dr. Allen DellaBella of the Shadowood Chiropractic Center is your car accident chiropractor who provides gentle, manual adjustments for sciatic pain after a car accident. Specifically, our Boca Raton chiropractor implements the Cox Technique to eliminate sciatica. This technique allows him to apply just enough pressure to properly realign the spine. Often, patients experience some level of pain relief after the first adjustment, but often a series of adjustments are needed for optimal patient outcome.
Dr. Allen DellaBella takes a holistic approach to healing after a car accident and integrates massage therapy into patients’ treatment plans. There are just too many benefits of deep tissue massage therapy to ignore. Deep tissue massage therapy release trapped tension, reduces inflammation, reduces sciatica pain associated with car accidents and enhances blood circulation to the injured area to accelerate the body’s natural healing process.
