BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Auto injury chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella announced that his practice, Shadowood Chiropractic Center, has had significant success treating patients for sciatica pain following car accident injuries. The Boca Raton chiropractor regularly treats car accident injury patients for lower back pain and sciatica pain. Sciatica is a nerve pain condition that occurs when a herniated disc in the lumbar spine compresses the sciatic nerve. This compression can trigger a radiating pain sensation along the length of the nerve, traveling from the lower back, buttocks and legs. Dr. DellaBella says chiropractic adjustments are an effective, drug-free treatment option.
Sciatica is a pain condition that can occur after a car accident injury. Boca Raton auto injury chiropractor Dr. Allan DellaBella is working with patients to better manage this pain without the need for medication or surgery. He is also educating patients about the fact that sciatica itself is not a disorder, but the symptom of an underlying injury that needs proper treatment.
“Sciatica can be incredibly painful and needs specialized care to treat,” said Dr. DellaBella. “This is because sciatica itself is not the root problem, but a symptom of a spinal misalignment. Sciatica occurs when a herniated or slipped disc compresses nearby nerves, triggering a radiating or numbing sensation along the length of the nerve. As long as the nerve irritation persists, patients will continue to experience pain.”
The chiropractor says that medication, while effective for temporarily alleviating pain, is not a long-term pain management solution. “Some patients may find temporary relief from medication, but this is not a permanent solution,” said Dr. DellaBella. “The most effective solution is to treat the problem at the source. This is exactly what chiropractic adjustments are designed to do. By restoring correct alignment to the spine, we alleviate the nerve compression and irritation that is triggering a patient’s pain.”
Sciatica pain symptoms include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. This pain occurs when a misalignment in the lumbar spine compresses the sciatic nerve, says Dr. DellaBella. The chiropractor says that sciatica is common for patients after a car accident injury as well as other sports injuries or personal injuries that result in a spinal misalignment.
“Sciatica is not a permanent condition; with correct care, the pain can be managed or even eliminated,” said Dr. DellaBella. “Chiropractic adjustments treat the underlying problem and enhance the quality of life for patients with this difficult condition. My goal is to help every patient return to an active life.”
