PORTLAND, Ore., May 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Those suffering from sciatica pain can find relief with Portland chiropractic. Dr. Samantha Stuart, DC provides chiropractic care to treat sciatica and back pain for patients in Portland and the surrounding areas. Not only does Dr. Stuart help patients manage sciatica pain, but she provides complementary therapies that can help prevent future pain.
Sciatica is a condition that is characterized by a numbing sensation or radiating pain in the lower body. Many patients who suffer from sciatica will experience pain in the lower back, legs, and buttocks. While some people feel a sharp burning sensation, others feel more of a jolt of electric shock or tingling muscle weakness. Sciatica can be triggered at any time during regular activity, but many people experience these symptoms after sustaining an injury during a car accident or while playing sports.
Chiropractic care can help those suffering from sciatica and back pain manage and relieve their symptoms as well as prevent future pain. Dr. Stuart and her chiropractic staff help patients in the Portland, Gresham, Camas, Happy Valley, Fairview and Troutdale areas, as well as Vancouver, WA residents treat sciatica pain through chiropractic adjustments and complementary therapies.
“Many people who suffer from sciatica pain become very frustrated with the medical treatment options they have as medication only treats the symptoms and provides temporary pain relief,” says Portland chiropractor, Dr. Samantha Stuart, DC. “However, chiropractic care can help you address the root cause of the pain to provide long-term pain relief.”
Dr. Stuart uses two of the most effective chiropractic adjustment techniques for sciatica – the Thompson Technique and Diversified Adjusting. These methods are safe, effective and non-invasive, allowing the doctor to reposition the spine and correct the underlying misalignment that is causing the pain.
As part of an overall approach to health and pain relief, Dr. Samantha Stuart, DC offers complementary therapies in her office, such as therapeutic massage. Though massage therapy does not cure sciatica, many patients find it helpful for treating back pain when muscles start to spasm. Dr. Stuart also educates patients on effective body mechanics to prevent future injuries that can trigger sciatica pain.
