Finding Lasting Relief from Sciatica: Chiropractic Treatments in Vancouver

Why choose painPRO’s Chiropractic Treatments for Sciatica in Vancouver?

Finding Lasting Relief from Sciatica: Chiropractic Treatments in Vancouver offered by painPRO Clinics team of healthcare professionals. Read below to see how we might be able to support you with relieving your Sciatica.


The commonly used term “sciatica” encompasses any lower back pain condition where the nerves coming from the spinal cord start to exit or as they travel through the muscles and various structures to the back of the hip, down the back of the thigh into the front and back of the lower leg all the way to the foot. Typically, leg or glute pain is worse than the lower back pain experienced in this condition. 


Think of the sciatic nerve as a large electrical cable. 

  1. Size – the sciatic nerve is long and is the thickest nerve in the body from our lower back to the tip of our toes 
  2. Energetic flow – just like electrical cables, the sciatic nerve carries impulses and messages from the skin and to the muscles to account for functional movements, sensation, balance and more 
  3. Insulation – the outer part of electrical cables cover the wires to ensure a proper and consistent signal just like the sciatic nerve is coated in materials and protected by connective tissue, winds in and out of muscles to ensure strong and continued communication within the body 
  4. Strong yet vulnerable  – Damage to a cable by external like wire cutters, knots or kinks long-term usage or wear and tear can be compared to the sciatic nerve as well. There may be temporary injury, compression, pinching or internal factors that change the signal capabilities which translate to tingling or numbness, muscular weakness, increased or decreased limb reflexes. 


This simplified analogy to conceptualize symptoms, shows us that more than one reason may be causing symptoms, which means an individualized plan of management is needed. 


To find lasting relief from sciatica, you need an electrician to find the problem with your electrical cable, just like you need a chiropractor to find the root cause of the symptoms that you are experiencing. 


Other clinical names or diagnoses that are used to describe sciatic nerve irritation or “sciatica”

Chiropractic Treatments for Sciatica 


Options provided in the chiropractor’s office will depend on the presententing sciatica symptoms. Some options typically given include: 


  • Chiropractic joint mobilization and/or manipulation 
  • Soft tissue care: local vibration therapy, instrument-assisted, manual release or active release therapy (MRT/ART) 
  • Modifications in activity 
  • Symptom guided exercises



Phases of Recovery for Lasting Relief 


Each individual will have different goals. It’s important to express your desired approach to care and be honest about the amount of homework that you’re willing to do. 


Ultimately the key factors and aspects of treatment to have lasting effects are: 

  1. Adequate healing time – the process of recovery and healing isn’t linear. There will be ups and downs, days that are better or worse and this doesn’t mean that treatment isn’t working 
  2. Communication – does the practitioner know what you’re looking for, has a clear picture been made about your symptoms and how they change or has a patterning been established? Do you understand the why and how behind treatment choices being offered to you? 
  3. Consistency – show up and be an active, attentive and motivated part of your treatment plan. Show up at the discussed frequency of appointment times, do the required exercises or home care advice that has been suggested to you and be honest about what is, or isn’t working.
