Dr. Browner – Naples Chiropractor for Sciatica Pain Relief
In many instances, sciatica is caused by a bulging or herniated disc in the lumbar region of the back. When a disc is bulging or herniated, pressure can be put on the sciatic nerve and pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling will be experienced down one or both legs. However, there are other causes of sciatica, such as trauma from a fall or accident, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease. When you first visit with Dr. Browner regarding your sciatic pain, he will thoroughly evaluate your condition in order to determine the exact cause of your sciatic pain and to develop a course of treatment uniquely designed to treat your unique symptoms and circumstances.

Whether you are suffering from a sharp, shooting pain running down your legs, a burning sensation on one side of your lower back and down one leg, or difficultly and/or pain when trying to stand up, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Browner so that he can ascertain whether or not you have an irritated sciatic nerve and then develop a treatment plan so that you can be pain-free as soon as possible. Even if other doctors have said that surgery is the only option, Dr. Browner can bring you relief through non-invasive, totally safe methods that will amaze you. By relieving pressure on the affected nerve with chiropractic manipulations in conjunction with various therapies, Dr. Browner can enable your body’s own healing mechanisms to go to work. Part of a successful treatment plan may include any combination of the following:
- Chiropractic adjustments – By realigning the vertebrae in the lumbar region, the flow of oxygen and blood in increased to aid healing. In addition, pressure is taken off of the nerve and surrounding tissues.
- Disc decompression – A rhythmic and gentle stretching and relaxation of compressed discs so that space is increased between the vertebrae. Vital nutrients are thereby allowed greater access to the affected discs and toxins and waste more easily carried away.
- Massage therapy – In addition to improving your overall well-being by removing toxins from the body, message therapy can loosen tightened muscles providing for a greater range of motion and pain relief to the lower back, hips, and legs.
- b – Inactivity will actually increase the pain of sciatica, in most cases, as muscles stiffen and create more restriction and irritation. That is why Dr. Browner will develop an exercise regimen for you that will help to strengthen the necessary areas of your lower back so that pain abates and the risk of future injury is minimized.
