A Treatment for Sciatica.

Research revealed 60% of patients with sciatica who failed medical management benefited from spinal manipulation. The authors concluded that patients with a symptomatic lumbar disc herniation who have failed medical management should consider chiropractic care. At Denver Chiropractic Center, our chiropractors know that Active Release Techniques can free up the entrapped sciatic nerve as it passes through the muscles in the hip. In fact, in our experience sciatica is caused by the muscle much more commonly than it is caused by the disc.
