Curing Sciatica Pain with Deep Tissue Laser Therapy

Written By East Side Chiropractic on February 5, 2018

Even though the majority of people who suffer from sciatica will notice a natural improvement in their symptoms within a few weeks, you can experience sciatica pain for months or perhaps even years. 

This can be incredibly debilitating, uncomfortable, and unpleasant, which is why you may be looking for natural treatments that will cure it. 

Deep tissue laser therapy is one of the most effective ways you can do this. 

Are You Experiencing Sciatica Pain?

The sciatic nerve is the body’s longest nerve, running from behind your pelvis to the ends of your feet. 

You’ll often notice pain in the backs of your legs, your buttocks, and/or your toes and feet. 

These painful sensations may include shooting, burning, or stabbing pains, or they could be tingling sensations, rather like pins and needles. You may also feel weak or numb in this area. When you cough, sneeze, or move, these symptoms may worsen. 

Sciatica often originates after the roots of the lumbosacral spine and lower lumbar have been irritated.

Other common causes include muscle spasm, pregnancy, spondylolisthesis, degenerative disc disease, or lumbar spinal stenosis. 

Wearing high heels, being overweight, not exercising enough, or sleeping on a soft mattress can intensify your sciatica pain. 

What Does Deep Tissue Laser Therapy for Sciatica Involve? 

Deep tissue laser therapy is used to treat a number of different conditions, including sciatica, offering a safe, pain-free, and quick solution to the symptoms. 

Each session lasts around 5 to 10 minutes and you should start to notice an improvement in your symptoms after approximately 3 sessions (severer cases may take up to 5). 

Lasers like the LiteCure Class IV laser work by encouraging the natural healing powers your body already has. This includes boosting cellular activity to aid the recovery of your nerve roots and reduce any inflammation. 

And, while your laser therapy session may only take a few minutes, the healing powers it induces don’t stop as soon as you walk out of the door. Instead, the healing effects continue to work hard in your body for up to 24 hours after. 

And the best bit? 

Many patients undergoing deep tissue laser therapy in Miami will feel few, if any, sensations during their treatment. Plus, there aren’t any nasty side effects, unlike the various medications you may be prescribed for your sciatica pain.
