Chiropractic Care for Sciatica in San Antonio, TX

Chiropractic San Antonio, TX Man with Sciatica Pain

Sciatica, characterized by lower back pain radiating through the buttock and down the leg, affects over three million Americans annually. Symptoms range from mild aches to sharp, burning sensations, loss of muscle function, and sciatic nerve pain and are often accompanied by numbness, tingling, or weakness in the leg or foot and hip pain. While commonly misunderstood as a singular condition, sciatica results from various underlying issues in San Antonio, TX. Impairment of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the body, leads to sciatic pain. Moore Chiropractic in San Antonio, TX, offers effective relief for sciatica by addressing the root causes of nerve impingement, such as herniated discs or bone spurs.


The first thing that our chiropractors will do is to try to determine the cause of sciatica. Only by identifying what's impinging the nerve can the chiropractor develop a treatment plan to relieve the pressure and pain. Some common causes of sciatic nerve pain include the following:

  • Herniated Disc: A slipped disc is a condition in which the discs that cushion your vertebrae become damaged and begin to bulge out or rupture.
  • Spinal Stenosis: This is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows, putting pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.
    Piriformis Syndrome: The piriformis muscle, which runs from the hip to the spine, irritates or squeezes the sciatic nerve.
  • Spondylolisthesis: One vertebrae can slip out of place and press on the sciatic nerve.
  • Degenerative Disc Disease: The discs between the vertebrae break down and become less effective at cushioning and absorbing shocks.
  • Pregnancy: The extra weight you carry during pregnancy can pressure the sciatic nerve. Wear and tear on the lower spine and age-related changes in the spine can lead to sciatic nerve pain.


Once the root cause is identified, our chiropractors at Moore Chiropractic will design a tailored treatment plan, which may involve chiropractic adjustments and spinal manipulation.

During an adjustment, precise and gentle pressure is applied to the vertebrae to realign them. Misalignment and herniated discs can compress or pinch nerves, including the sciatic nerve, leading to pain. Chiropractic adjustments help alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve, providing spinal pain relief.

Many patients experience immediate relief after adjustments, but routine corrections at Moore Chiropractic are necessary for long-term benefits and improving muscle function.
