Sciatic Pain Relief in Savannah and Pooler GA

sciatic treatment Savannah GA

Sciatic pain can be anything from just a nuisance to a debilitating pain. It can also be caused by many different things, which is why it’s also best to have a doctor diagnose the cause. We are going to take a look at some of the most common causes and what you can do to find relief from your sciatic pain.

By far, the most common cause of sciatic pain is a tight or spasm’d piriformis muscle. This muscle acts as a pelvic stabilizer, assists in abduction of the leg and leg rotation. The sciatic nerve can get compressed and pinched by this muscle, when the muscle gets too tight. This muscle tension can be caused by many things, the most usual of which is spending too much time sitting; such as sitting at a computer all day or taking frequent, long road trips. This muscle tension can also be caused by problems in the lower back, poor posture, an abnormal gait due to another injury, sitting with your legs crossed, exercising without stretching, etc. When you visit our clinic, we can help determine if this is the cause of your sciatic pain and can help you identify and correct the underlying cause of the muscle tension.

The following stretches are good for relieving tension or spasm of the piriformis muscle, and in many cases can relieve your sciatic pain: (It is always best to come in, so we can make sure you are doing the stretches correctly)

How can chiropractic help sciatica?

We’ve discussed how sciatica can be caused by piriformis muscle tension, and some of the causes for that tension. When the sacroiliac joint is subluxated (more on that here), the muscles that function as movers and stabilizers for that joint can get over-worked, and over-worked muscles can get very tight. As chiropractors, we correct this issue through spinal adjustments. We also provide exercise therapy and therapeutic modalities, such as electric muscle stim, to help the muscle relax, heal and strengthen in order to prevent recurrence of this disorder.

Lumbar spinal subluxations or sacroiliac subluxations can also put pressure on nerves that contribute to the sciatic nerve bundle. Compression of these nerves as they exit the spinal column can also lead to sciatic pain. These subluxations can cause either direct pressure on the nerves or indirect pressure by causing inflammation (swelling) in the area, which in turn puts pressure on the nerve. This is more difficult to treat than sciatica caused by the piriformis muscle, as stretching and medication usually does not completely or permanently alleviate the symtpoms, such as pain and numbness traveling down the leg.

Of course, there are more serious causes of sciatic pain, which require a medical doctor or chiropractor to diagnose. If you have persistent sciatic pain that does not resolve on it’s own, it is important to get it diagnosed by a professional.

Conventional medicine would provide muscle relaxers, pain killers and anti-inflammatories. This only treats the symptoms, though…. which is great, who wants to be in pain, right! Well, what about the underlying issue that caused the inflammation, muscle spasms and pain? Sorry, that problem is still there, and is likely to cause symptoms again and may lead to further or worsening issues down the road.

At Dynamic Spine & Rehab, we find and correct the underlying cause for sciatica and will even help you develop lifestyle changes to prevent having this problem again.

Dr. Jewett has been very professional and thorough during the process of my rehab. He is very knowledgeable and he answers all questions I ask about my treatment.

I've had some bad experiences with chiropractors. But he is not one. he definitely knows what he's doing. I have carpal tunnel and he's really help me out a lot my thumb was asleep for three days and by the time I walked out of there it was back to normal. He could have easily told me to come back twice a week with the pain I was in but he recommended something else that didn't make him a dime. He's honest and truly wants to help, I totally trust more

There is something special about this place. Dr. Jon has an amazing staff supporting him. I arrived on the recommendation of a family member. After having been rear ended at a red light, I definitely had acute cervical/ lumbar pain. But between the awesome services and knowledgable staff, I was feeling better in no time! Never had chiropractic, exercise training, or massage therapy before visiting and it honestly changed my life! (That change being I was so impressed that now I have become a holistic health professional to bring others joy! CPT/ LMT) Everyone was very knowledgable in their areas of specialty and seemed to genuinely care. Not just about my journey getting better, but even about me as a person, lifestyle included. In my honest opinion, if you want the best and most effective injury treatment in the Savannah area, Dynamic is the place to go!!! Tell them Dominic sent you!read more

I recently experienced severe upper back pain for several weeks which later resulted in right side weakness. I found Dynamic Spine & Rehab researching online and chose their services based on the positive feedback from previous patients. I've been under Dr Jewett's care for several weeks and have improved by greater than 50% in my right side strength. I'm near baseline now and continue seeing Dr Jewett for routine care for continued wellness. Overall, excellent service with quick resolve to my medical more

My experience with Dr. Jewett was very good. I was visiting Savannah for tourism together with my mother who lives in Switzerland. She had a strong back pain for already a week, so we contacted this place and got an appointment the same day. After several questions on the details about the pain, Dr. Jewett took the correct decision to fix the issue and my mother recovers now well. Last but not least, the lady at the reception was very helpful and the involved costs were very more

Dr. Jewett has restored my way of living and daily routines. A few months ago, I became very sick with severe headaches, pressure in my head, and vertigo. I was so sick that I couldn't work, take care of my children, or even go to the grocery store. The pain lasted 24 hours a day for 4-5 weeks before I finally found Dr. Jewett in Savannah and decided to give it a shot. Before coming into his office, I was a on a lot of pain medication that was not touching the pain I was feeling. Within a few visits, my pain level went down dramatically and the pressure in my head went away. I have not had a severe headache since starting my adjustments with Dr. Jewett. He is very knowledgeable and truly cares about long term recovery, not just a quick fix. I would highly recommend!read more

I have been going to Dr. Jewett for a while and he is by far the best chiropractor I have ever been to. I was having neck and shoulder issues along with some sciatic pain and he has severely improved my quality of life. He works one on one with every patient at every visit which is sadly not what I have experienced at other offices in the area. He listens well and is very friendly. Not to mention his office is very tasteful. You can tell he takes so much pride in his work and reputation. You will not be more

Dr. Jewett is someone you can truly trust when it comes to chiropractic care and in my case TMJ! I'm fairly new to Savannah and, unfortunately, I was adjusted incorrectly by my (now previous) chiropractor because he said my jaw "looked crooked." I have never had my jaw adjusted before (but trusted him...) and it sent my TMJ pain OFF THE CHARTS!! I ended up in urgent care b/c the pressure in my ears was so bad I was getting migraines. I went back a couple times and his adjustments only made it worse. I contacted a few chiropractors and Dynamic Spine & Rehab was the first company to respond. I've never been afraid of chiropractic care before, but was obviously super hesitant to trust ANYONE at that point. Dr. Jewett spoke with me about what was going on and how I got to this level of pain. He assured me he had worked with TMJ before, but of course every case is different. I won't lie, getting your jaw properly adjusted (especially when it's been adjusted the wrong way) is very unpleasant, but a day or two after the first adjustment I could already tell a huge difference! I've been 3 times now and with a little help from a massage therapist am back to about 95% normal. Hallelujah!! I am so grateful to Dr. Jewett and would absolutely recommend him many times over!read more

I started seeing Dr. Jewett mid-August for neck/upper back pain that I’ve been suffering with for a while. I’ve always been extremely nervous of chiropractic care from an experience when I was younger but he made my extremely comfortable and always keeps me informed. I’m not even a full month into treatment yet and I’ve already noticed a major difference! I highly recommend treatment here, your experience is great from the moment you walk in! Thank you!!read more

My name is Trey Kerr I injured my back at the beginning of my military career back in 08 and just this year in 18 I had a spinal fusion surgery which I had hoped would correct the problem. Unfortunately it did not and this injury ended my military career. I found Dynamic Spine and Rehab and since being treated there my quality of life has drastically improved. I’m able to work with minimal pain and enjoy things like playing with my daughter again, and in general enjoy spending time with my family. I have tried cyropractic care numerous times and with numerous doctors over the years and I didn’t see much improvement, but thanks to the Doctor skills in treating the specific targeted area of my L5 S1 my overall health has improved I have even been able to ditch the 5 different pain narcotics that I have be living on for pain management. To the good Doctor and the rest of his team at Dynamic Spine thank you so much for giving my life more

I was always a skeptic when it came to Chiropractic treatment but some of the guys I work with swore by it. We are in construction so we are always lifting, crouching, kneeling, working above our heads, etc.. My back began to go through some frequent pain that I had to work through until it went away. I decoded to give Dr. Jewett a try and am really happy did so far. I feel more limber now after only two months. When my back starts to act up at work it is only for short periods of time more
