What Causes Sciatica and Other Nerve Pain?
Nerve pain can occur when nerves become compressed, irritated, or adhered to scar tissue. Besides nerve pain, other symptoms include numbness, tingling, and loss of mobility.
Most cases of sciatica are the result of a spinal disc herniation pinching on one of the lumbar or sacral nerves. Using the straight-leg-raising test and other methods, a chiropractor can accurately diagnose your sciatica or other nerve pain, and help you on the road toward reducing your pain.
Active Release Technique and Long Tract Nerve Mobilization
Nerve mobilization helps restore function while reducing nerve pain. Chiropractors and physiotherapists commonly use the active release technique to treat soft-tissue injuries and nerve pain. Using this technique, recovery from nerve pain can happen in just a few sessions.
Long tract nerve mobilization gets its name from peripheral nerve entrapment, where a nerve, because of an injury, becomes stuck within soft tissue.
The active release technique can help to quickly treat conditions such as disc herniations, sciatica, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
David Butler pioneered neuromobilization techniques in order to accelerate nerve healing and while reducing nerve pain and numbness and restoring mobility.
The Butler technique is another manual, hands on therapy that focuses on retraining the brain than to imagine one’s body moving well, to recreate healthy movement.
