Chiropractic Crofton MD Sciatica Pain

So, you’re looking for an answer for your sciatica pain in Crofton, and maybe you’ve read previous articles on sciatica that contained a lot of stuff you’ve heard before.

Maybe you’ve been to your family doctor/orthopedist/ neurologist/rheumatologist/pain management doctor/physical therapist/ massage therapists/chiropractor/acupuncturist/gym trainer/taken glucosamine/msm/herbs/vitamins, and now you are still reading this. What information can I give you that is different? Keep reading.

Overcoming Sciatic Pain in Crofton MD

Like I said before, I have been wrestling with my patients’ sciatica pain for years. I’ve had a touch of it myself, but even though I have had almost all of the problems I treat in my patients, I can’t say I’ve had a lot of problems with sciatica, which is the pain in your butt that runs down the middle of the thigh and lower leg, with a little back pain thrown in maybe.

I mention that I’ve been working on sciatica for 20+ years at Grande Family Chiropractic, not so much as to brag about some hyped-up awesome mastery of the treatment of this problem, but to let you know that I’m not just a professional writer working for an online media marketing company that was hired to ghostwrite this series of blogs about sciatica. I have hundreds of hours of trial and error sciatica treatment that went into the observations and study I am drawing on for this article.

Okay, I got all of that out of the way—more blah, blah, blah, right?

So since you’ve been reading this patiently I will now blurt out 5 key concepts that are behind the persistence of sciatica, and which are probably not what you would read about in most other people’s sciatica blogs, if any others at all:

  1. Gap  junctions
  2. Satellite glial cell activation
  3. Pro-inflammatory cytokines
  4. A and C fiber nerve conduction
  5. Connective tissue conformational change.

In the next article in this series I will explain my working theory about the connection between sciatica pain and the 5 key concepts above that I just introduced. I think these 5 concepts give a fuller understanding of the problem, and have proven to be reliable guides for me in the successful treatment of many sciatica cases in Crofton.
