Sciatica Treatment | Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine




Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve in the lower back becomes compressed. This condition often stems from herniated discs, bone spurs, spinal stenosis and degenerative diseases, among other causes. As a result, tingling or numbness in the extremities, muscle weakness, loss of mobility and trouble sleeping can occur.

This disorder can have a profound effect on everyday life, making appropriate diagnoses and treatment especially important. At Austin Preferred Integrative Medicine, our medical providers work closely with each patient to identify the root of sciatica-related issues. After a thorough initial evaluation, patients will begin a personalized treatment plan consisting of Chiropractic Care, Physical Therapy and Medical Services, in some cases.

Sciatica Treatment Options:

Non-invasive approaches to treating sciatica include heat and ice, spinal adjustments, acupuncture and manual therapy. However, our Nurse Practitioner is on hand to administer more aggressive techniques like injections or pain medications, if necessary.
