Sciatica and Back Pain Relief in Asheville

Getting Beyond Sciatica and Back Pain to Living an Optimized Life!

Common scenarios for seeking care:

  1. You’ve had this pain for a while and have seen other doctors to try and find a solution. You did some digging and found what wellness care research has confirmed for a long time.
  2. You might be experiencing this pain for the first time and it’s alarming, so you’re seeking expert advice from a natural and holistic source.
  3. You might have had this pain and it itself resolved for a while, and now it has returned. You’re seeking more sustainable solutions.
  4. You may have heard from a family member, a friend, or a colleague about our unique approach to helping people with this type of symptom.

Our Holistic Approach Looks Deeper Than Your Symptom Might Appear!

  1. In understanding pain from a neurological perspective, it has been found through extensive research that pain is mostly an output signal from the brain. This means that the brain is interpreting stress in its environment (inside or out) and reacting to protect itself from that stressor.
  2. The stress patterns that can take place in the spinal cord’s attachment sites to the vertebral column, can create global stress on the entire physiology, which can lead to various symptoms for different people.
  3. Symptoms can usually be traced back to an area of subluxation or misalignment. These constricted regions in the body-mind can occur between adjacent vertebra, cranial bones, ribs, or joints in the upper or lower extremities.
  4. It is very rare that a physical symptom doesn’t have an emotional/mental element that goes along with it.

Neuroscience research has found that by calming the nervous system’s response to its defensive posturing and stress, low back pain and sciatica subside considerably and the body’s natural mechanisms for self-healing are optimized.

How We Clear Your Lower Back Pain and Sciatica:

  1. Check your posture and neurological tension and stress patterns. We’ll free up the midline stress through gentle and advanced tonal chiropractic. This will relax the body-mind considerably, allowing us to dive in deeper.
  2. Evaluate and balance key joints throughout the skeletal system through Zero Balancing. This will integrate the relaxation response further, freeing up areas that are tight, bunched up and restricting natural energy currents.
  3. Rule out stress in the organ system that can cause radiating pain to muscles and joints through the visceral-muscular reflexes. A common example is most people that experience a heart episode feel pain shooting down the left arm. With low back pain, we want to rule out stress in the kidneys and lower digestive organs.

Physical Keystone Areas We Check – where you might be subluxated or constricted:

  1. The Sacro-Tuberous Ligament – This ligament connects the sacrum and tailbone to the ischial tuberosity or “sits bone” which stabilizes the low back and shows up commonly as a key area that needs adjustment when low back pain presents itself.
  2. The Coccyx or Tailbone – Falling on the tailbone happens to most people at least once. As one of the main anchoring sites for the entire spinal cord – along with the upper neck and skull – it presents in a “tucked” position when out of alignment. This distortion pattern is intense on the entire spinal cord, which is why symptoms can occur anywhere in the lower back as referred or radiating pain. Imagine feeling the tension of the rope in the middle of a tug- of- war contest. That is the metaphor of the tension that occurs on the spinal cord due to a flexed tailbone.
  3. The Upper Neck and Cranium – As mentioned above, the upper neck and skull is the uppermost anchoring site for the entire spinal cord. Just as fine-tuning a guitar string at its end to affect the tone of the sound throughout, releasing the tension in these landmarks has a significant impact on the lower back. Unresolved low back pain usually accompanies some sort of distortion in the neck and is thus an important area to rule out.
  4. The “Dorsal Hinge” – The transitional area between the thoracic spine (where all the ribs attach) and the lumbar spine is referred to as the dorsal hinge. Balancing the tension of all the joints that comprise this region and relaxing the over-flexed posturing that can ensue due to prolonged sitting hours, significantly helps with clearing pain and discomfort in the lower back.
  5. The Femur – Due to its attachment to the pelvic girdle, the femur has a significant connection to low back pain patterns. A misstep, sitting or driving for a long time, sitting cross legged and high impact on the body are common physical strains that can lead to this hidden stuck area.
  6. The Sciatic Channel – The sciatic nerve is made up of 5 nerve roots, the 4th and 5th lumbars and the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd sacral spinal segments. It’s the longest and thickest nerve in the body and thus has many areas where the life force running through it can be inhibited. Through advanced chiropractic neurology, there are specific reflexes that will show up when this pattern presents itself.

Let’s consider the emotional-mental aspects of low back pain and sciatica as outlined in this article. See if you relate with the 5 common subjective “life experiences” or “stress pattern veils of perception.”
