Why do pregnancy and sciatica go hand in hand?

The formula is quite simple really. A pregnant woman's body is a mosaic of growing and shifting weight, which in turn moves her center of gravity forward. By decentralizing the weight of the body, forces are not evenly distributed on the spine. As her abdominal muscles become stretched in the front, core stabilizing muscles are often weak and unable to cope with the added weight bearing down on the spine. As pregnancy hormones conspire to loosen ligaments in the pelvis, you then have to contend with imbalance in the pelvis which further destabilizes the spine at its very base. In such an environment, sciatica is an easy conclusion- an unbalanced, unsupported spine is liable to put pressure on the surrounding nerves. When the pressurized nerve happens to be the sciatica nerve (the largest in the body), you may experience the classic symptoms of sciatica which can add a lot of anxiety into the mix.

What is the Activator Method?

The activator method is the only instrument-assisted adjusting technique whose efficacy is proven by clinical trials. It is an invaluable member of our chiropractic toolkit, and it has helped us help hundreds of patients resolve long-standing muscular pain and dysfunction. The main benefits of the Activator Method are as follows:

  • Identify and resolve musculoskeletal imbalance
  • Identify and resolve spinal joint dysfunction 
  • Alleviate pain in the neck and back
  • Aid in relieving the cause of headaches

The Activator Method is the only tool for which we deviate from manual manipulation. Find out why by reading more below.

Chiropractic is effective care for seniors

Age is the great wrecker of spines. You are lucky if you reach retirement without ever having felt a twinge- most of us will have become aware of the process of aging some time before that. However, as we hit 60 and beyond, the process of bone and muscle loss ramps up, and we feel the effects of aging more keenly. Nowhere more keenly, in fact, than in the joints, which begin to show the years of wear and tear. As your joints ache, you tend to lose mobility, a slippery slope which can lead toward further debilitating pain or outright incapacitation. At Scorca Chiropractic, our goal is to prevent this from becoming your reality. And there is no better time than now to start! Read on to find out how chiropractic helps make old age more comfortable.

The third trimester is a pre-labor peak of discomfort

There is so much going on- you feel mentally drained, emotionally exhausted and physically short of sleep. Your body is strained from the baby's near-full grown weight. Many women in the third trimester report symptoms of:

  • Frequent urination
  • Heartburn
  • Fatigue and anxiety 
  • Back pain and associated discomfort

As contractions begin, the discomfort can reach a breaking point; at Scorca Chiropractic Center, our job is to keep you from reaching that point! We want to help strengthen your body against the physical and emotional challenges of the third trimester. Read on to find out how we can help.

Tight hips make trouble for your spine

Hips are a less-recognized member of your spine's support network. This is a shame because hip health has a direct impact on spinal health- a tight set of hips can actually destabilize your spine at its base, allowing for pain and dysfunction; hips with full mobility are able to stabilize the spine, transfer forces effectively and prevent injury. The fact is, modern lifestyles lend themselves to tight hips- the more time we spend seated, the more likely our hip flexors are to become tight and strained. While this in itself can cause pain and discomfort, the impact is multiplied when tight hip flexors create a pull on your spine.
