Sciatica Treatment in Westwood NJ: Sciatica is a condition that is defined usually by pain that originates in the low back or buttock that travels into one or both legs. This kind of pain is caused by sciatic nerve compression, or irritation of the roots of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine. It is a condition that is debilitating if not managed properly.
Manage Sciatica Pain Naturally with Medication-Free Treatment
Sciatica usually affects only one side of the lower body. Often, the pain extends from the lower back all the way through the back of the thigh and down through the leg. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also extend to the foot or toes.
Depending on the person, the pain from sciatica can be severe and constant, or the pain can be infrequent. Acute sciatica normally lasts four to eight weeks. Chronic sciatica may require physical therapy, which can include exercise, applied heat, and other techniques. In rare cases, surgery might be required, but it is important to manage your symptoms as soon as possible to prevent it from becoming worse.
Common symptoms of sciatica include:
- Lower back, leg, buttocks or hip pain
- Burning or tingling down the leg
- Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
Chiropractic Care and Acupuncture are the Top Treatments for Sciatica
The purpose of chiropractic treatment is to help the body’s potential to heal itself. It is based on the scientific principle that restricted spinal movement leads to pain and reduced function and performance. Chiropractic care is non-invasive (non-surgical) and drug-free.
The type of chiropractic therapy provided depends on the cause of the patient’s sciatica. A sciatica treatment plan may include several different modalities such as ice/cold therapies, ultrasound and TENS along with spinal adjustments. Dr. Gurman will work with you to determine the best course of treatment.

FAMILY ! That’s how Drs. Cathy and Jett treat me. Not only does my back feel better, I have more range of motion in my neck! They know how to educate us about our health, but I think the Warm Greetings and THE HUGS are what calms my “inflammation “😊 Sammie gives welcome reminders of my appointments. She’s friendly and personable, yet Very Professional.
This is a very friendly, caring chiropractic practice. From my very first appointment I felt comfortable and in competent hands.
The doctors and office staff make you feel like you are family. After only a few visits the problems I sought relief for began to subside. One such problem being insomnia lessened substantially. A coworker has also begun seeking better health by becoming a patient of these nurturing doctors. Highly recommend this practice.
I found this chiropractic just by google. When I visited I was struggling with numbness on my left arm and my left ear started ringing. It’s been almost 5 months I’ve been attending both Dr.Gurmans, my progress surprised me. My symptoms improved since couple of adjustments and even better than before. Dr.Cathy, Dr.Jett and team are the best. They truly care about every patient and their treatment plan. I have seen such a significant difference in my health since coming here. I am grateful and highly recommend them.
Dr. Cathy is my chiropractor. She is gentle, knowledgeable, and caring. Scheduling is flexible, and is always arranged for any last minute problems or concerns. I highly recommend Westwood Family Chiropractic.
Drs. Cathy and Jett are extremely knowledgable about chiropractic and the body. Their warm, inviting practice put me at ease, and they deliver on a great adjustment. I was very happy with the care I received at Westwood Family Chiropractic, and I highly recommend them both!
This is the only place to go for an adjustment. Dr. Jett and Dr. Kathy are caring and upbeat and very professional. The staff is wonderful, especially Sammi, who always has a smile to share.
Having an auto immune disorder, my intestines were feeling down and out. I was receiving medications for the side-effects of the disease, but not the cause. Since Westwood Family Chiropractic has started adjusting me, (specifically my middle back) I have had steady improvements. I would and will recommend Westwood Family Chiropractic.
I was recently in a car accident that left me with some terrible neck pain and headaches. Rather than taking medication for my pain, it was recommended by a family member that I try Chiropractic Therapy. It was my first time going to the chiropractor, and at first I wasn’t sure about it. After learning about how Chiropractic care could not only help with my pain, but also better my health I decided to give it a try. It has been two months of therapy and I haven’t had to use any pain medications for my injuries. Dr. Jett Gurman and Dr. Cathy Gurman at Westwood Family Chiropractic have been very educational and helpful with my Chiropractic care. I feel that I have more energy throughout the day and have less aches and pains. Thank you Westwood Family Chiropractic!
I’ve had intermittent flare-ups of back and neck pain and chiropractic has always helped get me better quickly. I’ve been to many chiropractors over the past 25 years, and Drs. Jett and Cathy are both excellent chiropractors and always treat me and everyone else that walks through the door like family. Their staff are friendly and professional which makes the office visit very comfortable. Their text reminders for my appointments help me stick to my treatment plan. Thanks Doc!
Westwood family chiropractic is a warm and caring place where you learn so much more then you expect to! I’m feeling so much better!
I never really thought about going to a chiropractor, but as a preschool teacher I really put stress on my body. After going to Dr. Jett and Dr. Kathy I really saw a difference! Not just in the way my back felt but my over all health. Chiropractic is a way of life, it has really changed mine. The whole staff is just overly welcoming and helpful. They make an effort to make everyone feel special.
My physical therapist recommended chiropractic adjustment because my back & neck pain wouldn’t go away. I wish I started going to Westwood Family Chiropractic earlier; Dr. Jett Kathy Gurman are the only ons who have been able to help alleviate much of the pain. Both teach in free on site workshops as well in order to keep their patients healthy and well adjusted. Their hours are convenient as well.
Dr. Jett and Dr. Cathy are awesome! I began going there at the urging of many family members despite not having any issues. I didn’t think it was possible to feel better but I do. I highly recommend them to everyone!
Love. Love. Love everyone at Westwood Family Chiropractic, so welcoming and happy. So happy to be part of the family there!
Such a wonderful group of people! Always leave feeling loved and fantastic!
My whole family has been going here for a number of years, including my 4yo and 7yo. I went to get rid of my weekly headaches, which are now gone. I thought I was getting them from caffeine and stress. My neck was out of alignment and now that it’s corrected, I feel great. I also had an incident from tossing my daughter up on my shoulders. I couldn’t move without severe pain, which was also cured within 2 visits to Dr. Jett. My wife has gone to them for 20 years.
Dr Jett and Dr Cathy run a warm and friendly practice. We bring our 3 and 6 year old kids. They’ve been going for a couple years. Being proprly adjusted helps keep them healthy. My visits have saved me a fortune in my Advil bill. I had weekly headaches that are now gone. They have frequent clinics if you want to learn more about chiropractic and how to take care of yourself. Last month i met a senior there that jogged to the door. She told me she couldn’t walk a few feet prior to visiting Dr Jett.
Shout out to Dr. Cathy for accommodating me on Thursday. I had a headache for two days following a visit to the gym on Tuesday to do a circuit workout. I was thinking I perhaps did something wrong and called wwfc to see if they could see me on my lunch hour even though I did not have an appointment and was told “sure”. I went and got my adjustment thus leading to the end of my very long headache. I am most grateful and there is definitely validity to the benefits of chiropractic care! And further to being a part of the wwfc family! Like a family member they are always there for you- they got your back! Literally!!
Before going to Westwood Family Chiropractic, I visited a couple other local offices and have never received the care that I receive by Dr. Jett and Dr. Cathy. I’ve never felt comfortable or received relief in my upper back and neck from another doctor. They put me on a reasonable schedule and adjusted as they saw fit. They track my progress and make sure that I am moving in the right direction in order to have a fully adjusted body and life. I appreciate that they don’t only adjust you, but educate you, so you truly understand what your body needs. Since getting adjusted regularly, I have had more motion in my neck and as a dance teacher that is extremely important. I have noticed that I do not get sick or stay sick as long while getting regular adjustments. My body is able to recuperate faster and more efficiently due to the care that I have received. Recently, I have been able to get my husband to come to the office and get checked out. He has suffered with back problems for many years and never thought he would receive any relief. His back is making small strides to get more mobility and less pain since coming to get adjusted. Dr. Jett and Dr. Cathy are the most caring and empathic doctors I have met. They become fully engaged in their patients’ lives and truly care about their progress and well being. Sammy and all the ladies at the front desk are warm and welcoming when you first walk through the door. Other doctors’ offices are stuffy and bland, however, Westwood Family Chiropractic is nothing like that! This office likes to celebrate accomplishments no matter how big or small and make their patients feel comfortable and welcomed. They don’t only help everyone in the family, they become part of your family.
I believe that chiropractic care is the key to not only establishing but maintaining full body health. I have gone to chiropractors on and off since childhood, and the periods of my life during which I received regular adjustments have been the healthiest overall. The most obvious change was how quickly I began to bounce back from the whiplash I got in my car accident. My soreness and tension began to dissipate much sooner than I expected and I was able to continue both of my job with little interruption. I’ve also noticed that I don’t feel as stiff or tense after long hours in the cutting room. When I have a migraine, I’ve noticed that getting an adjustment helps me bounce back much quicker then I was used to! Chiropractic care has changed my life by allowing me to take better control of my body and my health. It helps not only to off-set the particular physical stress of my life style, but to keep me feeling strong even when I don’t feel any pain. Most of the members of my family receive regular adjustments, several of whom visit at this office! I was raised with strong emphasis on a full body health and can say that chiropractic care is deeply embedded in the lifestyle of my immediate and extant family. I would recommend chiropractic care to anyone looking to take active steps toward a healthier, more balanced lifestyle. Chiropractic care is not only for those suffering from back pain, or injuries, it is the key to lining a healthy, energized, well balanced life!
