Sciatica Pain

Sciatica is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. Bulging discs, spinal misalignments, and muscle spasms can all cause increased pressure on the sciatic nerve. When this happens it causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower back and leg. Sciatica is the symptom of an underlying problem like a smoke alarm is a symptom of a fire. Most people treat the symptom of pain with pain pills. We know that pain pills have dangerous side effects including stomach ulcer/bleeding, kidney damage, addiction and death.

After a thorough evaluation we will explain what is causing your pain and how to reduce or eliminate it without the use of dangerous drugs. Stop living with pain and call us today!

What Causes Sciatica, Anyway?

The longest nerve in the body is the sciatic nerve. There are two of them, and they begin in the lower back and travel down to your feet. In most cases, sciatica is caused by a herniated disc that has spilled over onto a sciatic nerve root and compressed it. This compression leads to various symptoms, including:

  • Shooting or stabbing pain
  • Burning sensations
  • Tingling or numbness in the extremities
  • Muscle weakness

These symptoms are only felt on one side of the body – the side on which the nerve has become compressed. They don’t typically last all day, but rather occur when you move or sit in specific ways that increase the compression. Many people find temporary relief from changing positions or activities or walking around for a while.

How a Chiropractor Can Help Relieve Sciatica

Lasting relief from sciatica symptoms comes from correcting the issue that has caused the compression. Some of the most common methods for doing this include adjustments and decompression therapy.

Adjustments are used to restore proper alignment to the spinal column. When misalignment occurs, it puts undue pressure on the spinal discs, which often leads to a herniated disc. Adjustments help relieve this pressure.

Decompression therapy is a technique used to gently stretch the spine. This creates space for all the spinal components and pulls herniated discs back in, which removes the pressure on the nerve.

Adjustments and decompression therapy are keys to relief, but other methods are also employed for optimal results. These include therapeutic exercise to stretch and strengthen the core, soft tissue therapy to improve blood circulation and stimulate healing, and lifestyle adjustments to correct habits that cause poor spinal health. This combination of techniques helps relieve your current suffering as well as prevent sciatica from occurring again.
