What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a type of pain that runs from your lower back to your lower leg. It usually affects one side of your body at a time and may not be a constant pain. It's called sciatica because the pain is generated by the sciatic nerve, which exits the lumbar spine and runs down each leg for major muscle control and movement.
The main causes of sciatica include a misaligned or damaged vertebra, a bone spur, herniated disk, or spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine) which places pressure on one of the sciatic nerve branches. When any one of these conditions is present, the sciatic nerve gets compressed or pinched and sends out a pain signal.
How a Chiropractor Can Help
Chiropractic care addresses the mechanical cause of sciatic nerve pain. That is, the musculoskeletal system has failed in some way and has allowed a vertebra or disk to move out of alignment. That misalignment puts pressure on the sciatic nerve and causes pain.
Our chiropractor can uncover the cause of the pain through musculoskeletal assessment and imaging techniques and create a plan of treatment to gently restore the spine to its original alignment. Addressing the issue through chiropractic care causes the body to readjust itself so that it stays in proper alignment.
Symptoms of Sciatica
The symptoms of sciatica include pain and a burning sensation that radiates from the lower back down leg down to the foot. You may find yourself having difficulty walking as the pain radiates from the shock of taking a step or sitting becomes uncomfortable over some time.
You may feel pain in one area, or you can experience pain in multiple places at the same time. Pain locations include:
- Lower back
