What Is Sciatica?

If you’ve experienced extreme pain in your lower back and leg, there’s the possibility that you may have sciatica. Radiating pain is a distinguishing sign of this condition, which is caused by the inflammation of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in our bodies. Whether it’s due to an injury, arthritis or age-related spinal degeneration, the sciatic nerve can become compressed by surrounding tissues. As a result, the nerve becomes inflamed and active, causing severe pain that radiates. You may have trouble functioning in everyday life. 

You may be unsure if the symptoms you are having are from sciatic nerve. Sciatica symptoms often include: 

  • Sharp, burning pain that extends from your buttocks down your leg
  • Numbness or tingling in the affected leg
  • Weakness and stiffness
  • Bowel or bladder changes

Sciatica tends to become more common with age due to degenerative changes in the spine, which may press against the nerve. Obesity, prolonged sitting and diabetes may also increase your risk. 

Chiropractic Provides the Relief You Need

If you were diagnosed with sciatica, it’s understandable to feel frustrated or hopeless. However, know that sciatica is readily treatable. A chiropractor can evaluate your physical condition and help you determine whether our services are right for you. We want our patients to receive the best care that they deserve. At our office, we utilize a range of different chiropractic techniques to ease nerve pain, including sciatica. Sciatic nerve pain can be immobilizing. Chiropractic can help restore your mobility, among other benefits: 

  • Reduced Pain. Pain is a hallmark symptom of sciatica, and it can be the most debilitating part of the condition. Chiropractic eases the symptoms and helps you function in everyday life. Many patients report improved pain thanks to chiropractic manipulation.
  • Lower Inflammation. One of the main contributing factors to pain in general is believed to be inflammation, or the immune response generated by the body. Inflammation often takes the form of swelling near an injury, and it can increase pain. 
  • Long-Term Solutions. We work with you to identify lifestyle changes that contribute to ongoing wellness.                               

Your wellness is our highest priority. We recognize that no two individuals are alike, so we provide customized pain management. We frequently assist patients with sciatica, as this condition grows more common with age, disease and injury.
