Sciatic Nerve Pain

Green Chiropractic helps relieve Sciatic Nerve Pain

Sciatica refers to pain that travels along the path of the sciatic nerve. It is caused by the pinching of large nerve in the lower back. The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks, down each leg, into the feet. 

The symptoms of sciatica include:
  • Moderate to severe pain in lower back, buttock and down your leg.
  • Numbness or weakness in your lower back, buttock, leg or feet.
  • Pain that worsens with movement; loss of movement.
  • “Pins and needles” feeling in your legs, toes or feet.

It may feel like a mild tingling, dull ache, burning sensation to sharp and severe pain. In some cases, the pain is severe enough to make a person unable to move. The pain most often occurs on one side. Some people have sharp pain in one part of the leg or hip and numbness in other parts.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica happens when pressure is placed on the sciatica nerve. Factors that can contribute to sciatica are:

  • Herniated  or bulging discs
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Injury and traumas
  • Regular wear and tear from age
  • Repetitive motions
  • Muscle imbalances

What happens if sciatica is left untreated?

If the sciatic nerve is damaged, it could result in numbness, tingling and, in more severe cases, weakness in the knees or legs. The longer it is left untreated, the longer it will take for numbness and weakness to go away, and they may become permanent.

Chiropractic Care and Sciatica

Chiropractic care is a popular natural treatment for sciatica. It can relieve pain without medication and is generally considered a safe treatment option. Chiropractic adjustments help relieve the pressure on your sciatic nerve. For most patients, choosing chiropractic for sciatica care is the most effective means of treatment.
