What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve. This is a nerve that runs from the lower back down each side of the outer leg. This nerve can become compressed due to a sudden pinching of the nerve, usually due to an awkward movement or twisting motion. Herniated or bulging discs can also cause sciatica. Herniated discs cause fluid from the discs to leak out into areas around the spine, irritating the sciatic nerve. A misaligned spine, spinal stenosis (a condition in which the spine becomes narrow), and muscle spasms can also cause symptoms similar to sciatica.

Symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Sharp pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Pain that shoots down either side of the leg
  • Pain upon sitting, twisting, or standing
  • Numbness in the extremities
  • Tingling in the extremities

How Can a Chiropractor Help?

Our chiropractor will conduct a full physical exam along with imaging tests to determine the root cause of your lower back pain. If sciatica is determined to be causing your pain and immobility, we will create a chiropractic care plan to treat it. Potential treatment options include:

  • Spinal decompression alleviates pressure put on the sciatic nerve due to herniated discs
  • Spinal and manual adjustments can help re-align the spine and take pressure off compressed nerves
  • Massage therapy to alleviate inflamed and tense muscles that can compress the sciatic nerve

Your chiropractor will determine which type of treatment is needed and for how long you will need to attend treatment sessions. They will also conduct follow-up sciatica treatment to ensure your symptoms stay at bay.
