Reed Chiropractic Clinic Has Your Back
Sciatic nerve pain is one of the most insidious and unpleasant forms of pain, and one we see all too often here in Solon at Reed Chiropractic Clinic. With the host of other problems sciatica can cause, from normal low back pain, pain while walking, and other movement, sciatica can be accompanied by pain in a number of other areas, as the sciatic nerve runs from the base of the spine and down both legs.
Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica presents with a whole host of different symptoms that can be either intermittent or constant. The following are some of the most common:
- Lower back pain
- Pain and numbness in the legs
- Difficulty moving, especially standing or sitting
- Tingling and burning sensations in the legs, buttocks, and lower back
- Shooting pain that limits movement
Causes of Sciatica
Sciatic nerve pain can be caused by being overweight or pregnant, undue pressure being put on the lower back, a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back, and the degeneration of the discs between a person’s vertebrae such as a herniated or bulging disc. Insufficient exercise, the wrong mattress, or wearing high heels may also contribute to the pain from sciatica that a person feels.
What You Can Do for Your Sciatica
Depending on the cause of your sciatica, there are a number of different treatments a chiropractor can offer to help curb your symptoms and get you back to living a pain-free life. If the cause of your sciatica is spinal stenosis, a herniated or bulging disc, or some other malformation in your spine or back, chiropractic adjustments can put your spine back into proper alignment, allowing your body to heal. While some medications like painkillers or muscle relaxers may effectively mask your pain, they’ll never treat the root cause of your sciatica like chiropractic care can.
