Sciatica is a condition that causes pain along the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back down through the hips and legs. In most cases, sciatica only affects one side of the body, but it can cause pain to radiate around the hips, buttocks, lower back, thighs, and calves.
Some patients with sciatica might have pain that feels like cramping, burning, pins and needles, tingling, or sharp and shooting. The affected areas might also feel weak, and the pain may get worse when you cough, sneeze, or move your body in specific ways.
In most cases, sciatica occurs when a herniated disc pinches the sciatic nerve. It can also develop as the result of a bone spur on your vertebrae or from a tumor that’s compressing the nerve.
You may be more likely to develop sciatica as you age since the spine becomes more vulnerable to disc problems or bone spurs. You might also be more prone to sciatica if you’re overweight, have diabetes, or have a job that requires you to carry heavy equipment or sit for long periods of time.
The primary form of treatment at Hall Family Chiropractic Clinic is spinal adjustments. These are the cornerstones of chiropractic care and help restore the proper position and functionality of misaligned vertebrae.
Your provider uses a number of unique tests and procedures to determine which, if any, vertebrae are compromised. Using spinal adjustments or spinal manipulation, they apply quick, gentle corrective pressure to the vertebrae. That changes the position of the spine and relieves the pressure from the sciatic nerve.
Besides adjustments, your treatment plan may include:
Chiropractic care for sciatica can provide both immediate and long-term pain relief. It’s a safe and effective treatment option for most patients, and adjustments typically aren’t uncomfortable. In fact, most patients look forward to their chiropractic adjustments and feel better immediately afterward.
