Centennial Chiropractic Discusses The Basics of Sciatic Nerve Pain
Sciatica is a condition that involves the inflammation of your sciatic nerve. It is marked by significant pain in the buttocks or low back that doesn't respond to medication and can travel down the leg. At Centennial Chiropractic Clinic in Springfield OR we look for the reasons behind your sciatic nerve pain and work to resolve the problem.
The Sciatica Symptoms to Watch For
Sciatica produces pain that burns or tingles. The pain can be severe and interfere with your daily activities. The pain originates in your low back and buttocks but can travel into your foot. You might have trouble sleeping, problems walking, or feel sharp, stabbing pain any time you try to move. Sciatica is a painful condition that can make you stop in your tracks.
How Sciatic Nerve Pain Develops
The sciatic nerve can become irritated for a number of reasons. Arthritis, spinal subluxations, bulging discs or an injury can cause inflammation in your sciatic nerve. When left untreated, the inflammation can get worse and the pain will travel further down your leg. Medication doesn't generally help as the issue is with a compressed nerve that needs relief.
How A Chiropractor Treats Sciatica
The goal of chiropractic treatment is to reduce the compression on your sciatic nerve in order or it to calm down. We use spinal adjustments, decompression therapy, manual therapy, massage, stretching and strengthening exercises with patients who are seen for sciatic pain. You may find some pain relief after your first visit, but you should see your chiropractor regularly until you don't experience pain in between appointments.
