What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is nerve pain that comes from the sciatic nerve. When this nerve is aggravated in different ways, it can cause pain to occur in other parts of the body. Sciatica mainly affects people who are between the ages of 30 and 50. Women have a higher chance of developing sciatica when pregnant. The uterus can add pressure to the sciatic nerve while expanding for the unborn child.
What Causes Sciatica?
There are several causes of sciatica. Pregnant women whose uterus expands, adding pressure to the sciatic nerve can cause sciatica. Degenerative arthritis in the spine, sacroiliitis, piriformis syndrome, spinal tumors, spinal stenosis, a herniated disc, infections or injuries can also cause sciatica.
What are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
Symptoms of sciatica include lower back pain that goes into the hip, buttock and down one leg. This pain may increase when you sneeze, cough, or sit down. The affected leg may feel tingly, weak or numb as well. These symptoms can happen with no prior warning and last for days or weeks. Please contact us if you are experiencing any of these symptoms.
Treatment Plans for Sciatica
Making an appointment with a chiropractor who can help formulate a treatment plan can greatly reduce the nerve pain experienced with sciatica. Chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, spinal decompression, and corrective exercises can all help ease the pain and other symptoms of sciatica.
Chiropractic adjustments involve realigning the spine to the neck. This is done using quick thrusts to these areas. These adjustments can take pressure off muscles and nerves, bringing pain relief to these areas.
In massage therapy, the masseuse uses long, circular strokes all over the body to relieve muscle tension and nerve pain. Spinal decompression involves gently stretching the spine using a special device. This can realign the spine with the neck, and take pressure off nerves that cause sciatica pain.
