If you are experiencing pain that radiates from the back or buttocks all the way down the legs, you may have a common condition called sciatica. Many people look for relief so they don’t have to suffer with sciatica pain, and many never achieve a long term solution. An untreated sciatic condition can continue to worsen and make daily tasks difficult to impossible to accomplish.
What causes sciatica
Sciatica occurs due to compression of the large sciatic nerve. We can determine if your lower back pain is a result of sciatica and use chiropractic adjustments, physical rehabilitation exercises and regenerative therapy to help relieve the compression and pain.
HOW DO YOU DEVELOP SCIATICA?
There are a number of factors that can lead to sciatica. It is most commonly caused by disc injuries and bulges. In this occurrence, the disc presses against the nerve root causing the issue. Disc Injuries can occur because of poor posture, repetitive use injuries, and accidents. Sciatica is also common when there are subluxations (misalignments) in the spine due to postural issues, pregnancy, or trauma. Some patients say they simply bent over to pick up a piece of paper and they were hit with extreme pain. The reality is that the spinal condition was probably developing for quite some time before the triggering incident occurred.
