Sciatica & Chiropractic Care
Did you know that the sciatic nerve runs down your lower back through your buttocks down the back of your legs to your toes? “Sciatica” refers to symptoms along this nerve distribution. Sciatica pain varies from a dull pain to a sharp burning pain commonly referring down the legs. It is also associated with pins and needles, strength loss and reflex changes. Common causes of sciatica can be from referred pain sites such as muscles, joints and ligaments of spine. It can also be from a nerve compression or irritation caused by disc injuries (herniation or slipped disc causing compression), spinal stenosis (narrowing of spinal canal through degeneration or growths etc.) and piriformis syndrome (direct compression of the muscle which the sciatic nerve passes through).
Note that sciatica treatment will vary depending on the direct cause however will usually consists of specific chiropractic adjustments, at home exercises and coping mechanisms for the inflammation such as ice and heat or anti-inflammatory medication as required.
