What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a problem caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve. Many times, sciatica is used interchangeably with back pain, but it is actually not just limited to the back. This nerve in the patient's body controls many parts of the body and damage to it can be quite problematic. Therefore it is important to recognize the symptoms as soon as possible so chiropractic care can be undergone to treat it.

How does Sciatica Occur?

There are many different reasons why sciatica can affect a person. A few possible causes and symptoms of this are:

  • Compression of the nerves or problems with the spine.
  • Muscle pain and joint strains.
  • Tingling or pain on one side of the leg or buttocks.
  • Weakness or numbness in the leg.
  • Acute pain while sitting.
  • Sharp pain while standing up.
  • Pain that moves along the length of the leg into the foot.

What is the Procedure for Treating Sciatica?

Sciatica can easily be treated with the surgery but the success rate is low and not effective for long periods of time. Chiropractic methods have been proven to be one of the best ways to treat spinal issues.

How is Chiropractic Care Useful in Treating Sciatica?

Chiropractic care, a holistic healing approach, uses non-invasive procedures to help solve the problems of patients. It works on the patient's spinal problems, neck pain and much more. The chiropractic procedure involves manual adjustments that reduce pressure on the patient's body.
