Sciatica

Sciatic Nerve Treatment Provides Relief from Back Pain

back_pain_med.jpgWhen sciatica is causing discomfort and pain, sciatic nerve treatment at our chiropractic office delivers natural, effective relief. The sciatic nerve is the longest and biggest nerve within the human body, and it is located in the spine. Other nerve pathways connect to that nerve and stretch throughout other areas of the body. When the sciatic nerve is irritated, the result is mild to severe discomfort and pain that can radiate throughout the body.

It is important to note that sciatica itself is not a condition or disease. Instead, the term refers to a group of symptoms that commonly occur in connection to sciatic nerve irritation or a pinched sciatic nerve. Symptoms of sciatica are pain in the lower back, hips, thighs, legs and feet, as well as burning and tingling sensations or feelings of numbness. These symptoms are usually localized in the lower half of the body, and are often isolated to a single leg or foot. They may start out as a mild tingling or aching, but they may progress into sharp, chronic pain if left untreated.

There are many reasons why the sciatic nerve may become irritated. Often, patients develop sciatica as the result of an auto accident or injury that causes subluxations in the spine. This can result in a pinched sciatic nerve, which can be excruciatingly painful. Other causes of sciatica include poor posture, or even general wear and tear over time.
