What Is Sciatica?

The sciatic neuritis is the sacral region of your lower back. The sciatic system houses the clusters of nerves connected to the lower half of your body and stems from your spinal column. Sciatica pain can make daily life incredibly difficult. You may find it hard to get out of bed every day or go weeks feeling okay between painful flare-ups.

Causes & Symptoms Of Sciatica Pain

Often the pain associated with sciatica affects the lower back. This pain, however, can reach all the way down to your toes, causing tingling, numbness, spasms, or a shooting sting that radiates anywhere below the hips. Sciatica symptoms vary from person to person. Reasons you may be suffering sciatica pain include the following injuries, sudden body changes, and diseases:

  • Improper Lifting Or Sitting Posture
  • Recent Pregnancy And Childbirth
  • Automobile Accidents
  • Sports Injury
  • Hip Arthritis
  • Herniated Discs
  • Diabetes
  • Spinal Tumors

Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

Masking your aches with painkillers is only a temporary fix. It doesn’t address the reasons why your sciatica bundles are inflamed. To lower your risk of an invasive medical procedure, the nonsurgical treatment for sciatica that many Americans rely on is chiropractic care. The most common treatment options administered by a chiropractor for treatment of sciatica pain include:

  • Chiropractic Spinal Adjustments
  • Hot And Cold Compression
  • Muscle Stimulation Therapy

 Alternative Treatment Options

Sciatica therapy options depend on the cause and symptoms of your specific spinal condition. Because the sciatic nerves originate from the spine, your individual pain can radiate and affect any part of the lower body such as your calf, knee, or foot. So, your personalized treatment plan may also include any of the following alternative treatment options for sciatica symptoms:

  • Acupuncture
  • Meditation
  • Yoga Or Stretching Exercises
  • Massage Therapy
