What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is a specific type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve that extends from the lower back and down the back of each leg. Sciatica is caused by the compression and irritation of the roots within the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine. Typically sciatica pain begins in the lower back, extends down the thigh, and only affects one side of the body in the majority of cases. A few common causes include:

  • Lumbar spinal stenosis – a narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back.
  • Degenerative disc disease – the breakdown of discs that act as a cushion between the vertebrae.
  • Spondylolistheses – when one vertebra slips forward over another
  • Pregnancy

Sciatica Treatment

Sciatica treatment is heavily dependent on the underlying cause and severity of the pain. The use of manual manipulation has proven highly effective in the treatment of sciatica. In the hands of a trained professional, chiropractic adjustment can provide a better healing environment than traditional medical pathways. Spinal column alignment can help to address some underlying conditions that create sciatic nerve pain. As providers at Glacier Chiropractic, we do everything in our power to help our patients receive relief from sciatic pain.
