What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is pain in the lower back resulting from the irritation of the sciatic nerve. Pain from sciatica is usually felt from the lower back, which is the lumbar area, to behind the thigh and reaches down below the knee. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and reaches from the spinal cord in the low back through the buttocks and then sends nerve endings down the leg. Sciatic pain is sometimes called sciatic nerve pain.
What causes sciatica?
Sciatica can be caused by a number of conditions in the lumbar, low back, area. Sometimes sciatica is the result of a misalignment of the spine, called subluxation, causing the sciatic nerve to be pinched. Conditions like bulging or herniated discs can also be spinal related reasons for sciatica. Other causes of sciatica can include irritation of the nerve from adjacent bones, tumors, muscles, internal bleeding, infections, and injury. Sometimes sciatica can occur because of irritation of the sciatic nerve during pregnancy.

There are a number of ways to treat sciatica, but we have found that chiropractic is the most effective way of treating the problem so the symptoms you are experiencing go away so no further symptoms will occur. Our goal is to release the impingement on your sciatic nerve by addressing the issues with the affected joint. This is done through adjustments, mechanical therapies, exercises and self therapies.
