Sciatica is defined as pain that begins in the lower back and extends down one or both legs. It typically worsens with periods of sitting or standing. Coughing, sneezing or other kinds of movement can be painful.
The discs between the spinal bones of the lower back are often involved. A sudden or lots of small repetitive trauma can cause one or more discs to bulge. This crowds nearby nerves, causing irritation and inflammation. If not taken care of, the nerve irritation extends down one or both legs along the sciatic nerves.
It’s a mechanical and structural issue in your spine and that’s why Chiropractic care can help. Pills or muscle relaxants can’t correct the nerve compression caused by a bulging disc.
It all starts with a consultation and thorough examination. If we think we can help, we’ll tell you. And if we don’t think we can help, we’ll tell you that too and refer you to someone we think can. Get started today with a complimentary consultation.
