Sciatica Q & A

What’s sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is a nerve that connects the lower back to each of the legs. Sciatica is a common condition that occurs when this nerve becomes irritated or compressed.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

The symptoms of sciatica may include pain, tingling, or numbness. Patients usually experience these symptoms down the leg. In most cases, patients experience the symptoms of sciatica on only 1 side of the body. However, sciatica may not always affect the same side of the body each time a flare occurs.

What causes sciatica?

Sciatica typically occurs because of a herniated disc, which is a vertebral disc that bulges out of place. This disc presses on the sciatic nerve, which causes the symptoms of sciatica. In some cases, sciatica may occur because of nerve damage or a bone spur.

How can Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center help with sciatica?

Advanced Back & Neck Pain Center helps with sciatica by using a combination of therapies designed to relieve the pressure on the nerve and alleviate the symptoms of this painful condition. The facility uses some of the most advanced chiropractic treatments to restore normal alignment to the spine and improve the symptoms of herniated discs, which are often responsible for the development of sciatica. In addition, doctors may prescribe physical therapy and massage therapy in conjunction with chiropractic care to help the patient improve the muscle tone and stability of the back.

Why is chiropractic care a good choice for patients with sciatica?

Traditional treatments for sciatica include oral medications and surgery. However, unlike these methods, chiropractic care isn’t invasive and won’t cause serious side effects. In addition, many patients report a noticeable improvement in their symptoms shortly after beginning treatment.

What can patients do to improve the effectiveness of treatment?

Patients can improve the effectiveness of sciatica treatment by carefully following the doctor’s instructions. Patients should attend all recommended treatment sessions and complete any exercises prescribed for home. Patients should also look for ways to relieve stress, maintain a healthy weight, and keep active to prevent future problems.
