Sciatica Symptoms & Chiropractic Treatment

Sciatica is described as a group of symptoms most commonly characterized by a persistent pain along the sciatic nerve, which travels from the low back, down through the buttocks, and into the lower leg. The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body and its mainly in charge of controlling the muscles of the lower legs as well as providing sensation to the thighs, legs, and the base of the feet.

While the most common symptom of sciatica includes radiating pain along the length of the sciatic nerve, the symptoms of sciatica can vary according to the affected area of the nerve. For several individuals, the signs and symptoms include mild tingling and numbness sensations, a dull ache, a burning sensation typically on one side of the body, and a pins-and-needles sensation on the toes or foot.

Through chiropractic care, a chiropractor can provide non-invasive and drug-free treatment options for sciatica. The goal of chiropractic care is to restore the natural mobility of the spine as well as improving the normal function of the structures within the body while reducing pain and inflammation. Depending on the cause of sciatica, chiropractic treatment may use various treatment methods, including but not limited to spinal adjustments, ice/heat therapy, ultrasound, TENS or Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation, and a series of rehabilitative stretches and exercises.

While efficient treatment options for sciatica exist, however, it’s possible to prevent sciatica from occurring in the first place by followed a few suggestions to protect your spine and promote spinal health. Consuming a healthy diet to maintain a proper weight, regular exercise, practicing a proper posture as well as avoiding prolonged inactivity or bed rest are all efficient ways to improve the well-being of your spine and help prevent symptoms of sciatica.

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Sciatica is commonly experienced by many as a frequent cause of low back and leg pain. The symptoms of sciatica generally occur in individuals between the ages of 30 and 50 years of age, most often developing as a result of a natural wear and tear, degeneration on the structures of the lower spine. Infrequently, sciatica can occur as a result of direct trauma from an injury that causes compression on the sciatic nerve.
