Sciatic nerve pain is one of the most common types of lower back pain that we see among patients here at Dewald Chiropractic in Palmdale, CA. However, most of our patients who have low back pain are actually suffering from sciatica, which has to do with the sciatic nerve. Learn more about sciatica prior to visiting our chiropractic office.
Sciatica is caused by pressure or pinching on the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs from each side of your buttocks down to each of your feet. Typically when you experience sciatic nerve this is because you have a muscle that is pressing onto the sciatic nerve. A common reason that this is happening is that your spine is unaligned, which can shift your muscles to the improper position.
The most common symptom of sciatica is pain in your lower back that extends into your buttocks. You can have sciatica on one side of your body or both, but typically it occurs on one side as a result of an out of aligned spine. You may also experience numbness, tingling, or sharp pains in the area affected by sciatica. These feelings can extend through your leg and into your foot.
Your chiropractor can treat sciatic nerve pain by starting with a chiropractic adjustment. This allows the doctor to realign your spine, and thereby take pressure off of your sciatic nerve. In doing so you are able to experience pain relief without lower back surgery or other invasive techniques. We are also able to relieve your sciatica problem without the use of toxic drugs, such as opioids and other painkillers.
