Do you have sciatica? Do you experience pain that shoots from your lower back down your leg? You may think this is something you just have to put up with, no matter how painful it is. Fortunately, that’s not true.
Sciatica is pain that radiates from the lower back into the buttocks, hips, and outer sides of one or both legs. It’s caused by the compression of a spinal nerve root in the lower back, often owing to degeneration or injury of an intervertebral disc.The sciatic nerves are the body’s largest nerves. For many people, sciatica can feel like an electric shock running down their leg.
Your spine is made up of movable segments that are separated by small jelly like discs and surrounded with muscles and ligaments.These structures support and absorb shock. Unfortunately, they are also vulnerable to both accidents from sports injuries and falls and repetitive stress injuries from activities like sitting at a computer all day. When the sciatic nerve becomes impinged, we call this sciatica.
The good news is, help is available! Misalignments in your spine with pressure on the nerves is exactly what a chiropractor is trained to analyze and correct. A functional spinal exam can provide you with the information needed to begin the process of healing and recovery.
