Sciatica and back pain is one of the most common problems that we see in our chiropractic clinic. Sciatic pain can be extremely disruptive to your day-to-day activities and cause a significant amount of pain.
The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body, it starts in the lower back and travels all the way down to the toes. If this nerve is irritated or pinched anywhere along this path, it results in shooting pain, numbness, and pain.
Irritation and swelling of spinal discs are a common cause of sciatica. A disc buldge will compress this nerve resulting in not only the typical shooting pain associated with sciatica but also back pain.
You can improve your symptoms.
Once we have pinpointed the cause of your problem, we will be able to make the necessary adjustments to help alleviate your pain.
Spinal misalignments are often the primary cause of sciatica. Poor alignment places unnecessary pressure on the joints, discs, and muscles of the lower back which may cause an inpingment of the sciatic nerve. In order to provide you with both fast and lasting relief, it is important that we focus on correcting the underlying cause of your problem rather than just the symptoms. At Zalben Zone Chiropractic, we will work with you to improve and correct your spinal alignment and the function of your nervous system.
