Sciatica Treatment

Sciatica is a painful condition caused by irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. If you suffer from sciatic pain, you know how disruptive it can be to your life.

Fortunately, chiropractic is the perfect way to help you heal. We've helped many patients recover from sciatica.

Sciatica is the compression and/or irritation of the Sciatic Nerve. The Sciatic Nerve begins in the low back and descends through the pelvis and buttocks down the back of the thigh, back of the knee, outside of the calf, the outside ankle into the “little” toe side of the foot.

Symptoms of Sciatica

Irritation of the sciatic nerve produces a characteristic set of symptoms. They include:

1. Pain: usually burning or stabbing, in the buttocks, down the leg, into the foot.
2. Numbness: a loss of feeling, sometimes subtle, along the distribution of the Sciatic Nerve.
3. Paresthesias (strange sensations): including tingling, pins & needles, burning, “bugs crawling” and pinching. I believe this is the cause of some cases of ”Restless Leg Syndrome”.
4. Weakness in the leg or foot: Knees may buckle and the foot may drop (inability to walk on the heel with toes elevated off the ground).
