A great number of people experience Sciatica. In fact, ten to forty percent of the population is affected by it. If you are unsure if this is the pain you are experiencing, we will outline what to look for.
So, what exactly is it?
Sciatica is pain that radiates along your Sciatic nerve. This nerve branches out to your lower back, hips, buttocks, and leg. However, it only typically affects one side of your body. There are a few reasons you may experience it. For instance, it may be due to a bone spur on your spine or a herniated disc. Either way, it is not a fun situation. Keep in mind that it will usually go away over time if it is a mild case But, if it continues to longer than a week or becomes worse, seek medical care. Do not wait to get yourself the care you need!
In the past, treatment has involved various more invasive options. Often it would be pain medications, muscle relaxers, physical therapy, and even surgery. However, the chiropractic approach is to carefully direct and control pressure to remove the interference from spinal structures. Research shows that when treated with chiropractic adjustments, Sciatica has an 8-9% greater rate of recovery than if patients were to use therapy or standard medical care. These chiropractic adjustments can be quite effective in reducing nerve irritation and its associated pain. As a result, the restoration of normal spinal function through conservative chiropractic care truly makes a difference.
