Sciatica, also called lumbar radiculopathy, is a term that describes symptoms of pain, numbness, and/or weakness that radiate along the sciatic nerve from the lower back to the buttocks and leg. The pain from sciatica can range from a constant, dull pain to a debilitating condition. Most of sciatica symptoms result from lower back disorders between the L4 (fourth lumbar vertebra) and S1 (first sacral) levels that put pressure on or cause irritation to a lumbar nerve root. Depending on where the sciatic nerve roots are compressed, symptoms may be felt in different areas of the leg and into the foot. Most commonly, sciatica is caused by a disc problem, such as a herniated disc that is pressing against a nerve root. It can also occur when a disc degenerates, which releases inflammatory proteins that irritate the adjacent nerve. There are also times when hypertonic hip muscles, most often the lateral hip rotator piriformis muscle, compress the sciatic nerve resulting in sciatica pain. Sciatica symptoms are typically felt on only one side of the body. They may include a combination of leg and foot pain, weakness, tingling or numbness. For treatment of your 11570 sciatica, your best chance of recovery is with our team at North Park Chiropractic Center, who offer non-operative options.
Depending upon the cause and severity of your 11570 sciatica, our team, along with your input, will recommend a number of non-operative treatment plans to address your sciatica. The vast majority of the time, sciatic pain can be relieved through chiropractic adjustments, stretches, and deep tissue massage of the gluteal muscles. Specific exercises are necessary for the complete remission of sciatic and often accompany proper Chiropractic treatment. Give us a call today to discuss your choices to treat your sciatica and get back on your feet again soon enjoying the activities you like to do.
