Sciatica is a painful and often debilitating problem that originates in the discs of the lower back. It worsens with standing or sitting and even coughing, laughing or sneezing can cause discomfort. Discs that have been traumatized in some way can bulge, crowding nearby nerves and causing inflammation and irritation. If ignored, the nerve pain will spread down one or both legs the length of the sciatic nerves.
Chiropractic adjustments can increase joint motion in the lower back, often with impressive results. An exam and consultation will let you know if we will be able to help.
This condition is usually the result of some type of trauma or cumulative damage. Issues such as excess weight, bad posture, spinal decay and bone spurs or poor muscle tone can initiate the problem. Even the act of reaching or bending over can generate an episode.
his is a common response. Since our bodies can adapt to numerous situations and stresses, it is not unusual for a simple event like picking up something from the floor to trigger an episode of extreme pain.
