What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a symptom caused from a pinched nerve in your lower spine. These nerves are known as the sciatic nerves. If these nerves get compressed due to an injury, overuse or a genetic malformation of the spine, you experience lower back pain and radiating leg pain. For instance, if you have a herniated disc in which the cushion material between the discs begins to leak, the small area from which the nerves pass through is compromised by the leaking disc. This pressure on the nerves causes pain.
Our chiropractors are able to reposition the vertebrae to reduce the pressure and alleviate your pain. Or, if you have suffered a sports injury that has shifted your lower back out of alignment, the sciatic nerve bundle may be compressed. Chiropractic care repositions your lower back into proper alignment to lessen your pain.
