An Overview of Sciatica
Sciatica refers to the set of symptoms that it causes, such as radiating pain, pins and needle sensations, aggravated pain when sitting or standing up, leg or foot weakness, and numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation.
Pain from sciatica starts with the sciatic nerve, which is the largest nerve in the human body. This nerve runs from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and branches off to each leg. When the sciatic nerve gets pinched, compressed, or irritated, either by a nearby disc, injury, or something else, sciatica symptoms occur.
Sciatica can happen for several reasons, but for the most part, it is due to a herniated disc. A herniated disc can put pressure on the nerve root, which can bring forth one or many of the sciatica symptoms. Even though a herniated disc is typically the culprit, other problems can cause sciatica, such as disc degeneration, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, trauma, auto accidents, sports injuries, and muscle spams.
If you are looking for natural and non-invasive sciatic nerve pain treatment, the professionals at Dubuque Family Chiropractic are ready to assist you. We are trained and have the equipment to diagnose sciatica as well as various methods like spinal adjustments, massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, and more to help you alleviate your pain and symptoms of sciatica.
