With more than 3 million cases in the United States each year, sciatica is a very common ailment. Sciatic nerve pain is not an easy feat, but thankfully sciatica responds very well to chiropractic treatment from Total Body in Bend. The key to sciatica chiropractic treatment is finding and addressing the underlying cause of the sciatic pain.

Sciatica is not a medical condition on its own. It is symptomatic nerve pain from a pinched nerve, associated with an underlying issue or injury.

Sciatica Symptoms:

  • Muscle pain
  • Burning sensation
  • Numbness or tingling in the hip, buttocks, thigh, or lower leg
  • Lower back pain can be a symptom sometimes, but it is not always present.

From low back pain to leg pain, the patient can feel mild to extreme pain, and it is important to reach out to chiropractor help for pain management. This pain you feel originates in the sciatic nerve, the largest and longest nerve in your body. Other than a chiropractic adjustment and other chiropractic care, you may need to seek a doctor for medicine or physical therapy if you are having these symptoms.

Sciatica Causes and Treatment:

Sciatica can be caused by herniated spinal discs, disc degeneration, disc injury, lumbar spine or sacroiliac joint dysfunction, pregnancy, or piriformis syndrome. Your Bend chiropractor will work to isolate and treat the underlying issue for nerve pain relief. Your sciatica pain treatment will depend on the cause of your sciatica but will likely include a combination of therapies and a spinal adjustment for spinal decompression. Treating sciatica can be hard, but we are here for your sciatica pain relief.
