Do you frequently feel a sharp, persistent pain in your lower back? Does that pain sometimes radiate to other areas of the body—particularly along the spine? If so, then you may be suffering from a chiropractic condition known as sciatica. Here at Injury Wellness Specialists of Georgia, we have years of experience in diagnosis, treating, and managing the symptoms of sciatica. Ultimately, our goal is to help our patients lead happier and healthier lives free of pain.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a common chiropractic condition where there is excessive pressure or tension placed on the sciatic nerve, which is located along the lower back. The added pressure may be caused by a herniated disc, a spine that's out of alignment, back trauma, or any number of other factors. When that nerve is irritated, the pain radiates across the lower back and, in many cases, will even spread to other areas of the body such as the hips, shoulders, and neck.
Symptoms of Sciatica
The most common sciatica symptom is that of back pain. Unfortunately, because there are many possible causes of back pain (ranging from poor posture to injury and everything in between), very few people tend to attribute the pain to sciatica right away. Instead, they may live with the pain for weeks, months, or even longer before they decide to seek help from a specialist.
Sciatica Treatment Options
The good news is that there are sciatica treatment options available that can help relieve your pain and treat the root cause. The first step to coming up with a treatment plan. Schedule an appointment with our experienced and skilled chiropractor to see what treatment options are appropriate. He or she will be able to evaluate your condition, take X-rays if needed, and assess your symptoms to determine the cause.
In many cases, a compressed spine can cause excess pressure on the sciatic nerve. This is where a treatment known as spinal decompression can come in handy, relieving that pressure and restoring balance between the spine and the discs between your vertebrae. In some cases, spinal adjustment and/or massage therapy sessions may also be recommended to fully treat the cause of your sciatica and relieve your pain.
Many patients report an immediate improvement after just one session with their trusted chiropractor. If you've been suffering from sciatica pain that's affecting your life, seeing a chiropractic professional is one of the best decisions you can make.
