Relieve Your Sciatica With Chiropractic

man with back painSciatica is a condition that involves pain originating from your lower back or buttocks. It travels down your thigh, into your lower leg and even to your foot. The discomfort may be a mild ache or a more debilitating form of pain. At Lindenwoods Chiropractic, we help sciatica sufferers find relief, correction and long-term results.

What Is Sciatica?

Several nerves of your body combine in the low back to form the sciatic nerve. This nerve then travels down your legs. When the sciatic nerve is irritated, you’ll feel pain all along with it. You might also experience numbness or tingling. Sciatica can involve one or both sides of your body.

The Many Sources of Sciatica

One of the problems people have with sciatica is not knowing what the source of their pain is. The most common reasons for sciatica include

  • Arthritis
  • Disc injuries
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Pressure in the low back
  • Priori injury
  • Tightness in the low back
People with a sedentary lifestyle have a high risk of sciatica. Sitting during your workday or relaxing on the sofa for hours watching television causes that stress in the low back. In turn, it puts pressure on the sciatic nerve.

How We’ll Find the Cause of Your Pain

When you have your first appointment with us, we perform a thorough examination. During this process, we can uncover why you’re having sciatic pain. Once determined, we’ll give you specific adjustments to correct your condition. You’ll also receive individual stretches and exercises to help you get better fast.

Each person receives a customized map of care that details everything we’ll do to help you. No two plans are alike at our office.
