Do You Have Sciatica? How Chiropractic Sciatica Treatment Can Help
The largest nerve in the body is the sciatic nerve. It can be up to three-quarters of an inch in diameter and runs from the lower back to the lower leg.
It makes sense, then, that when this nerve is pinched, a lot of pain can result.
But is pain the only symptom? Read on to find out more about this and to learn which sciatica treatment in Tampa or Holiday is best.
What’s Causing Your Pain? Common Signs and Symptoms of Sciatica
Diabetic nerve pain or other conditions can often mimic some of the symptoms of sciatica nerve pain. So, how can you tell what’s causing your pain? Here are some common symptoms of sciatica. If you have any of these, you should see a Holiday or Tampa chiropractor ASAP.
- The pain is limited to one side leg and/or buttocks
- You feel tingling, prickling, or burning
- Your lower back/hips hurt
- You experience weakness/numbness in one leg
- You experience pain relief only when you lay down.
How Chiropractic Sciatica Treatment Can Reduce Painful Symptoms
Sciatica pain is the result of nerve impingement or compression. This can result from:
- Bulging/herniated disc
- Narrowing of the spine
- Tumors along the spine
A chiropractor can successfully treat sciatica pain. With gentle adjustments, the spine is realigned, eliminating the compression and reducing pain.
