Understanding Sciatica and the Role Chiropractic Care Plays In Relief

Sciatica is just one of many issues that cause back pain, but it’s a common one. It can also lead to various other symptoms, some of which can make movement or even sitting uncomfortable. Below, Dr. Castaldi and the team at Holistic Health Care Natural Nutrition & Chiropractic Center in Eastchester, NY, explain sciatica, the various symptoms it causes, and how chiropractic care can help.

What Is Sciatica, Anyway?

Calling sciatica a condition or injury is not quite accurate. It’s a term used for symptoms caused by another issue – the sciatic nerve being compressed.

The sciatic nerve is the longest in your body, as it is present from the lower back to the feet. Usually, an issue such as a herniated disc or muscle injury leads to pressure on the nerve, keeping it from functioning properly. This leads to symptoms such as:

  • Lower back pain, hip pain, and pain in the leg
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the legs or feet
  • Burning sensations

The pain can be anything from a dull but constant ache to sharp, shooting pains.

These symptoms can also indicate various other issues and injuries, but there is one thing that makes it stand out as sciatic nerve compression. You won’t feel the symptoms on both sides of the body – only on the side where the compression is present.

Finding Relief From Sciatica

Most people find some relief from their symptoms through small changes, such as changing the position they are sitting in or walking around for a few minutes. Such actions take pressure off the nerve. However, the relief is temporary.

Chiropractic care is vital for lasting relief. Your chiropractor will determine where the compression lies and what is causing it. A treatment plan will be developed with the focus of eliminating the issue causing the compression.

The first step is typically to restore alignment to the spine through spinal adjustments. Proper alignment means that any undue pressure on the discs or muscles is removed, which in turn removes pressure from the nerve.

Soft tissue techniques are typically employed to address tension and damage in the muscles and discs. Additionally, targeted exercises are often used to strengthen the core muscles so that they can provide proper spinal support.
