Millions of Americans are affected by sciatica. While it can be a minor annoyance it could also develop into a very serious health issue. However, when people come into Sudbury Holistic Healing with lower back pain due to sciatic nerve pain, we are able to identify the issue and help these individuals find relief.
Symptoms Of Sciatica
The sciatic nerve travels from the lower back down to the hips, buttocks, legs, and feet, making it easy to identify and treat sciatic pain. While this pain usually only affects one side of the body, those suffering from sciatica may begin to experience symptoms all along where the sciatic nerve travels.
- Mild Ache
- Burning Sensation
- Sharp Pain
While the most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc, other causes of sciatica can be degenerative disc issues, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spine), bone spurs or tight piriformis muscles (in the buttock). The good news is, while these conditions usually occur as we age, Dr. Jennifer Lees can help prevent these conditions from occurring or improve these conditions with routine chiropractic care, and other all-natural, non-invasive treatments.
What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica, also known as Lumbar Radiculopathy, is usually caused when the sciatic nerve is receiving pressure from another source. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body and when pressure is applied to this nerve, people begin to experience pain everywhere the sciatic nerve travels. While this pain can range from mild to severe, it is important you get this pain checked out as soon as possible instead of waiting until the pain gets more unbearable.
