Find out more about chiropractic care for sciatica

If you suffer from sciatica, you're not alone. Many people experience the pain of sciatica, without ever seeking help. Often, the problem worsens if appropriate treatment is not received.

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. It originates from the lumbar spinal cord and extends down the leg. This long nerve controls sensations you feel in your thighs and legs as well as muscle movement in the lower legs.

The team at The Back Clinic may be able to diagnose sciatica with a physical and neurological examination. Sometimes, diagnostic imaging or nerve tests can be used to help with diagnosis. We may also refer to other practitioners as required. 

 

What Does Sciatica Feel Like?

Many people commonly experience pain in the lower back, hip and down the leg. The pain can range from slight discomfort to unbearable pain. You may also experience tingling or numbness down the leg. Some members comment that all they did was bend the wrong way or pick something up and they felt pain. What may have happened is that their condition developed over time and a simple movement is enough to set of a 'health crisis'.

The good news is that we can help to identify the cause of your pain and provide recommendations on how to address it.

 

Common Causes of Sciatica

Many factors can contribute to sciatic pain, including:

  • lumbar (low back) disc herniation, pressing on the nerve
  • abnormal hip/spine alignment
  • ‘pinched’ nerve irritation or inflammation from disc pressure
  • muscle tightening, pulling your structure out of alignment
  • injury and trauma
  • pregnancy and associated pressure on the sciatic nerve

If you are concerned about nerve pain, posture or back pain while pregnant, get in touch with Dr. Alissar Ayouby (Chiropractor) today.

 

Can chiropractic help with Sciatica/nerve pain radiating down the leg?

Can chiropractic adjustments help with sciatica? According to the UK Evidence Report 2010, there is inconclusive favourable evidence in support of chiropractic care for this condition. It is accepted that chiropractic may be able to help manage symptoms often associated with sciatica (e.g. muscular tension, posture) rather than treating the condition itself.
