Sciatica Pain And Treatment

What is sciatica

Do I have a pinched nerve?
What about a slipped disc?
We have all heard of “sciatica” and sometimes we think we have it but is it really sciatica?

Your sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body, about the width of your thumb. It carries messages from your brain through your spine to your legs, as well relay messages from those areas back to your brain.

SCIATICA SYMPTOMS INCLUDE:

PAIN IN YOUR LOWER BACK AND HIP

NUMBNESS, TINGLING IN YOUR LEG

TROUBLE SITTING, BENDING

Sciatica Treatment

Sciatica pain relief begins with conservative care with your chiropractor or physiotherapist and can include:

  • Physiotherapy.
    • Manual therapy to restore movement
    • Electrical modalities for pain control
    • Exercise rehab including stretches for sciatica
    • Strengthening exercises
  • Chiropractic. Adjustments improve the movement and function of your spine, pelvis and hips. With less stress on your nervous system your body will be better able to repair
  • Posture. Avoid having a wallet in your back pocket
  • Nutrition. Supplements to reduce inflammation
  • Surgery. When conservative care is not successful, surgery can be an option
