Sciatica Q & A
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a condition that causes pain in the lower back, down the back of the leg, and into the foot. The condition makes sitting and standing for long periods uncomfortable and difficult. It can lead to weakness, tingling, and numbness in the leg and foot. If left untreated, sciatica pain can grow worse and the nerve can become permanently injured.
How Do You Develop Sciatica?
Several factors can lead to sciatica. The most common causes of sciatica are disc injuries and bulges. In this instance, the disc presses against the nerve root causing the issue. Disc injuries can be the result of bad posture, repetitive use, and accidents. Misalignments in the spine can also cause sciatica due to postural issues from pregnancy or trauma. Some patients have stated they simply bent over and felt acute pain register suddenly. In reality, the spinal condition was probably developing for quite some time before the triggering incident occurred.
What is the Chiropractic Treatment for Sciatica?
Dr. Troy Coonrad at Palamone Chiropractic is trained extensively to zero in on the exact source of sciatica. Dr. Troy works with the patient in determining the best approach to treatment. After a thorough assessment of the patient's unique issues, treatment is started with gentle adjustments. This will allow the body to recover its natural alignment. Some people respond to treatment very quickly, while others take more time to recover. Recovery will depend on the condition of the disc or the joints that need to be corrected. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took to create it. Once the positioning of the spine and discs is improved, patients often feel a better quality of overall health.
