The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It begins in your lower back and branches off into your hip, buttock, leg and feet bilaterally. Pressure on the sciatic nerve due to a herniated disc, bone spur or spinal stenosis causes pain. The pain typically occurs only on one side of your body, and is often worsened by sitting, standing, walking, and bending backwards. It can also be affected by coughing, sneezing and laughing. Usually, a herniated or a bulging disc in your low back is to blame.
Most Common Causes of Sciatica
- Herniated Disc
- Bulging Disc
- Bone Spurs
- Spinal Stenosis
How We Help Sciatica: Non-Surgical Solutions
The information we gain from your consultation and exam helps us determine if you are a candidate for care in our office. You can expect to have improved movement, decreased low back pain, thigh pain, leg pain, and foot pain and increased muscle strength. Rather than simply treating the symptoms, our doctors provide a long-term strategy to not only get the relief that you seek right away, but also prevent future spinal decay.
If you have had radiographs or MRIs taken before, please bring them with you to your appointment for our doctors to review. We see many patients that have failed other treatments such as prescription medications, physical therapy, and even surgery.
Don’t lose hope! We treat many patients successfully with our state-of-the-art spinal decompression technology and upper cervical care.
