Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jan 30, 2020 11:22:55 AM

Sciatica is the name given to pain caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve.

Anything that irritates this nerve can cause pain, ranging from mild to severe.

Sciatica is usually caused by a compressed nerve in the lower spine.

Sciatica is often confused with general back pain, but sciatica isn't limited to just the back.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and widest nerve in the entire human body, running from the lower back, through the buttocks, and down the legs, ending just below the knee.

The nerve controls several muscles in the lower legs and supplies sensation to the skin of the foot and the majority of your lower leg.

Sciatica is not a condition, but rather a symptom of another problem involving the sciatic nerve.

Experts estimate that up to 40% of people will experience sciatica at least once in their life.

Of so many people are at risk of experiencing sciatica, what are the best treatment options?

One of the most effective treatments is from a chiropractor.

In the article below, we will discuss sciatica and how chiropractic care can help ease your pain.
