Your SW Calgary Choice for Sciatic Pain!

If you’ve ever experienced pain that radiates from your lower back, through your hips, and down your leg, you may have experienced Sciatica. Chiropractical is pleased to offer treatment options to deal with the pain associated with Sciatica.

What is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, starting in the lower back and running down the hips, buttocks, legs, and feet. Sciatica is characterized by pain that originates in the lower back or buttock, that travels into one or both legs.

What are the causes of Sciatica?

Researchers estimate that 90 percent of cases of sciatica are caused by a herniated disc where the nerve root is compressed – something that could be a result of injury, or age-related wear and tear. However, sciatica can develop for a number of different reasons, including:

  • An acute injury like a slip and fall
  • Repetitive wear and tear (e.g. shoveling snow or raking leaves)
  • An awkward motion, where the spine is momentarily vulnerable. This can be as sudden as a missed step
  • Pressure on the nerve from a disc bulge in the lower lumbar spine
  • Pressure on the nerve from a tight muscle like the piriformis muscle, located in the buttocks and near the top of the hip joint.

What are the Symptoms of Sciatic Pain?

  • Pain in the leg or rear that is worse when sitting
  • Burning or tingling running down the leg
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
  • Constant pain on one side of the rear
  • A shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up

Chiropractical regularly treats patients with sciatica, with great success. The treatment varies from patient to patient, based on how the injury happened and how well the patient responds to different forms of treatment. We look forward to assessing your situation and coming up with a successful treatment plan to deal with your sciatic pain.
