The Recurring Agony of Sciatica
Sciatica is most accurately referred to a syndrome, a recognized set of symptoms related to a common underlying cause or trigger. In this case, that trigger is impingement of the largest nerve in the human body. The sciatic nerve extends from the base of the spine through the hip and buttock into the leg. This nerve, which is about as thick as your thumb, branches into all the subsidiary nerves that conduct sensory and motor information throughout the hip, leg and foot. Interfere with the sciatic nerve's function by shutting off the flow of information, and you may experience the results in any of the nerves further down the extremity. Symptoms of sciatica include:
- Sharp pains or distracting aches down the back of the leg
- Lower back pain
- Numbness in the leg or foot
- Tingling, "electric," "pins and needles" sensations
- Weakness, balance problems, or loss of control in the buttock, leg or foot
Why does impingement of the sciatic nerve occur? In some individuals, a sudden jolt sustained in an auto accident injury, sports injury or other personal injury can dislodge vertebrae and cause the vertebral discs to rupture, with the discs' inner material pushing on the nerve roots that connect the sciatic nerve to the spine. But most sciatica sufferers simply begin to experience recurring bouts of the problem after the age of 30 due to degenerative spinal changes such as bulging discs, stenosis, or weak back muscles that promote poor posture.
Natural Answers From Your Chiropractor in Orlando
Sciatica may seem to go away and leave you alone, but it will keep coming back until you do something about its underlying cause. Your chiropractor in Orlando, Dr. Rose or Dr. Suhar, can examine your spine to see exactly which nerve roots are being impinged. Precisely-targeted chiropractic adjustments from your Orlando chiropractor can shift spinal structures back into a more optimal alignment -- and away from those sensitive sciatic nerve roots. Non-surgical spinal decompression can draw bulging or herniated discs away from the sciatic nerve tissue and back into their accustomed positions within the spinal column. If postural issues or weakness are encouraging bouts of sciatica, your Orlando chiropractor may prescribe corrective exercises to help you strengthen your back.
