A Pain in the Bottom

Sciatica. It’s characterized by a pinching, twinging feeling at the bottom of your spine. You might have trouble sitting down, and sometimes the pain shoots up or down, depending on your movement.

As many as 40% of people will have sciatica at some point in their lives. Pain caused by sciatica may start in the lower back or hip and radiate out to your thigh and into your leg. 

Manual adjustments and massage can help relieve your sciatica. Sometimes, patients will require multiple visits to eliminate their pain and get back on their feet.

Get started on treating your sciatica pain with a visit to our office.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica, also called radiculopathy, is caused by a protruding or herniated disc in your spine pressing on the nerves in your lumbar spine. People with sciatica may experience pain when they move, sneeze, or cough, and may have weakness, pins and needles, numbness, or a burning or tingling sensation in their legs.

People between the ages of 30–50 are more likely to develop sciatica as a result of aging or ongoing pressure on the lower back.

Although it isn’t very common, sciatica can also develop during pregnancy. 50–80% of women experience back pain during pregnancy. Sometimes, this is due to a herniated disc, which can pinch the sciatic nerve, causing discomfort.

How Can I Treat Sciatica?

Sometimes, sciatica will resolve itself on its own. Other times, you may require assistance from a trained health professional, like a chiropractor. Our team can help create an effective treatment plan to find the cause of your sciatica and resolve your discomfort through manual adjustments, exercise, massage therapy, and lifestyle changes.

If you have a pinched nerve in your back, you shouldn’t hesitate to see a chiropractor. At your appointment, your chiropractor will complete a health assessment of your back and help identify any issue you are having. The sooner you visit a chiropractor, the quicker you may find a solution.
