Solving Sciatica

Chiropractic care for sciaticaSciatica is not a disease. It is a chronic symptom of poor spinal health. There are usually more than 3M cases per year, and as many as 40% of people will have sciatica at some point in their lifetime!

The root cause of sciatica is improper maintenance of spinal health and a lack of motion in the joint tissue. This lack of mobility creates herniated discs and inflammation.

Some symptoms commonly experienced along with sciatic nerve pain include numbness, tingling, or leg cramps.

When we lose proper motion in the joint, we lose the hydraulic mechanism that:

  • keeps your spine well oiled
  • gives your nervous system healthy breathing room
  • gives your nervous system the ability to work synergistically with the brain
  • causes essential body systems to lose proper function (digestion, detox, immunity, etc.)

Worst of all, when we lose that hypermobility, the abundance of inflammation creates irritation and pain… in this case a painful sensation that normally radiates down a single leg. Nerves that exit the lumbar plexus (lower back) pass through the hips and buttocks, down each leg, creating an occasional, or constant pain, usually at an excruciating level.

A few common quick fixes are:

  • Special pillows
  • Stretching
  • Injections

Unfortunately, these fixes just treat the symptoms when really the problem originates from misalignments and stressed nerves.

So, what’s the solution, then? How do you finally find relief?

You must address the nerve root irritation by realigning the spine. When we adjust and properly align the spine to its natural curve and mechanism, nerves are free to function and inflammation is lowered. Since sciatica is an issue with spinal health, it can easily be prevented with regular adjustments.
