About Sciatica

For those struggling with sciatica it is definitely a pain in the butt. Sciatica is a pain that generally runs down a person’s glutes and into their legs. Most of the time it’ll result in significant pain, pins and needles tingling, numbness or loss of sensation, and can even feel like weakness in their legs. 

There’s a lot of different conditions that can result in sciatic pain for people. This includes degenerative disc disease, spondylosis, spinal stenosis, and even lumbar (lower spinal bones) herniated discs. This discomfort can also come about when the piriformis muscle, which is located deep in the glute, becomes irritated and puts pressure specifically on that sciatic nerve. This pain can occur when a person is standing, sitting or even walking.

Many times when somebody is struggling with sciatica they may try stretching to relieve the pain. However we know that when there is a misalignment in the lower lumbar spine or if the pelvis is misaligned that can put pressure directly onto the sciatic nerve which then results in those aches and pains.

So if you have been struggling with sciatica and have tried stretching at home but not finding any relief give our office a call and we can see if there is something happening in the lower part of your spine. 

Getting to the root cause allows your body to heal quicker and allows you to be feeling better quicker!

Patient Experience

Daniel came into Paramount Health with sciatic nerve pain and scoliosis. His sciatic pain was so severe some days that he couldn’t put weight on his leg. He had been to his primary doctor and was taking Flexeril, but decided to try chiropractic care. After coming to Paramount Health Chiropractic Daniel understood that his spinal cord controls everything within his body, the nerves that exit from your lower spine go down into your hips, down your legs all the way to your feet. When there are misalignments in the lower spine they can put pressure on the nerves that exit which can lead to pain, discomfort in the sciatic nerve. He had his doubts about it but improved 30% within a month of care. Daniel continues to be seen and is seeing improvement in his health every month! With every adjustment Daniel’s brain is able to communicate better with his body and his body is functioning better upon every visit! His wife also comes in for her neck and hips. His first impressions of Paramount were excellent. He reports, ” Everyone is always happy.” He says chiropractic has helped him and that he would recommend it to others.
