Sciatica Treatment Q & A

What is sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is a long nerve that emerges from your lower spine and runs down the back of each leg, into the soles of your feet. Sometimes the sciatic nerve becomes compressed, impinged, or irritated; this condition is called sciatica.

What are the symptoms of sciatica?

If you have sciatica, you may experience pain that shoots down your leg, numbness, and tingling. Your symptoms may range from mild to severe, and they may be constant or intermittent. Usually, sciatica only affects one side of the body, but sometimes it can alternate sides or be present on both sides at the same time.

What causes sciatica?

A wide range of conditions can contribute to the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. Some conditions that may cause sciatica include:

  • Pregnancy
  • Herniated discs
  • Bone spurs
  • Obesity

Jobs that require prolonged sitting or that put stress on the lower back may cause sciatica. Being overweight or obese, or leading a sedentary lifestyle, may also contribute to the condition.

How is sciatica diagnosed?

Your experienced chiropractor at Chiropractic Health Care Center Of Glendora performs a physical evaluation to determine the exact cause of your sciatica. In addition to a comprehensive physical exam, innovative posture analysis technology and X-rays are used to obtain the most accurate diagnosis.
