When someone has sciatic nerve pain, it may be mild pain that doesn't require treatment. However, it can also be moderate or severe. In these cases, pain relief treatment is needed for a better quality of life. The sciatic nerve is the longest in the body. When pressure is put on it or compressed, it can irritate the nerve and cause sciatica pain. This condition can cause back pain or pain in other areas of the sciatic nerve. It can also cause numbness in those areas or tingling. When sciatica pain is severe, it can significantly impact the patient's life. It can be debilitating pain to many patients. If you have sciatica, call Premier Wellness Chiropractic in Pasadena, CA, office to schedule your exam and treatment.
Sciatic Nerve Issues
When you have problems with the sciatic nerve and need treatment, we can locate this problem anywhere along the sciatic nerve. It's the longest nerve in the human body, and it starts in the lower back and often creates lower back pain. The nerve then goes beneath the hips and buttocks and into both legs. You may have pain in any of those areas, though pain is usually felt on one side of the body. Sciatica can make it painful to move and perform routine daily tasks. That's why treatment is so crucial for suffering patients.
Common Symptoms of Sciatica
The main symptom of sciatica is pain somewhere along the sciatic nerve. It can be anywhere from either leg's lower back to the calf. Sciatica can also cause tingling along the nerve or numbness. It can be hard to handle the pain of sciatica, and it can lower a patient's quality of life. A chiropractor can administer different types of treatment, so seek pain relief if you are living with this pain.
When the sciatic nerve has extra pressure, sciatica can develop. A herniated disk can cause this, as can a tumor or bone spur. Patients may also have spinal stenosis, a narrowing of their spine that compresses this nerve. If you have gained a lot of weight or are obese or pregnant, this can also put pressure on it. Some jobs can cause it if they require people to sit all day, twist their backs around often, bend over frequently, or carry large objects.
