Sciatica Treatment with our Beverly Hills Chiropractor
Some chronic pain syndromes can sneak up on you for no apparent reason -- and to add insult to injury, they may register symptoms in a different part of the body than their origin point. This is the case with the annoying and often debilitating syndrome known as sciatica. Those symptoms you're experiencing in your buttock, leg or foot may actually be stemming from nerve compression in your lower spinal column.
Fortunately, either Beverly Hills chiropractor at Chiro-Integrative Health Center can help you overcome this challenge through natural, non-surgical treatment.
Understanding Sciatic Nerve Root Impingement
The sciatic nerve is a big nerve -- and that means it can cause big problems when it becomes inflamed, impinged, or irritated. This nerve runs all the way through the buttock and down the back of the leg, feeding nerve impulses to all the subsidiary nerves in that extremity. The sciatic nerves connect to the spinal cord through several nerve roots in the lumbar and sacral spine. If any structure presses against these nerve roots, at least some of the signals to sciatica will be blocked or scrambled. This causes the symptoms of sciatica. In addition to low back pain, you may experience pains, tingling feelings, loss of sensation, or muscle control problems anywhere in your buttock, leg or foot.
While sciatica may occur as a side effect of an acute injury that leaves you with herniated discs or spinal dislocations, it may also seem to appear for no reason at all, especially as you approach middle age. The underlying cause may be bulging discs that protrude onto the sciatic nerve roots or alter your spinal alignment. Chronic poor posture, obesity, congenital imbalances, and weak muscles can also contribute.
