#1: Sciatica is a symptom of a spinal misalignment. While sciatica itself is not a disorder, this condition is symptomatic of an undiagnosed spinal misalignment. For many patients, a herniated disc in the lower back is responsible for triggering their sciatica pain. An auto accident injury, an accidental slip and fall, or a sports injury could all have caused a disc in the lower back to slip out of alignment. Once this occurs, the disc may compress nearby nerves, such as the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is one of the body’s primary nerves. Pressure on the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the buttocks and legs, can trigger pain.
#3: Chiropractic adjustments are effective for back pain management. Chiropractic adjustments bring proper alignment back to the spine by creating space between the vertebrae. This reduces lower back compression and alleviates pressure on the sciatic nerve, which in turn alleviates back pain. Regular adjustments are an effective back pain management alternative to medication.
Has sciatica affected you? Have you considered chiropractic care for pain management?
