When you think of seeing a chiropractor, you might think of a chiropractor treating someone that has been injured in an automobile accident. Although we do treat people who have been injured in automobile crashes, we also treat people suffering from other physical injuries, diseases, and illnesses.
At Lambert Chiropractic Health Centre in Mississauga, ON, we take care of you as a whole. Optimized health care can be important essential for your physical well-being. One of the most common types of back pain we treat in our office is sciatica. Sciatic nerve damage affects not only your lower back, but also the other parts of the body that are in alignment or within close proximity of the affected area, such as down your leg.
What Causes Sciatica Nerve Pain?
When the back is injured, or with some illness and diseases, the spine in the lower back becomes affected by the impact.
A herniated disc or slipped disc causes pressure on the root of the sciatic nerve that runs down the leg from the low back, thus creating back pain. Irritation, pinched nerves, and inflammation are other issues in the body that may contribute to sciatic pain.
What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica Nerve Pain?
Sciatica back pain affects areas that you would not believe are associated with the sciatica part of your body. There are some symptoms that you need to look out for and may want to seek treatment for. This may include:
- Moderate to severe pain that starts in the lower back, and radiates down the buttocks and legs.
- numbness, and/or weakness in the buttocks, legs, back, or feet.
- The excruciating pain that worsens with prolonged sitting, and/or standing.
- Pain that worsens with any sudden movement or twisting or/and bending of the body.
- Pain following a sudden cough or sneeze makes the pain worse.
- A burning sensation in the affected area
