Pain that radiates down your leg – or possibly both legs – that’s Sciatica.
Lumbar spine pain may also be a part. The pain can radiate as low as your foot or toes but typically stops around the knee. Sciatica comes from nervous pressure that’s applied on one or all three of the lowest lumbar nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve. Sometimes there can be just pain or numbness and tingling with the pain.
Successful chiropractic treatment of sciatica can be simply adjusting the cause of the sciatica, the lower back, pelvis and sacrum. Pain and symptom relief can be felt as early as the first visit. Most people get sciatica after or during heavy lifting of things or people (children). Many pregnant women experience sciatica during their pregnancy because of the changes to their pelvis. Chiropractic care can help them throughout their pregnancy.
