What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition caused by inflammation of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back through the buttocks and down the back of each leg. This inflammation can occur when the nerve becomes irritated or compressed.

There are several common causes of sciatica, including misalignments or subluxations in the lumbar spine that place pressure on the nerve roots (L4, L5, S1). Disc issues, such as bulges or herniations, can also push on a nerve root and lead to sciatic pain. Additionally, tightness in the piriformis muscle in the hip can contribute to this condition.

Recognizing the Symptoms

Sciatica typically presents with a range of symptoms, including pain, tingling, numbness, or burning sensations. These sensations often radiate from the low back area, down the back of the thigh, and may extend all the way to the knee, calf, ankle, or foot. The pain follows the pathway of the sciatic nerve, which can cause discomfort and limit mobility.

How We Evaluate and Diagnose

At Oak Creek Relief & Wellness, our team begins with a comprehensive examination to evaluate the underlying causes of your sciatica. During this initial assessment, our Oak Creek chiropractors will carefully assess your lower back, hips, and lower extremities using a variety of techniques.

Range of motion tests, orthopedic maneuvers, and palpation will help us identify the source of pain and nerve irritation. In some cases, X-rays of the lumbar spine may be taken to provide a clearer picture of the condition.

Tailored Treatment Options

Treatment for sciatica depends on the severity of your condition and its underlying causes. Our chiropractors will create a personalized treatment plan designed to address your specific needs and provide effective relief.

Chiropractic adjustments play a crucial role in correcting misalignments that may be placing pressure on the sciatic nerve roots. These gentle and precise adjustments help restore normal spinal function and alleviate nerve irritation.

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, we may incorporate passive modalities such as electric muscle stimulation or traction to further reduce pain and inflammation. These therapies can provide immediate relief while supporting the healing process.

To promote long-term recovery, we will also guide you through stretches and exercises that target the affected area. These exercises are specifically designed to improve flexibility, strengthen supportive muscles, and prevent future episodes of sciatica.

If your sciatica is caused by disc issues, it’s important to understand that these cases often take longer to resolve. The body needs time to heal the disc, and our goal is to reduce pain and inflammation through chiropractic care while allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
