Sciaitca is commonly referred to as pain in the lower back radiating into the thigh, often down the leg and to outer toes. The Sciaitic nerve provides many functions portions of the thighs, legs and feet. Sciatica can be caused by compression or the inflammation of the sciatic nerve leaving spinal canal.
This can be due to spinal stenosis, disc degeneration or disc protrusion which all create changes in the spine which in turn create an environment that can cause or make episodes of Sciatica more likely.
Motor vehicle accidents, sports injuries, or falls may cause direct injury to the sciatic nerve. Sciatica can also be caused by something outside the spine that ultimately irritates the sciatica nerve as well.
For example, a large wallet worn in the same back pocket of a professional a truck driver for days over years. This causes direct pressure on the sciatic nerve that passes through the muscles just above this wallet in the thigh.
Sciatica is treatable and correctable with chiropractic, therapeutic stretches, physiotherapy and massage.
We locate and detect areas of the spine and body that cause Sciatica. Once the source is determined through a detailed exam then our chiropractors will utilize chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy modalities, therapeutic stretches and exercises to correct the underlying cause of the problem at any of our San Diego chiropractic office locations.
