Sciatica occurs when pain radiates along the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts in the low back, traveling through your hips and down each leg. Sciatica usually affects one leg, but it can affect both.
At Diamond Chiropractic in Omaha, Dr. Nilles will determine the exact cause of your sciatica. He will develop a treatment plan to reduce your symptoms quickly. This plan also helps prevent the condition from reoccurring again. Fast relief from sciatic nerve pain is our goal when treating this condition.
Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Pain
Pressure on the sciatic nerve causes low back, thigh, and lower leg pain. In addition, this causes muscle weakness and decreased range of motion in the back.
Pain from sciatica varies. It ranges from a mild ache to sharp, burning pain. Sometimes it feels like an electric shock. It can worsen when you cough, sneeze, and after sitting or standing for long periods of time.
Causes of Sciatic Nerve Pain
Most people develop sciatic nerve pain because of a bulged or herniated disc. This is not always the case.
Sciatic nerve pain occurs for a variety of reasons. The most common cause is pressure on other nerves in the low back, not just one. Sciatica can occur from lifting injuries or auto accidents, too. For women, it can appear during pregnancy.
Since sciatica occurs differently for each patient, it’s best to visit a trained chiropractor.
