Sciatica is a condition that originates in the lower back and can cause pain in the hips, legs, and feet. The pain can be intermittent or constant, and finding relief from sciatica isn't always easy. At Chiropractic Wellness Center in Newcastle, we offer sciatica treatment to provide relief from lower back pain, allowing you to go about your routines without the fear of unexpected pain. Here's an overview of what sciatica is and how chiropractic treatment can help.


Sciatica is More Than Lower Back Pain

Sciatica occurs when one or more vertebrae in the lumbar spine fall out of their normal alignment, exerting pressure on the roots of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve roots exit from between the vertebrae in the lumbar spine, connecting into one nerve branch that travels through the pelvis and hip region before reaching the feet.

When one or more vertebrae in the lumbar spine shift due to a bulging disc, arthritis, or other issues, they can pinch the sciatic nerve root. This pinching action triggers the nerve to send out a pain signal, manifesting as a sharp shock, tingling, numbness, or dull pain. Different types of pain can be experienced in the same area, and it can either be constant or intermittent.

Where and How Sciatica Strikes

Sciatica pain can result from various causes, and even simple movements can trigger it. The vertebrae can fluctuate with movement, lifting off the nerve root and then compressing it again. This means that you may experience relief from sciatica in one moment, only to have it return unexpectedly. The pain can manifest in the lower back, hip, thigh, knee, calf, or feet.

The unpredictable nature of sciatica makes it challenging to anticipate when it will strike, and its presentation doesn't always follow a logical path. If you're experiencing sciatica, the best course of action is to schedule an appointment with our chiropractor for sciatica treatment.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Maxwell and her team are really great. I love that she takes the time to really figure out what is going on with me and genuinely CARES about my health and well-being. I have been going to her for years. I had been hurting SO badly with chronic pain due to illness and debilitating migraines and she got me in right away, and adjusted me gently since it had been a while; even this gentle (but thorough) adjustment had me feeling 100times better than I've been for weeks. I can't brag enough. I have always felt so good after her adjustments. I'll be making the drive from Mukilteo to Newcastle just to continue to receive treatment from her and Dr Stephanie every week."
