What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a debilitating condition that affects the lower back and legs. Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve runs from the lower back to the feet. Sciatica symptoms include leg pain, back pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected leg. These symptoms can last for days or weeks.

That's why we offer specialized treatment options to help alleviate your pain and improve your quality of life. Our team of chiropractors will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your specific needs.
Some of our treatment options for sciatica include spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and physical therapy exercises. We also offer lifestyle recommendations to help prevent future episodes of sciatica.
What Causes Sciatica?
Several factors can lead to sciatica, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and spondylolisthesis.
Herniated discs are one of the most common causes of sciatica. They occur when the soft center of a spinal disc bulges out through a tear in the outer layer and puts pressure on surrounding nerves. Spinal stenosis is another cause of sciatica that results from spinal canal narrowing due to age-related changes or other medical conditions.
It's also possible to develop sciatica from car injuries, sports, auto accidents, and pregnant women can also develop sciatica. Sedentary desk jobs or physically intense jobs that require a lot of standing can also pose a risk for sciatica. Middle-aged men and smokers are also at higher risk for sciatica.
