Sciatica from low back

Home / Blair & Chapman Chiropractic Robina / Sciatica from low back
Sciatica may occur when this specific nerve is compressed, irritated, or inflamed.  Although, sciatic pain includes any pain that begins in your back or buttocks and moves down the back of your leg, sometimes as far as your foot and toes. Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the leg may also occur.  The Chiropractors at Blair and Chapman Chiropractic in Robina have a special interest in the treatment of sciatica.
Effects of Sciatic Pain

The effects of sciatic pain can interfere with every aspect of your life.  Everyday normal duties become a chore when suffering from sciatic pain; even simple tasks such as getting out of bed, coughing sneezing or even using the bathroom can be a painful experience.  Those who have experienced acute Sciatic pain understand how debilitating it can be, affecting every aspect of your personal and professional life.  The emotional effects can also be devastating as the pain restricts your ability to truly enjoy life.

Sciatica’s damage may be an accumulation of a lifetime of neglect and improper care of the lumbar spine.  With this in mind, it is ideal that proper care and maintenance of the lumbar spine be utilised in an attempt to prevent Sciatica from ever taking place.  This means that warning signs need to be heeded such as stiffness in the low back, aching after sitting and intermittent burning or numbness. When Sciatica is first suspected, it is crucial that care begin immediately to prevent permanent damage or damage that requires dangerous invasive medical attention.

Many times people with sciatica wait until the pain becomes unbearable before they contact the chiropractor. Waiting can cause long-term damage. It is important that you contact your chiropractor when the pain originally begins. The first thing your chiropractor will do is review your complete health history to determine when the problem began and the possible causes. Then a complete physical and chiropractic exam is performed, and x-rays may be taken. Your chiropractor will review and discuss the results with you and make recommendations for care.

The Chiropractic approach does not cover up the symptoms associated with Sciatica, but actually finds and takes care of the underlying causes. If nerve supply is altered at all it must be restored so the body can repair and function optimally. Along with proper chiropractic adjustments, a program of rehabilitation is prescribed to maximise soft tissue healing and to build strength and stability to the area to prevent future injuries.
