Sciatica

Chiropractic Care for Sciatica at Genesis Chiropractic Functional Health

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve of the human body, traveling from the lower back, down the leg, and into the foot. Injury to this nerve at any point along its path can lead to pain and other symptoms that can negatively impact daily life. Chiropractic care can help to relieve symptoms without strong drugs or invasive procedures. At Genesis Chiropractic Functional Health in Long Beach, we offer treatment for sciatica and can help prevent it from reoccurring.

Sciatica Symptoms

Sciatica may exhibit diverse symptoms, such as lower back pain, a sharp pain on one side of the body when moving, pain that radiates into the hip or down the legs, numbness, tingling, and weakness on the affected side of the body. Pain can be intermittent or continuous. Patients may feel a sharp, electric shock when changing positions or a continually nagging discomfort in the affected area.

What Causes Sciatica?

Compression of the sciatic nerve can result from a number of problems. Natural aging can cause degeneration of structures in the lower spine, which can then compress the nerve. Traumatic injuries can also lead to sciatic nerve pain. The physical and hormonal changes involved in pregnancy can also result in sciatic nerve problems. Obesity can put increasing pressure on the sciatic nerve. Smoking can cause nerve damage and sciatic nerve irritation.

How Our Chiropractor Can Help

After an examination and thorough assessment of your condition, our chiropractor will design a treatment plan that’s personalized to meet your recovery and overall wellness goals. Spinal adjustments are generally recommended to re-align spinal structures in the lower back, improve function, and relieve compression on nerves. In addition, our chiropractor will advise corrective exercises to improve muscle strength in the legs and lower back to alleviate your symptoms and improve your range of motion. We can teach you proper ergonomic measures to avoid compression of the sciatic nerve and help avoid discomfort long term.
