Sciatica Treatment and Relief

Sciatica treatment is specialized to meet your needs. At Back Care Chiropractic we have been specializing in sciatic nerve pain for over a decade. The term itself refers to pain that is caused by damage, trauma, or other stressors acting upon the sciatic nerve. This nerve originates within the spine and comes together as a conglomeration of five spinal nerves. Every person has two of these nerves, with one running down each leg. While this disorder can be extremely painful, it has the tendency to manifest itself in other ways. Generalized numbness of the lower extremities, especially on one side is common. Weakness in the lower limbs is another common complaint. Small vibrations or tingles can also be felt. In the most extreme cases, patients will find one, or both legs, difficult to move. Pain caused by this disorder tends to show up most severely in the lower back and buttocks. Pain in other parts of the leg, and even extending down into the foot are also common. Patients often misconstrue the word itself as a ailment that they are suffering from. However, sciatica refers to symptoms rather than a diagnosis. What is actually causing the pain the real question, not what area the pain is originating from. We are the local experts in treating sciatic nerve pain. Call us today with any questions regarding sciatica Las Vegas.

Sciatica and the Sciatic Nerve

Sciatica treatments start with the sciatic nerve. Going by several names, including the ischiadic and ischiatic nerve, it is a common complaint from patients. For all intensive purposes the sciatic nerves are the longest and widest of all the nerves in the body. This is in part why they are so sensitive. This nerve is categorized into two parts: the articular and muscular branches. The articular branch is connected to the hip joint and controls the muscle movements around that area. The muscular branch is the start for all of the smaller nerves in your legs. This is why pain at the top of the nerve causes pain to extend down the leg. Also attached to sensors in the skin, this nerve has the ability to cause a tingling or pin like sensation in the legs. Damage or stressors anywhere along the nerve can cause subluxation, or a lack of nerve flow. This disorder can manifest itself as pain, numbness, or weakness in patients with damage to this area. Subluxation is a common cause of pain in patients, and the sciatic nerve is not excluded from this. This is one of the reasons why the this disorder is so common and such a bother to our patients. Call us today for treatments and advice regarding your Sciatica.

Sciatica is caused by Stress on the Sciatic Nerve

Sciatica Las Vegas tends to be caused by one of several possible ailments. Subluxation is one of the most common. If left untreated, it tends to build up causing more pain over time. Stress in daily life also can lead to an increase in subluxation. Spinal disk herniation, typically in the lower back, is a common cause of sciatic nerve pain. Vertebrae in the spine are separated by fluid filled disks. Either through years of built up stress, or some traumatic event, damage can be caused forcing one or more of the disks outward. This causes improper alignment of the spine which puts pressure on the sciatic, as well as all of the other nerves in your body. Inflammation around the affected area causes further pressure on the nervous system. Lumbar spinal stenosis is another of the most common causes of pain felt in the sciatic nerve area. This disorder refers to a general constriction of the nerves running up the spinal column. A herniated disk can cause this, as can general inflammation. If left untreated for a long period, the symptoms can get worse as nerve pressure inside of your spine increases. Piriformis syndrome is a medical disorder that affects a significant portion of the public. For unknown reasons, nearly fifteen percent of people are born with a sciatic nerve that permeates the piriformis muscle, instead of traveling below it. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, call today for a free consultation regarding sciatica Las Vegas.

Many common ailments, sciatica Las Vegas in particular, can be caused by stress. There are physical, mental/emotional, and chemical stressors that can act upon the body in a negative way. Ironically, many of the medicines more traditional doctors prescribe for pain, like that originating in the sciatic nerve, end up causing the symptoms themselves after prolonged use. These methods are simply covering up stress causing agents with chemicals that in turn act as stressors on your body. For this reason, patients must be very careful about how they choose their treatment method. Remember, chemical drugs only mask symptoms; they do not treat causes of pain.
