Our Chiropractors in Denton Can Provide Pain Relief from Sciatica
Sciatica is commonly a pain that radiates from the low back or buttocks down the back of one or both legs. It is usually caused by irritation to the sciatic nerve which is the largest nerve in the body. It is made up of 5 nerve roots that exit the spinal cord. Sciatica can either start as an acute pain in the lower back and then extend to the legs or can begin as leg pain that travels. Sciatic nerve irritation can also present as numbness or tingling in the hamstring, calf or foot. When suffering from sciatica it can be caused by many different origins. Often there is a misalignment in the vertebrae or pelvis causing inflammation, and muscle spasms or possibly swollen or herniated discs which will irritate the nerve causing pain. Due to the pain and symptoms caused by sciatica daily activities like walking, sitting, lifting children, sports, and recreation commonly lose their happiness and fun.
