Understanding Sciatica

Sciatica is generally considered a problem of a spinal alignment, in which nerves become pinched because of displacement of the discs that cushion the bones of the spine. The condition may occur when the hollow canal within the spine becomes narrowed, causing pressure on the nerves inside it. In some cases, one of the vertebrae slips out of alignment and narrows the opening through which a nerve travels. Other times, the piriform muscle, deep within the buttocks, goes into spasm, irritating a nerve, which then causes symptoms. The individual may experience pain, numbness or tingling that may travel down the leg and to the foot. Individuals may have difficulty with movement or weakness in the leg. Pain may be worse when sitting.

How Is Sciatica Diagnosed?

Diagnostic tests to determine sciatica include x-rays, MRI and CT scan to view the bones and soft tissues of the lower back. Electromyography is a test that measures the electrical impulses produced by the nerves, as well as muscle response. Combined, these tests can determine if nerves are being compressed within the lower spinal column and are contributing to the pain and other symptoms.

Chiropractic Treatment of Sciatica Problems

Anti-inflammatory medications, both over-the-counter and prescription, are used to reduce inflammation of the nerve. In addition, pain relievers and muscle relaxants may also be used in treatment. However, these methods may not provide full relief from symptoms, and some individuals may experience troublesome side effects. Surgery is sometimes needed to relieve the discomfort from this condition. Chiropractors offer a drug-free and non-invasive option that can help to relieve the ache, numbness, and tingling of sciatica. Manual adjustment of the spinal vertebrae, massage, heat and ice and other treatments can help to relieve discomfort from sciatica. Physical therapy and corrective exercise can also be helpful. Dr. Michael can provide a continuum of treatment to include pain relief care, corrective care, and wellness care, to maintain good health and restore normal function.
