The sciatic nerve begins in the area of the lower back. The nerve runs down through the hips and buttocks as far down as the calves and the feet. There are times when this nerve can become irritated, usually due to the following types of issues:
- a misalignment of the spine
- some tension on the spinal cord or the nerves surrounding it
- localized inflammation
- bone spurs
- slipped discs
- fibrous scar tissue.
Sciatic nerve irritation can cause a whole range of symptoms, like pain that you feel in your buttocks, hips, or down your thighs. You might also experience tightness in the legs or the calves or a tingling sensation in your legs, feet, or toes. There could also be some degree of weakness in those areas, and you might even feel a cold sensation in your legs or feet.
For the most part, symptoms will generally appear on one side of your body or the other, but both sides can be affected simultaneously. Sciatic nerve problems can cause your muscles to weaken or even to waste away over time. The muscles in your legs could shrink if they are not receiving the necessary nutrients from your bloodstream.
Treatment for sciatica in Onalaska, WI
As occurs with most kinds of back problems, sciatica will generally respond very favorably to chiropractic care. Chiropractic treatment will, however, not be effective unless the underlying cause of your sciatica is determined. Your doctor can usually determine this by reviewing your medical history and by using modern diagnostic equipment, which can help pinpoint the source of the problem.
For instance, x-rays and MRIs can often be used to determine what is causing your sciatic nerve pain. Once this has been determined, some specific spinal adjustments will generally be called for to help relieve pressure on nerves affecting the sciatic nerve. It might also be necessary to use spinal traction that will help to stretch out the spine and relieve pressure on any nerves which might be irritated.
Help for other areas
When you receive chiropractic treatment for sciatica, you will probably notice relief in several areas where you may have experienced pain or discomfort before. For instance, your low back pain may subside after being treated for sciatica, and you may long no longer feel the pain that radiates into your buttocks.
It might also completely prevent pain from radiating into your hips or your legs. Similarly, numbness or tingling in the legs or feet will likely dissipate after a few treatments. The weakness you may have felt in your legs will likely also disappear once you begin chiropractic care for your sciatica.
