Sciatica (Nerve Pain) Treatment

sciaticaIf you suffer from sciatica, you're not alone. Many people from Bankstown to Bexley will suffer the pain of sciatica, without ever seeking a natural, long term solution. Often, the problem worsens if appropriate treatment is not received.

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. It originates from the lumbar spinal cord and extends down the leg. This long nerve controls sensations you feel in your thighs and legs as well as muscle movement in the lower legs.

The team at The Back Clinic may be able to diagnose sciatica with a physical and neurological examination. Sometimes, diagnostic imaging or nerve tests can be used to help with diagnosis.

 

What Does Sciatica Feel Like?

Many people commonly experience pain in the lower back, hip and down the leg. The pain can range from slight discomfort to unbearable pain, in some cases immobilising sufferers. You may also experience tingling or numbness down the leg. Some patients comment that all they did was bend the wrong way or pick something up and they felt pain. What may have happened is that their condition developed over time and a simple movement is enough to set of a 'health crisis'. This is especially true of spinal misalignments that build up over time and of poor posture habits that progressively worsen.

 

Common Causes of Sciatica

Many factors can contribute to sciatic pain, including:

  • lumbar (low back) disc herniation, pressing on the nerve
  • abnormal hip/spine alignment
  • ‘pinched’ nerve irritation or inflammation from disc pressure
  • muscle tightening, pulling your structure out of alignment
  • injury and trauma
  • pregnancy and associated pressure on the sciatic nerve
