Sciatica Treatment in Charlotte NC

Sciatica Treatment Charlotte NCOur Charlotte chiropractors see patients for many different types of pain, including nerve pain. One of the most common types of nerve pain is sciatica, a symptom of a problem relating to the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is characterized by a pain that generally radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs, typically from the lower back. The severity of pain differs from patient to patient, ranging from mild to debilitating. In some patients, the pain will come and go, while other patients may experience constant pain that interferes with their ability to function.

 Sciatica Treatment in Charlotte NC: Symptoms

Sciatica can cause a number of symptoms, including the following: Pain that radiates from the lower back and into the thigh, and sometimes further down the leg into the foot and toes. Tingling sensation or burning feeling. Weakness or numbness of the leg muscles. Symptoms that occur in only one leg, as sciatica rarely occurs in both.

Causes of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower back down both legs and into the toes, feeds each of the legs messages from the brain, and back again. These messages are what allow you walk, move your legs, and feel with your legs, making it an important component in the body. However, certain things can cause sciatica damage or discomfort, such as a trapped nerve in the lumbar spine, a herniated disc, piriformis syndrome, or trigger point referral.

Treatment for Sciatica

Sciatica treatment generally involves consecutive sessions with a professional chiropractor to relieve the pressure put on the sciatica nerve. Treatment is generally very effective and can be combined with a number of therapies safely to improve the condition. Chiropractic adjustments work by taking pressure off of the nerves. These adjustments can also be helpful in the recovery of a herniated, or ‘slipped’ disc. Spinal adjustments are not painful and can help free any restrictions in the spine and restore alignment to reduce nerve irritation, such as sciatica pain.
