Get Relief From Sciatic Nerve Pain
Those that suffer from sciatic nerve pain know how debilitating the pain can be. Sciatica usually starts in the lower back and continues down to the hip, leg and even to the foot and toes. It typically will affect one side of the body and can cause numbness and weakness, making it difficult to stand and walk. Often the pain is so intense it seems impossible to be comfortable no matter what position you're in. For those that live in and around the Mississauga area, our team at Health & Healing Family Chiropractic care about your sciatic pain and can provide you with the relief you need.
How do I Know if I Have Sciatica?
You will know if your sciatic nerve is the source of your problem if you experience some or all of the following symptoms:
- Severe pain in the back of the legs and/or lower back
- Pain in the hips
- Tingling, weakness or numbness in the legs
- Pain in the buttocks or leg that is worse while seated
- Trouble being active
- Discomfort while sleeping
- Shooting pain down the legs when standing up or sitting down
Sciatic nerve pain starts in the lower back and can originate from different nerves and areas of the lumbar spine. The symptoms may vary depending on which lumbar segment and nerve is being affected. This is why some people have infrequent and irritating sciatic pain and others are debilitated.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Treatments
For some, sciatic pain occurs occasionally and is very mild. Others may suffer serious pain. In either case, both need to seek the help of a chiropractor to perform a chiropractic exam and adjustment to regain their quality of life and address the cause of the problem.
Chiropractic adjustments can relieve much of the pressure that’s caused by a compressed nerve. In addition, your chiropractor can suggest other lifestyle changes that may help reduce sciatic pains such as:
- A nutritional plan to help lose weight
- Develop an exercise plan
- Provide ergonomic tips to reduce spinal stress
- Help choose the right mattress for your body type and sleep habits.
