Nerve Entrapment & Sciatic Relief
When nerves are compressed or become entrapped, the pain or weakness that accompanies it may become unbearable. More specifically, when the pain appears to radiate from your lower back spreading down each leg, this is classified as sciatica. Understanding that poor posture is a bad habit many of us share, not to mention as much as 40% of us Americans will at one point in our lives experience some sort of sciatic pain, we comprehend the importance of taking swift approaches when it comes to assessing any susceptibilities symptoms.
Our team of chiropractic experts can relieve your nerve pain through holistic approaches and techniques within a matter of weeks through spinal manipulation, referred physical therapy, and prescribed medication if the severity of your sciatic symptoms exacerbate to severe levels.
What Is Sciatica?
The sciatic nerve originates in the lumbosacral spine (lower back), travels through the hamstring area, and finally culminates down each foot. Actual injury to this nerve is rare, and what most patients are likely experiencing is the entrapment, compression, pinching, inflammation or otherwise irritation of the sciatic nerve instead.
What Causes It?
Sciatica can also be caused by a range of other medical diseases and conditions such as:
- Slipped or herniated disc
- Lumbar degenerative disc disease
- Piriformis syndrome
- Spinal stenosis
At Lewis Physical & Pain Medicine, we offer physical medicine services in chiropractic care, massage therapy for flexibility, and physical therapy exercising among many other treatments. When these standard treatments don’t relieve your acute pain, epidural steroid injections as well as other medications may be prescribed. Only when the pain is unbearable and burdening to the point where it prohibits simple daily tasks is surgery considered as an option.
Luckily, surgical procedures on the sciatic nerve are rarely needed because the pain generally comes from irritation and not the sciatic nerve itself.
Signs and symptoms of sciatic nerve entrapment include:
- Lower spine, leg, or foot weakness or numbness
- Mobility loss or pain worsening with movement
- Tingling sensation that aches
- Loss of bowel movements or bladder control
- Persistent pins-and-needles feeling on your toes or feet
