Treating Sciatica Nerve Pain
Sciatica nerve pain is one of the most common chronic pain conditions with over 3 million people affected in the US. Patients suffering from this condition find discomfort even in the simplest tasks, including standing up.
Common Symptoms of Sciatica Nerve Pain
Common symptoms include:
- lower back pain
- pain in the leg that is typically worse when sitting for extended periods of time
- Burning or tingling sensation down the leg
- weakness or numbness that makes it difficult to move the leg
- shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand
While over-the-counter pain medication will help alleviate the pain temporarily, patients will require different treatment from health care professionals including chiropractic care.
Herniated discs and bone spurs can pinch nerves to cause the pain in lower parts of the body. While surgery is needed in extremely rare cases, physical therapy and chiropractic care to adjust your resting posture and build up muscles to protect you from any further injuries.
