If you’ve ever had the unfortunate experience of feeling the pain that sciatica brings, you know all too well that it is different than generalized back pain. Sciatica is so centralized that it can make it difficult to walk, to drive, or to engage in your favourite forms of physical activity. Sciatica is caused by a nerve that has been squished in the lower spine. Because it is the end of the nerve that is compressed, you are left with excruciating pain. However, the good news is that sciatica pain can often be relieved through chiropractic treatments.
Some of the symptoms of sciatica include:
- Feelings of pain or numbness in your legs
- Pain that increases with movement
- Tingling in your feet
These effects can be mild, moderate or severe. Regardless of how intense the pain is, if you want to pursue an active lifestyle, you need to rid yourself of the symptoms as soon as possible.
