Sciatica | Bayside Chiropractic
Sciatica is a type of pain in the sciatic nerve. It affects one side of the body, especially the hip area. It needs timely treatment from professional like Bayside Chiropractic.
Sciatica is a pain that affects the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that spread from the lower back through the buttocks and hips of each leg. This pain is actually a sign that you have put too much pressure on the nerves in your lower back and that is becoming a problem. Usually, Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve gets pinched either by a herniated disk in the spine or due to bone overgrowth.
The common causes of this condition include injury, infection, spinal stenosis or spine growth. Other causes include pain, inflammation, numbness in the affected leg. This pain usually intensifies over time. It gets worse when you sneeze, cough or just sits. The pain can be mild or severe, excruciating discomfort or burning sensation. For some people, it can be irritating or infrequent, while for some it can be debilitating and severe.
When you see a Bayside chiropractor, it helps to restore the spinal movement and improves the function while reducing inflammation and pain. The treatment plan helps the patient recover by using different treatment methods such as ice/heat therapy, TENS, ultrasound, spinal adjustments and rehabilitative workouts that help in pain relief.
