Sciatica Treatment in Miami
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term used to refer to pain, which occurs as a result of irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the human body. It extends through the buttock and down each leg, making its presence known by causing tingling, numbness, and discomfort in the hip area, down to the toes.
For most people with sciatica, it is an intermittent condition that can be controlled through medication or non-surgical treatment options, such as pinched sciatic nerve treatment.
If you are suffering from the effects of sciatica, you may consider seeking chiropractic treatment. Our sciatica treatment techniques at Silverman Chiropractic can help ease lower back pain, tingling sensations in the legs, and numbness.
What Causes Sciatic Nerve Pain?
Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back, gluteus maximus, thighs, and lower legs. It is often caused by compression of one or more of the lumbar spinal nerves. The lumbar nerves emerge between the vertebrae L4 and L5 to run down the legs as the sciatic nerve. Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is by far the most common cause of sciatica.
Other issues that may irritate the sciatic nerve include:
- Fibromyalgia (musculoskeletal pain with stiffness)
- Spinal stenosis
- Infection in the lumbar spine
- spondylolisthesis (spinal misalignment)
With our sciatic treatment at Silverman Chiropractic, you will get the long-awaited relief that might have seemed impossible before.
How to Relieve Sciatica Pain
Sciatica pain is often described as a dull ache, a burning sensation, or a sharp jabbing pain that may radiate down the buttocks, down the back of the thighs, and even into the feet. You can’t walk, sit comfortably, sleep – you can’t even think about anything else.
If you suspect that you have sciatica, the first step is to visit a specialist chiropractor who can properly evaluate your condition and prescribe a sciatic nerve treatment depending on the severity of the problem.
