If you're feeling a tingly feeling down your leg, give us a call NOW!
Sciatica is a painful and often disabling nerve condition that develops when pressure is put on the sciatic nerve. Located in the lower back or lumbar region, the part of the spine where this nerve is located takes a lot of punishment from movement and activity. Trauma, injuries, poor posture, or too much sitting can put additional pressure on the sciatic nerve, with functional and structural imbalances often leading to pain and numbness. At Natural Health Houston, we can diagnose sciatica and initiate chiropractic care programs to help relieve pain and promote structural integrity.
SYMPTOMS OF SCIATICA
Sciatica is associated with a number of physical symptoms, both in the direct area and surrounding parts of the body. Dull aches and pains are commonly felt in the region that extends from the buttock to the back of the thighs, with pain also radiating down the legs into the calf, ankle, and foot. Pain is often accompanied by feelings of numbness and tingling, which can lead to loss of power and mobility in the legs and feet. The sciatic nerve is formed from nerve roots that originate in the spine, which gives this pain an uncomfortable and all-encompassing quality that is almost impossible to ignore.
TREATMENT FOR SCIATICA
Treatment for sciatica consists of rest, postural improvements, ergonomic furniture, gentle exercises, and professional chiropractic care. Here at Natural Health Houston, we provide a range of treatment options for people with sciatica, including spinal adjustments, massage therapy, and the development of tailored therapeutic exercise programs.
