Here at Wellsure Chiropractic, we frequently see patients complaining of Sciatica or “sciatic pain”.
Sciatica is a pain in the buttocks and lower back, that travels down one or both legs. It is caused by compression or interference of the sciatic nerve. Pain may be accompanied by loss of sensation along the back of the thigh, leg and foot. People with sciatica may find it difficult to walk, with weakness in certain leg movements. Sciatica is a term that is commonly misconstrued and used to diagnose any form of pain in the buttocks or lower back.
Compression of the sciatic nerve can be due to many reasons, including but not limited to: spinal degeneration, piriformis syndrome, disc herniations and/or lumbar facet dysfunction.
An in-depth examination of the lumbar spine and lower limb will be conducted, alongside neurological testing to determine the best management for you.
At Wellsure Chiropractic we have many tools and knowledge of Sciatica to best manage your complaint.
