One of the more common causes of lower back pain is sciatica. This condition can cause considerable pain that makes it hard to sit, stand, sleep and do other activities comfortably. When you have sciatica that affects your daily life, Blue Apple Walk In Chiropractic can help. We offer sciatica treatment in Bismarck, Bozeman and Fargo.
Causes of Sciatica
Sciatica describes pain and inflammation that affect the sciatic nerve. This is a large nerve that runs from the lower back to the foot, and any inflammation that occurs can lead to pain anywhere along its length. Bulging discs, growths, and other problems can put pressure on this nerve, resulting in inflammation. Finding the underlying cause of sciatica helps determine the kind of treatment that works best for you.
Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica is more than simply lower back pain. When experiencing this inflammation, many people have pain that flares up suddenly when moving certain ways. Many also feel this pain all the way down the leg on the affected side. Sciatica pain usually only occurs on one side of the body, but it can affect both sides in some cases. Sciatica pain might feel worse when getting up after being seated or lying down for long periods of time. A tingling sensation along the sciatic nerve might also be felt.
Chiropractic Care in Bismarck, Bozeman, and Fargo for Sciatica
Blue Apple Walk In Chiropractic in Bismarck, Bozeman, and Fargo offers spinal adjustments and other chiropractic care to help relieve sciatica symptoms. These adjustments help realign your spine, which can help take pressure off of your sciatic nerve. When this pressure is gone, you should experience relief from pain and other symptoms. Keep in mind that you might need to have underlying conditions treated, such as having a growth removed, to fully relieve sciatica.
Our chiropractor will perform adjustments that allow damage to your spine to heal, which can help ease inflammation that contributes to sciatica. Along with these adjustments, we can also help you learn exercises that make your lower back muscles stronger and improve your range of motion, which helps reduce your risk of having sciatica come back. Our chiropractor can also go over lifestyle changes with you to ease or manage sciatica pain, such as doing stretches at home and applying heat to the area when it is sore.
