Sciatica occurs when your sciatic nerve becomes inflamed. At Churn Creek Chiropractic in Redding CA, we work to identify the root cause of your sciatic pain in order to provide treatment.

The Symptoms Of Sciatica

When you have sciatica, you will feel a tingling or burning sensation that starts in your low back. The tingling or burning can become significant pain when your sciatica is left untreated. You can feel the pain in your buttocks, down the back of your leg, and down into your foot if your sciatic nerve is inflamed for a period of time. The pain doesn’t tend to respond to medication and can be debilitating.

The Causes Of Sciatic Nerve Pain

Sciatic nerve pain is the result of pressure on your sciatic nerve. The pressure can be caused by a disc that is bulging, vertebrae that are misaligned, or from a structural abnormality such as arthritis. When the nerve has pressure on it, the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed.

Treatment For Sciatica With A Chiropractor

Treatment for sciatica with a chiropractor generally involves trying to get the spine into proper alignment. Through gentle stretching, spinal manipulation and traction therapy to decompress the area, sciatic pain can be relieved. It takes time for the sciatic nerve to calm down, and you may need to seek treatment several times a week before you begin to see consistent periods of relief.
