Get Chiropractic Care for Sciatica

Written By Autera Health Center on July 9, 2021

Sciatica Treatment

The sciatic nerve consists of five sets of nerve roots located in your lower back. When one or more of them gets compressed or irritated, you experience one or more of a collection of painful symptoms called sciatica. Symptoms include pain in your lower back that can radiate through your glutes and down your legs, numbness or tingling in the same broad region, and pain triggered by specific movements or positions.

The key to minimizing and eliminating is by addressing the correct root cause of what’s putting pressure on which sciatic nerve. Studies show chiropractic care excels at treating and alleviating sciatic pain. At Autera Health Center in Peachtree City, we get to the root of your sciatica and help provide pain relief through conservative methods, including non-surgical spinal decompression.

The 6 Most Common Cause of Sciatica

Bulging/Herniated Disc - A bulging disc has bulged out of place, and a herniated disc has torn or has a tear in it. Both bulges and herniations squeeze the sciatic nerve and a herniation further irritates it by leaking hyaluronic acid. It’s the heartburn of your spine.There’s a 90% chance your sciatica is due to a disc herniation; however, we’ll properly evaluate you to arrive at the correct diagnosis. 

Spinal Stenosis - This is a condition where your spinal cord gets squeezed by a narrowing spinal canal. Narrowing can develop from injury, bone spurs, and thickening of ligaments holding the spine together.

Spondylolisthesis - Spondylolisthesis is when one vertebra slips over another. You can be born with it or develop it due to spinal degeneration, injury, or too much stress on your spine.

Injury - The spine is meant to withstand some punishment but it’s not impervious to harm. The most common forms of injury that trigger sciatica are high impact sports, car accidents, and falling. Shards of broken bone around the spine sometimes compress nerves, too. 

Piriformis syndrome - Your sciatic nerve gets squeezed in the hip region due to muscle spasms.

Spinal Tumor - Like a bulging disc, the rare tumor, cancerous or not, can compress nerves.
