The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. When the sciatic nerve is pinched or compressed, it can cause constant or recurring leg, foot, and lower back pain symptoms. At Dunwoody Chiropractic Center, our chiropractor, Dr. Patel, administers safe and non-invasive treatments to help you eliminate sciatica pain. We serve Dunwoody, GA, Atlanta, GA, Sandy Springs, GA, Brookhaven, GA, and Roswell, GA.
What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a term used to describe a set of symptoms related to impingement or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. When the nerve is pinched, you may experience leg or foot pain, as well as tingling, numb spots, or weakness in the leg or foot.
The problem may stem from age-related physical changes. Habitual poor posture, weakened back muscles, pregnancy, weight gain, and injury can all trigger sciatica pain. A spinal misalignment can also put pressure on them and potentially make your symptoms worse.
Some people might find that they're able to get their sciatica under control for a time, only for it be reactivated by turning the wrong way, trying a new exercise, or sleeping in an unusual position.
Non-Surgical Sciatica Solutions
Our chiropractor in Dunwoody can help treat your sciatica pain by identifying and treating the underlying cause. Once we have found the exact point of the problem, we can use non-surgical sciatica treatment options to help you get relief. A chiropractic adjustment to the lower spine might help remove pressure from the sensitive nerve tissue. We may recommend corrective exercises to help strengthen the affected area and we may also recommend lifestyle changes so that you can better avoid triggering your sciatica in the future.
