Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica is a painful condition that many Jacksonville residents have to live with because they haven’t found any to reduce the severity of the symptoms. At Amazing Spine Care, our chiropractor is familiar with sciatica and can offer patients a treatment plan to help manage this condition.
Most Sciatica Symptoms Are Localized
Many cases of sciatica start with a sudden onslaught of symptoms. The primary one that usually occurs is severe pain on one side of the body that extends from the lower back area down to the heel of the foot. This is usually a sharp, stabbing pain that comes and goes. You will likely also feel a deep aching pain in the impacted area.
On top of that pain, you might notice a few other symptoms. These can come and go and may worsen as the sciatic nerve becomes more irritated and inflamed. These include:
- Trouble moving the affected leg or foot
- Weakness on the impacted side of the body
- Numbness, tingling, or a pins and needles feeling in the area
- Difficulty walking around
- Lower back pain
Sciatica Pain Treatment
Chiropractic treatments for sciatica address the underlying structural issues that are causing the sciatic nerve to become compressed and irritated. A person who has sciatica may need to have a multifaceted approach to the condition. The chiropractor can review these with you when you make your appointment.
If you are overweight, getting your weight under control might be beneficial. Anyone who has symptoms of sciatica will benefit from adding in a stretching routine to their daily activities. The chiropractic treatments enable the body’s alignment to improve, which can make a huge difference in the condition.
