Sciatica Treatment in Charlotte, NC

Are you experiencing tingling, numbness and/or weakness that originates in the lower back, goes through the buttock and down to the leg? You are probably experiencing a set of symptoms called Sciatica. This is not a medical condition but rather a symptom of a medical condition.

The most common set of symptoms of sciatic nerve pain that people with sciatica complain about are:

  1. Pain in only one side of the buttock or leg
  2. Pain is worse when sitting
  3. Burning or tingling sensation down the leg
  4. Weakness or numbness of one leg or foot
  5. Difficulty of standing up or walking due to sharp pain

Sciatica may be caused by compression or irritation of one of the spinal nerve roots or by the compression or irritation of one or both of the sciatic nerves. Severity of the pain varies, but can be extreme.

Symptoms do not always show up because of injuries. Rather, nerve pain commonly develops over time. This is why people under 20 years of age are less likely to experience sciatica, but the probability increases when a person reaches 50 years old.

Most of the time, people who suffer from sciatica feel better after a few weeks or months with the help of non-surgical treatments such as over the counter medications and other self-care measures. However, proper chiropractic intervention can lessen the length and intensity of flare ups. Through spinal decompression and manual spinal manipulation Chiropractic care brings relief to those suffering from Sciatica.
