Sciatica is symptom, as opposed to a cause and is usually associated with:
- A Disc bulge or protrusion
- A spinal misalignment
- A Pelvic injury
- Tumor in very rare cases
How Do I know If I Have Sciatica?
Sciatica can be isolated to certain points such as the buttocks, knee area, or calf; or it may be apparent along the entire length of the nerve from the lower back to the feet and toes.
If you feel discomfort in any of these areas that you cannot attribute to an injury or sprain and you have been experiencing this pain for a duration of more than four weeks, then it could be Sciatica.
If Sciatica is a symptom, how will a Chiropractor help?
We have helped many Sciatica sufferers by gently correcting interference from the spine with our Activator instrument. Our methods are gentle and specific so you feel no discomfort.
