What spinal conditions cause patients to select chiropractic for sciatica?
Many different spinal problems can cause a patient to select chiropractic for sciatica.
Patients with sciatica symptoms often experience pain, weakness, numbness, and/or tingling in their leg. It typically occurs when there is compression and/or entrapment causing damage on the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve starts in the lower back and distributes through the pelvis and down the legs. It controls the muscles of the back of the knee and lower leg and provides sensation to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole of the foot.
Common causes of sciatica include:
Spinal Disc Bulges, Protrusions, and Herniations
Abnormal Spinal Alignment
In our lives we encounter 2 types of physical stress on our spinal structures. Acute physical stress from accidents, falls and/or traumas and chronic physical stress from long periods sitting using the computer or with their head down on the phone, extended periods of standing or long driving/riding and/or performing repetitive motions in poor postural positions.
The accumulation of this acute and chronic physical stress on our spine often leads to the loss of the normal spinal alignment and results in the spine developing a weakened spinal alignment. This weakened abnormal alignment causes abnormal loading of the spinal structures and overtime creates abnormal stress on different structures of the spine causing them to break down leading to pain and dysfunction.
