Sciatica Causes and Treatment
The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, so when it becomes damaged, the result is painful. Before Dr. Anthony J. Oberti of Whole Health Chiropractic can treat your sciatica, he must first determine the injury or ailment that is causing sciatic nerve pain. Sciatic nerve pain is typically felt from the low back (buttocks area) to behind the thigh and radiating down below the knee.
One of the most common causes of sciatic nerve pain is a herniated disc. If you have spinal misalignments or an underlying condition such as spondylolisthesis, he may suggest chiropractic adjustments. While sciatica is often associated with low back pain, it can make walking difficult or almost impossible if left untreated. If you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica, visit us immediately.
