sitting around won't heal your sciatica pain

(but we can)

Let’s face it, sciatica pain can put a stop to your life at any moment.  When you feel that shooting or burning pain from your hip to your leg, it’s impossible to focus on anything else.  Work, family, and social commitments all become unmanageable and unbearable.  Even if your sciatic pain comes and goes, it’s important to be proactive. Delaying treatment can cause long-term damage to your sciatic nerve.

At Integrated Spine & Disc in Mandeville, LA, we can help end the cycle of sciatica pain. Sciatica isn’t a diagnosis, it’s a symptom of an underlying problem.  In the same way, a sneeze isn’t a diagnosis but rather a symptom of a cold.  You can take anti-inflammatories for sciatica and find temporary relief, but the pain will return if you don’t address the underlying cause.  

what causes sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is a large nerve extending from the lower spine down the back of each leg. It is the largest nerve in the body, and it travels from the lumbar spinal cord and extends through the buttock to send nerve endings down to the lower limb.

When the sciatic nerve becomes compressed due to a disc problem or a misalignment of the spine, you may feel:

  • Pain in the low back to behind the thigh and radiating down below the knee
  • A burning sensation or tingling down the leg
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
  • Pain radiating around the hip or buttock
  • Constant pain on one side of the rear of the leg that is worse when sitting
  • Shooting pain that makes it difficult to stand up or walk

to stretch or not to stretch?

There are two main contributors to sciatic pain: muscle tightness and nerve compression. The sciatic nerve travels through the piriformis muscle of the hip. When this muscle is excessively tight, the nerve can become trapped, resulting in pain.  

However, the sciatic nerve passes through many structures from the spine to the leg.  This big nerve can become compressed anywhere from the lower back to the hip. If the source of sciatic is in the spine, stretching won’t help. In fact, stretching can make your symptoms worse.

from our patients

“As an active person reluctant to surrender to discomfort or pain, I highly recommend Integrated Spine & Disc. I am relieved that I am able to teach my spine how to adjust to my lifestyle, instead of compromising my lifestyle and abandoning the activities that make me happy.

- inga f.

“As someone who was extremely skeptical of Chiropractic treatment; I can truly say Integrated Spine & Disc changed my mind. Not only did the adjustments help tremendously but the ELDOA’s (similar to physical therapy) helped more than I could have imagined. I am thoroughly impressed with the staff’s knowledge and personal touch. They have certainly educated me on many things and love to answer questions. Their customer service is phenomenal and I honestly look forward to each visit.”

- shelby S.

“Dr Jeff and his crew of fantastic partners are all wonderful good hearted people that just want to help people. If you need straightening out, there’s no better chiropractor than Dr Jeff. The combination of these two practices, ELDOA and chiropractic adjustments, are priceless. Go see them, ask to see their system, and finally ask to see my profile for proof, you have my express permission !”
