The sciatic nerve travels from the spine into the lower back and branches off into each leg. Depending on where the problem lies along this nerve determines where the pain is being felt. Often, only one leg is affected.

Some common reasons that sciatica occurs is due to:

  • Inflammatory diseases
  • Spinal diseases
  • Pregnancy
  • Disc problems
  • Being overweight
  • Cancer

If you visit your family physician for help with caring for sciatica, he or she will most likely recommend:

  • Ibuprofen or other NSAIDs
  • Epidural steroids
  • Surgery to remove the tumor or bulging disc
  • Muscle relaxers

Some of these things will help you get temporary relief while undergoing an episode of sciatica. However, chances are this condition will continue to occur unless the underlying cause is addressed. Another thing to think about is that all medication and surgery come with unwanted and dangerous side effects. Where can effective, natural relief be found?

Sciatica Relieved by Upper Cervical Care

It may seem strange that a lower back problem can be addressed by working on the bones of the upper neck, but it becomes more understandable when you think of the spine as a whole unit that works together. If a misalignment in the bones of the neck has occurred, the spine must shift and twist to compensate for the weight of the head. This can cause a number of issues down the entire spinal column. When it comes to the lower back, the sciatic nerve can easily become irritated as the spine moves out of proper position.

Here at Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic in Chattanooga, TN, we employ a very gentle method to help realign the bones. Rather than forcing them back into place by cracking or popping the spine, we encourage them to move back into place by using a special technique. This allows the body to heal from the damage done by the misalignment and often results in much relief for sciatica patients.
