What is sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition in which pain occurs when the sciatic nerve is irritated, inflamed, or injured. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It emerges from your lower spine and runs down the back of your legs to the soles of your feet.

What causes sciatica?

The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated or slipped disk in the lower spine. Some other factors that can cause or contribute to sciatica include:
Degenerative disc disease
Lumbar spinal stenosis
Muscle spasms
Prolonged sitting
Sedentary lifestyle
If you’re an athlete, especially a runner, and you have symptoms of sciatica, it might be caused by piriformis syndrome, a tightening of the piriformis muscle in the lower region of the hip and buttocks area.

Lower back pain
Hip pain

Muscle weakness
Sciatica typically manifests on one side of the body, although it can affect both sides. The pain may vary, presenting as either constant or intermittent. For some individuals, the pain may follow the course of the nerve, creating a sensation that travels along its path.

How does rehabilitation work?

The skilled professionals at Beeson Wellness Center use a multidisciplinary approach to treat sciatica. The first step is a comprehensive evaluation, including diagnostic imaging performed in the office, such as digital X-rays, surface electromyography, or ultrasound, to determine the root cause of your sciatica.
After your evaluation is complete, your provider will create a custom plan to relieve your pain, reduce inflammation, and restore function. This approach goes beyond treating symptoms. It supports the natural healing processes of your body and promotes better health overall. Your treatment plan may include:
Chiropractic adjustments
Trigger point injections
Massage therapy
Physical rehabilitation
Rehabilitation exercises
