Chiropractic for Sciatica

Chiropractic for Sciatica

Your Trusted Chiropractor, Serving Elgin Since 2001.

The sciatic nerve starts at the low back, then branches off and runs through the buttocks and down the back of each leg. It’s the largest nerve in the body and enables stability and movement.

Because it supports us while we’re moving and while static (standing), the sciatic nerve is under a lot of pressure throughout the average day, which makes it susceptible to injury. While the nerve is important to our movement patterns, it also provides sensory (feeling) to the lower half of the body. 

The nerve is essential to your overall balance, so getting chiropractic care at the first signs of discomfort can keep the pain from worsening. 

If you think you have sciatica, contact our team today, and let’s get it under control quickly and safely. 

What is sciatica?

When you feel pain that runs along the sciatic nerve, it may be sciatica. In most cases, this pain is caused due to a disturbance in the nerve’s structure. When other soft tissues are pushed out of place and apply undue pressure on the sciatic nerve, it often shows up as discomfort in the affected area.

Common physical symptoms associated with sciatica include:

  • Mild aches to intense pain
  • Pain that starts in the low back and moves into the buttock
  • Burning sensation 
  • Numbing sensation
  • Tingling sensation 
  • Sharp pain
  • Shooting or radiating pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of energy

These symptoms can hinder your lifestyle, making work, exercise, and social engagements challenging. Chiropractic solutions are non-invasive and proven to end sciatic pain by treating its root cause.

We don’t want to just end your pain; we want to heal your body. When you work with our Elgin chiropractic clinic, you get experience and knowledge that leads you down a successful, pain-free path.

Who gets sciatica?

Sciatica can affect many kinds of people adhering to various lifestyles. From desk workers to baseball players to accident victims, you may find that you’re affected by sciatic nerve damage at some point in your life. 

Reasons you may get sciatica include:

  • Overuse or repetitive use of soft tissue groups
  • Improper movement patterns
  • Weight gain or pregnancy
