Sciatica Treatment from Our Chiropractor in Tallahassee
Sciatica patients who visit our Magnolia Wellness Center in Tallahassee, FL are often surprised to learn that sciatica is not just pain. There are a variety of other symptoms sufferers experience beyond pain. Using only natural therapies that avoid medication or surgery, our chiropractor brings relief to our patients and helps them regain their lifestyles they once loved.
The various types of discomfort associated with sciatica all occur when the sciatic nerve undergoes compression. The sciatic nerve is the largest human nerve. Originating in the lower portion of the spine, it runs through the buttocks, down the legs, and into each foot.
Our chiropractor cites a number of conditions and injuries that cause sciatica. The most common include:
- Herniated discs
- Bone spurs
- Excess weight
- Extended time seated
- Accident or injury
- Spinal stenosis
- Vertebral misalignment
The most common complaint from our sciatica patients is pain or other discomfort that occurs anywhere along the path of the sciatic nerve. Back and/or leg pain is particularly prevalent. Some individuals experience a searing pain that extends from a buttock down the back of the associated leg. Others describe a heavy, numb, or weak feeling in a leg or a tingling sensation.
