The summer season is in full swing! As we enjoy the warm weather, barbecues, and the excitement of long-awaited vacations, are you feeling red with anger, white with pain, and emotionally blue with being park-benched with low back and leg pain? If so, read on.

Understanding Sciatic Nerve Pain

The sciatic nerve, the longest and widest nerve in your body, starts from your lower back, travels through your buttock, and extends down to your lower leg. This nerve is essential, as it controls the muscles in these areas and provides sensation to your thighs, legs, and the soles of your feet.

When the sciatic nerve becomes irritated, it leads to a painful condition known as sciatica. Often affecting individuals between thirty and fifty years old, sciatica is usually caused by general wear and tear rather than a direct injury.

First Steps to Address Sciatica

To confirm a diagnosis of sciatica, consider scheduling an appointment at Van Dam Chiropractic. Our team, including skilled chiropractor Dr. Scott Van Dam, will start with a thorough patient history to understand your symptoms, their onset, and the activities that exacerbate your pain. A physical and neurological examination focused on your spine and legs will also be conducted, assessing your muscle strength, sensory capabilities, and reflexes.

If a more severe underlying issue is suspected, diagnostic imaging like X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans may be recommended.

Stars And Stripes Healthcare Options

For many dealing with sciatica, chiropractic care provides an effective, non-surgical solution. Treatments are personalized based on the unique findings from your examinations and may include spinal adjustments, ice/heat therapy, ultrasound, TENS machine therapy, rehabilitative exercises, or spinal decompression.
