What Causes Sciatic Nerve Pain?

Your spine is made up of a column of bones called vertebrae. Between each vertebra is a shock-absorbing disc that prevents the bones from rubbing together. Sciatica pain is caused by the misalignment of a vertebra in the lower back so that the disc or vertebra is irritating, inflaming, pinching, or compressing the sciatic nerve, which originates in the lower back. The sciatic nerve is the longest and thickest nerve in the body. It is made up of five nerve roots, including two from the lower back region (lumbar spine) and three from the final section of the spine (sacrum). Most people feel low back pain and/or pain that runs down the leg.

The most common causes and contributing factors of sciatica pain include:

  • Herniated or slipped disc
  • Bulging disc
  • A short leg
  • Conditions such as degenerative disc disease, osteoarthritis, etc.

At Myshka Chiropractic we go through your history, do a thorough exam, and X-rays if needed. Diagnosis is made after reviewing the findings of these three parts.

Chiropractic adjustments can help relieve the pressure that is put on the sciatic nerve root and treat pain by putting your body in a position to heal itself. We may also use a cold laser treatment to help speed up recovery. Learn more about our sciatica pain relief and treatment.
