Sciatica Relief with ChiropracticExperiencing pain in your lower back or noticing any odd feelings in the lower extremities of your body may suggest a pinched nerve. The sciatic nerve, which is located in your lower back, runs down the upper portion of your legs and impacts your physical feeling in the area. When you develop sciatica due to an accident, poor posture or any other situation, it may require help from a chiropractor to address the problem.
Symptoms of Sciatica
The symptoms of sciatica depend on the severity of the pinched nerve. In most cases, you will notice pain, tingling or numbness in your lower back and upper legs. Generally, the discomfort spreads throughout the area and is more noticeable when standing or changing positions.
Although most cases of the problem result in discomfort and pain, it may also cause weakness throughout the area. You may notice the discomfort coming and going due to a minor problem or you may notice a consistent discomfort when the nerve is injured or pinched. You want to address the discomfort as soon as you notice the problem to avoid complications with your health.
