A common ailment that causes pain is Sciatica. Sciatica is basically a pain or numbness and tingling of the leg. This condition is normally a symptom of a medical condition. In some cases, no treatment is required and recovery can occur on its own. It is still a good idea to look into ways to relieve your pain and/or figure out what is causing it to begin with.
Sciatica is usually caused by pressure placed on the sciatic nerve in the spine. This pressure is often caused by a slipped disc, sports injuries, car accidents, or other type of spinal related issue. There are many different specific causes and many options for treating sciatica. For many, dealing with the underlying condition is the best form of treatment but other options may need to be investigated as well.
Chiropractic care is often an option worth considering when dealing with this type of pain, but even things like stretching, exercise, and nutrition changes that lead to weight loss may have an impact as well. If you’re coping with sciatica then your best bet is to review all of your treatment options and settle on the one that is right for you.
