Do you ever experience pain that shoots from your lower back down into your legs and feet? If so, you may be suffering from Sciatica.
Sciatica is a condition where the sciatic nerve, the one that runs from your buttocks right down to your toes, is compressed. It’s usually caused by a herniated disc or bone spur, and may result in intense pain, tingling, weakness or numbness in the lower back and legs.
Some triggers for Sciatica to be aware of include age related changes to the spine, weight gain and obesity, and awkward movements such as twisting, carrying heavy loads, or sitting or driving for long periods of time.
When triggered, Sciatica pain can come on quickly and be debilitating. The positive news is that your professional Wellbeing Chiropractors are educated and experienced in number of non-surgical therapies to try to relieve your pain and discomfort
