Causes for Sciatica & Chiropractic Care

Living a sedentary lifestyle, improper form or injury while participating in sports or physical activities, obesity, and age can alter the natural function of the body and lead to sciatica.

Individuals who spend an extended period of time sitting, especially with an incorrect slouching posture, can increase the risk of developing spine conditions. Also, performing a sport or physical activity incorrectly can cause injury that may often result in sciatica. And last, physical changes in an individual’s body, such as obesity and/or aging, can also cause sciatica. 

Fortunately, there are several treatment options for individuals with sciatica symptoms. Chiropractic care for sciatica focuses on spinal adjustments and manual manipulations to gradually restore the natural condition of the spine. Alternatively, a chiropractor may also recommend strengthening exercises as a follow up treatment for sciatica. It’s important to always consult a medical professional before attempting any form of physical activity to prevent further injury for your condition. 

Dr. Alex Jimenez D.C.,C.C.S.T’s insight:

Sciatica is defined as a set of symptoms, such as pain, numbness and tingling sensations, or weakness on the lower back, buttocks, or back of the leg, usually caused when a herniated disk or bone spur in the spine compresses the nerve. Various other types of conditions or direct trauma from an injury can cause symptoms of sciatica but, most of them are characterized by increased pressure on the spine.
