Pinched Nerve and Sciatica Treatment in Richmond Victoria
Here at Adaptive Chiropractic in Richmond, one of our commonly seen symptoms is a pinched nerve and sciatica treatment. Also known as sciatic pain, sciatica, or a pinched nerve, it is any pain that results from pressure on a nerve, or any other irritation of a nerve. If you suffer from a pinched nerve or any kind of sciatica pain, effective sciatica treatment can go a long way towards helping you get back on your feet again.
What is the sciatic nerve?
Originating in the lower spine, the sciatic nerves are the largest and longest nerves in the human body. It begins in the lower back, where it branches off from the spinal cord. From there, it runs through the buttock and down the legs, ending just below the knee. The sciatic nerve is responsible for sending signals between the spinal cord and the legs. This allows for movement and sensation in the legs.
What are some of the causes of sciatica pain?
Sciatica is generally caused by either increased pressure on the sciatic nerves, or the stretching or compression of nerve tissue. This can be caused by a range of issues, including:
- Poor posture
- Prolonged sitting
- Sports injuries
- Hip fractures
- Tumours of the lumbar spine
- Herniated disc or other disc injuries
- Spinal stenosis (a narrowing of the spinal canal that leads to compression)
- Piriformis syndrome (a very rare condition where the sciatic nerve runs through the piriformis muscle instead of beneath it)
Sciatica symptoms may include acute pain, numbness, or both. A pinched nerve or sciatic pain can be concerning. It can change, sometimes becoming a sharp pain in your leg and other times a burning sensation in the muscle.
Sciatica can be an extremely debilitating problem, often leaving sufferers in constant severe pain. Symptoms of sciatica include sharp, stabbing nerve pain, tingling, numbness and weakness, all of which make it difficult for sufferers to go about their daily lives.
