Caring for leg pain
Sciatica is pain starting in the lower back and extending down the leg and sometimes both legs. Commonly, it’s worse after periods of standing or sitting. Sciatica can result in serious leg pain that, if untreated, can have adverse effects.
Often in between the spinal bones, the discs in the lower back are involved.
These discs bulge, often as a result of trauma, crowding the nerves nearby and causing inflammation and irritation.This irritation of the nerves extends the legs along the sciatic nerves causing intense leg pain. While the legs are the ones in pain, it’s actually the lower back that is the culprit.
For many people, chiropractic adjustments have improved joint motion in the lower back and helped to reduce and even eliminate the shooting leg pain.
