Tags: Sciatica   Leg Pain  

You've probably heard about sciatica and may know that it's associated with back pain, but many people don't understand what causes it Sciatica Explanationor how it can be prevented. Our team of chiropractors with Milton Chiropractic & Rehabilitation see many patients at their Quincy, Massachusetts office who are dealing with sciatica. Below is information about what causes sciatica and how it can be prevented.

What is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve pathway is the largest spinal nerve in the body, running from the lower back down most of one leg. Compression or irritation of this nerve is known as sciatica, which causes a shooting pain in the lower back, buttock, leg, even traveling as far as the foot. Many of your Quincy chiropractor's patients also report a feeling of weakness in the leg. The pain is often consistent regardless of position; sitting, standing, and even lying down may produce some measure of discomfort. Sciatica is common in middle-aged adults and is typically considered a symptom of a health issue such as a herniated spinal disc, a displaced vertebra, or even pregnancy (due to the baby's head pushing against the sciatic nerve).

How Do I Prevent Sciatica?

If you've dealt with a case of sciatica, you're likely hoping to avoid another. Even if you're lucky enough to have avoided sciatica, preventing back problems should always be a priority. One of the best ways to prevent sciatic nerve pain is to use proper techniques when lifting. Regardless of how much the object weighs, always take care to lift with your back straight and your knees bent, holding it as close to your core as possible. Exercise will also help to strengthen your muscles and maintain good posture, while regular spinal adjustments from your Quincy chiropractor will help to keep your body aligned.
