An Overview of Sciatica
A common problem for people with hearniated or bulging discs, sciatica is identified by pain that stems from compressed sciatic nerves. The pain usually starts in the lower back and travels down to one or both legs. The pain may vary in terms of frequency, severity, or it may be constant. The sciatic nerve travels through the lower back, hips and buttocks. When a herniated disc compresses the sciatic nerve, it causes the nerve to swell and pain arises in the lower body. Zannetti Chiropractic has seen the pain inflicted by sciatica on many patients. The Chiropractic care he administers is a preventative and control tool for sciatica pain.
When the sciatic nerve is compressed due to herniated or bulging disc, it leads to painful symptoms such as:
- Pain concentrated on only one side of your lower body
- Sharp shooting pain along the sciatic nerve
- Numbness in your legs
- Dull aches
- Pain when standing
- Difficulty breathing
- Panic attack symptoms
