The sciatic nerve starts at the lower back and runs down the back of each leg into the feet. It’s the longest nerve in the body! Sciatica, or sciatic neuralgia, is a condition that refers to the pain caused by problems in the sciatic nerve. It can come and go throughout a person’s lifetime, but when it is acting up, it can cause a great deal of discomfort to the patient. Left unchecked, the nerve could become permanently damaged. So if your sciatica has become a problem, it’s important to get it checked out from the team at Hope Health & Wellness.
Symptoms of Mid-Back Pain
- Fire-like pain going down the leg
- Pins and needles in glutes and back portion of leg
- Shooting pain from the low back into the glute region
- Difficulty going from seated to standing
Common Causes of Sciatica
When the vertebrae in the lower back are compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve can become pinched and irritated, which causes the pain, discomfort, and injury. Our work, family needs, and lifestyles can create a perfect environment for sciatica.
Disc injuries or bulges often lead to sciatic pains because the abnormal disc presses against the nerve root. These disc issues can sometimes be out of our control, such as during pregnancy or when you’ve experienced a trauma.
How We Help
Manual and gentle adjustments are commonly used to realign the vertebrae in your spine or joints that are out of place. This can happen for many reasons such as trauma, car accidents, slip and falls, or just regular daily activities.
We are proud to be the only clinic in Florida to have the Anti-Gravity Decompression Chair. While in an anti-gravity position, we can reduce the pressure on your disc and nerves and increase your mobility.
Physical therapists are movement experts. They help people improve or restore mobility and reduce their pain. Through hands-on care and patient education, our Physical Therapist will improve the quality of your life.
