Sciatica, or sciatic nerve pain, is a group of several symptoms instead of one type of condition, disease, or syndrome. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve found within the human body, and it helps connect the legs and feet to the rest of the body by the central nervous system, also called the CNS. According to many doctors and scientists alike, several different types of health issues, such as a spinal misalignment or a herniated disc, as well as several other health issues that affect any area of the human body near the sciatic nerve, can cause inflammation that will push and press against the sciatic nerve. Sciatic nerve pain, or sciatica, is commonly identified by pain and discomfort, tingling sensations, numbness, and other common symptoms. Many patients will visit a doctor with low back pain and several other symptoms. They will then find out that they have sciatica, or sciatic nerve pain, because of another health issue like a spinal misalignment or a herniated disc. Chiropractors use spinal adjustments to treat low back pain, sciatica, and other conditions, diseases, or syndromes associated with the musculoskeletal and nervous systems. The careful and gentle manual manipulations that a doctor of chiropractic uses can help realign the person’s spine to relieve their symptoms. Chiropractors can also use several other treatment options together with the spinal adjustments to give patients the relief they deserve, such as ice/cold therapy, ultrasound, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, or a TENS unit. Suppose a person’s sciatic nerve pain, or sciatica, is caused by excess weight or obesity. In that case, the doctor of chiropractic can also recommend diet and lifestyle changes to help promote weight loss and overall health and wellness. The video above briefly discusses sciatica and how chiropractic care is one of the best treatments for sciatic nerve pain and other problems.
[00:00:19] So, today, I want to speak to you guys about sciatica. What is sciatica? Sciatica is the spinal nerve compression that runs to the feet, or sometimes it stops at the cap. The sciatic nerve is the longest in the body, and it is instrumental to the body because it connects the feet to the central nervous system. What are the symptoms of sciatic nerve pain?
[00:00:42] It is lower back pain. It is a hip pain. It is a pain in the buttocks, and it is a pain that radiates to your feet. Pain caused by sitting up makes it difficult for a person even to try to stand from a sitting position. Many patients walk here, walk into the clinic, and are unaware of what is wrong. They’re like, “You know what? My hip is hurting.” They are unable to walk without any help.
[00:01:11] One of the things that people love most about Dr. Jimenez is that he is homeopathic. He does try natural treatments first before attempting even to send you to get surgery.
