Sciatica Leg Pain

Sciatica symptoms can be tricky – appearing and reappearing, morphing from numbness to pain to weakness and back again, showing up in your lower back, your behind or even your legs. It may be difficult to rise from a seated position, or you may have trouble moving your foot. If you are suffering from sciatica leg pain, you understand the frustration of dealing with ongoing pain and the quest to find relief. But your quest may be at an end – keep reading to find out how a natural approach to sciatica pain can help.

Sciatica Quick Facts

There are some very prevalent misconceptions regarding sciatica, so let’s set the record straight:

  • Sciatica is not a diagnosis for what is causing your leg pain
  • Symptoms of sciatica, whether in the back, buttocks or legs, generally originate in the lower back
  • Sciatica means that your sciatic nerve is being disturbed
  • Sciatica does not mean you are doomed to taking pills or having surgery

Sciatica is just a collection of symptoms that occur when your sciatic nerve is compressed by some other spinal element. Finding out which spinal structures are the culprits and eliminating or reducing the nerve disturbances they are causing is the only way to “cure” sciatica. Treating sciatica symptoms with medications, steroid injections, sciatica exercises and surgery doesn’t correct the spinal misalignments that are impinging on the nerves, so the symptoms continue to reappear.

But Why Does My Leg Hurt?

The sciatic nerve is actually the longest and widest nerve in the human body, extending from the spine down the legs to the toes. Many sciatica leg pain sufferers believe that they have something wrong with their legs, when the truth is that the problem is actually in the back. Sciatica symptoms may appear in the lower back, rear end or the legs, depending upon where the sciatic nerve is being compressed, but sciatica leg pain is not an indication of anything wrong with the leg.

Regardless of where your symptoms appear, unless you address the root of the problem, they will continue flare up and cause you discomfort. So finding the underlying cause is the most important thing. Addressing the problem safely, naturally and without drugs is the next most important thing. Let us show you how.

Natural is Better

“Chiropractic care has had excellent success with sciatica because it targets the underlying spinal misalignments to reduce the nerve disturbances resulting in sciatica symptoms, ” says an Archbold chiropractor in Fulton County. “With the nerves returned to normal functioning, your body can heal itself and symptoms diminish or disappear altogether.”

This listing of Roswell chiropractors would like to meet you.

Getting started is as easy as contacting one of the chiropractors in your area. Your initial consultation will consist of a question-and-answer session as the doctor investigates the origins of your sciatica pain. Next, your chiropractor will conduct an examination to further pinpoint trouble spots, and to ensure that chiropractic is a good approach for you. Assuming it is, a strategy for correcting misalignments in the spine will be explained to you, and the first adjustment(s) will be delivered precisely to the target area(s).

Since chiropractic is the world’s most-utilized mode of alternative health care, chances are you’ve heard of it and probably know someone who has tried it. But maybe you’ve hesitated to try it for yourself because you’ve heard it isn’t “real” medicine. Nothing could be further from the truth! Although they are not M.D.s, chiropractors are doctors with advanced education, specialized training and stringent licensing and oversight regulations, just like M.D.s. However, unlike many traditional medical doctors, chiropractors don’t rely on drugs or invasive procedures. They work with the body’s natural healing abilities by restoring optimal nerve function and correcting structural misalignments that disturb nerve processes. Chiropractic is safe and 100% natural. And there’s a good chance your insurance covers it.

We’re not predicting any specific outcome for your sciatica leg pain – no one can do that – but we can say that chiropractic enjoys very high levels of patient satisfaction, for the simple reason that it works!

Don’t Take That Pill!

Medications, whether prescription or over-the-counter, work by overriding the body’s normal, natural healing mechanisms. When you upset the body’s balance in this way, you may achieve temporary relief of sciatica symptoms, but the process of healing is interrupted or stopped. In addition, all drugs have potential risks and side effects. Some common drugs prescribed for sciatica include:

Drug Unwanted Effects
Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs) Side effects range from headaches to heart attacks.
Anti-convulsants Side effects range from trouble concentrating to vision loss.
Muscle relaxants Side effects range from drowsiness to hallucinations.
Anti-depressants Side effects range from vomiting to seizures.
Narcotics Side effects range from loss of appetite to memory loss.
