What Is Sciatica?

The term “sciatica” describes the pain that travels down the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs from the buttocks down each leg. The most common cause of sciatica is when pressure is placed on the lumbar spine nerve roots, usually from a herniated disk or bone overgrowth. This pressure leads to inflammation, pain, and sometimes numbness in the affected leg.

Symptoms Of Sciatica 

Pain from sciatica may manifest anywhere along the pathway of the nerve. It is particularly common for the pain to travel from the lower back to the buttocks, and then down to the back of the thigh and calf. The intensity of the pain can range from a slight discomfort to a severe, burning sensation. At times, it may resemble a sudden jolt or an electric shock. 

  • Shooting pains 
  • Pain in the leg 
  • A burning pain 
  • Numbness in the leg 
  • Pain during movement 
  • Buttock pain 
  • Numbness, tingling, or weakness in the muscles of the leg or foot

How Can A Chiropractor Help With Sciatica?

When it comes to finding relief from sciatic pain, visiting a chiropractor can be a beneficial option. Sciatica is often characterised by low back and leg pain that can cause severe discomfort. The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body, and when it becomes compressed or irritated, it can result in pain and discomfort. A common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc in the spine, causing your leg pain without low back pain. Here at Head2Toe Carrigaline our chiropractic treatment will to help relieve sciatica pain and address the underlying issues causing your pain.

What To Expect During Sciatica Pain Treatment From A Chiropractor

When seeking chiropractic treatment for sciatica pain, patients can expect relief from the severe pain caused by a flare-up of sciatic nerve pain. during your session our chiropractor will ask about the history of the pain, including when it started and what activities may have led to the pain. Chiropractic treatment can help by addressing the compression of the large sciatic nerve in the back that often leads to pain. The treatment involves adjustments and manipulations to alleviate the pain without drugs or surgery, providing long-term relief and allowing the body to heal naturally. Sciatica often affects the neck and back, and our chiropractor will work to provide relief and allowing the body to heal without drugs or surgery.

Dr. Nayna Boohla was incredible adjusting my twisted back and hips after a fall I took in the rain on holiday. She is very caring and incredibly knowledgable at chiropractic and Accupuncture. And only because of her I could continue my trip for another 3 weeks.

Yvonne is a miracle worker! I was in pain for months with lower back pain and nothing was working--went to Yvonne at Head to Toe and over time she has made my pain manageable and most days non-existent! She listened to me and we worked out a plan that included me getting back to the gym and getting off pain killers, and so far its working out brilliantly! I can actually move again and enjoy my life which frankly, didn't seem possible 6 months ago...I cannot recommend Yvonne highly enough-Thank you!

I had my first session yesterday! After years of injuring my back while working I’ve had masseuses refuse to touch it out of fear of damaging my back even more. I’ve had numbness in my arm, terrible sleeping patterns and my lower back locks up very often. Out of fear, I was nervous to try acupuncture but Nayna was so calm and made the process very relaxing. She took all the time she needed, clicking and relieving my back, neck, arms, pelvis and legs. I slept like a baby last night for the first time in ages! My back was so inflamed and I can now feel the instant relief after going only once. It is costly but so so worth it (in my opinion the expense of going to many cheaper places adds up and doesn’t have the same effect). I’m able to go about my day pain free and I’m not even taking any pain killers or anti inflammatories, I feel amazing! Thank you Nayna X

I went to Barry Murphy Mid April for physical therapy treatment due to ongoing pain in my left hip and lower back brought on from running. In short Barry was fantastic. Not only did he help alleviate symptoms he also gave me the tools and skills to ensure that I wont end up in the same place again. Thanks to Barry, I now have a much better understanding of my body and how it works and how to take care of it. Finally he's a lovely guy and completely put me at my ease.
