Sciatic nerve pain is one of the worst types of pain you can experience! It can be a constant dull ache like a toothache, sharp stabbing pain, or anything in between – from the hip to your toes.
Your sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in your body! Sciatica affects about 5% of adults in the U.S. and is one of the most common causes of chronic disability.
Chances are, you ignored some early warning signs: an occasional stiff back upon arising, low back spasms, muscle fatigue or weakness, and “hot” and “cold” spots. The problem is, as you wait for these symptoms to go away, more pressure builds up along the nerve roots that make up the sciatic nerve causing further inflammation and irritation. And then one day when you pick up a pencil from the floor and it feels as though your lower back is “on fire” or your spine is in a locked position.
Even a cough or a sneeze may cause excruciating pain. You may have trouble walking upright, sitting, or sleeping comfortably. At one point, you can barely hobble into the office to get the help you desperately need! This does not have to happen to you! Discover what works while you still have options open to you.
Research shows that chiropractic can relieve sciatic pain by correcting spinal misalignments and reducing pressure on the sciatic nerve. Eliminating nerve interference allows your body to heal itself, naturally. If you have questions, call Fogarty Chiropractic Life Clinic at (321) 636-5200 to schedule your appointment today!
