Back pain can be an unfavorable aspect of life for a number of people living in Mechanicsville. Sciatica is a term that describes symptoms of pain that are felt in the lower back and buttocks, often radiating down the back of the leg and to the foot. If you are experiencing back pain and leg pain in the city of Mechanicsville is it possible your pain is from sciatica.  Though it may be that you only have the shooting leg pain down the back of your leg.  If you have the leg pain in the absence of the low back pain, it is usually a more complicated case.

Generally sciatica is caused by the compression or irritation of the nerve roots that make up what is known as the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs from your spinal chord to your buttocks and hip area, then down the back of each leg, thus sciatica can also be felt as weakness, tingling, and numbness in the leg. It is more frequently found in people over the age of 30 due the wear and tear on the lower spine that the body experiences as it ages.

The conditions that cause sciatica can be varied. Treatment and symptoms also vary from patient to patient. Because of the individualized nature of the causes of sciatica, a series of different exams and tests are typically performed to locate the cause of your pain and an individual plan for your relief developed.

In many cases in Mechanicsville the back pain you are experiencing from sciatica will improve or even go away on its own if you give it at least 3 to 9 months, however, treatment can help offer relief for your back pain in less time. Treatment at your medical doctor may deal with the use of anitinflamitories, pain medication, and a referral to a physical therapist for stretching and exercise. If you are looking for a drug free, natural approach to pain relief, consider chiropractic care.  Depending on the cause of your back pain, professional advice and care could ease your discomfort and pain.

Your qualified chiropractor located in the city of Mechanicsville can provide you with more information regarding sciatica, back pain, and back pain relief.
