Sciatica Relief in Green Bay

sitting on couch with leg painDo you feel a sharp pain that travels from your lower back to your foot? Do you have numbness or weakness in one leg? Do you struggle with everyday activities like sitting, bending, or lifting?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you might have sciatica. Sciatica is a condition that affects the sciatic nerve, the largest and longest nerve in your body. The sciatic nerve controls the muscles and sensations in your thighs, lower legs, and feet.

When the sciatic nerve is irritated or compressed by a problem in your lower back, it can cause pain and discomfort that can interfere with your quality of life. But don’t worry, you are not alone. At Radiant Life Chiropractic in Green Bay, we can help you find the best solution for your sciatica and get you back to feeling great.

What is Sciatica and How is it Different from Back Pain?

Back pain is a very common problem that affects most people at some point in their lives. However, not all back pain is sciatica.

Sciatica is a specific type of back pain that involves the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is formed by several nerve roots that branch out from your lower spine. It runs through your buttocks and down the posterior of each leg to your foot.
Sciatica occurs when one or more of these nerve roots are compressed or inflamed by a problem in your lower back. This can cause pain, numbness, or weakness that radiates from your lower back to your buttock and leg on one side of your body. The pain can be dull, aching, shooting, or burning. It can also vary in intensity and frequency.

Sciatica usually affects only one leg at a time, not both. The leg symptoms are often more severe than the back pain. The pain can get worse when you move, cough, sneeze, or sit for a long time.

Sciatica is not a disease by itself, but a symptom of an underlying condition that affects your lower spine. Some of the common causes of sciatica include:

  • Piriformis syndrome: This is a condition where the piriformis muscle in your buttock spasms or tightens. It can irritate or squeeze the sciatic nerve that runs under or through it and cause sciatica.
  • Pregnancy: This is a special case where the growing baby and uterus can put pressure on the lower spine and pelvis. It can also change the posture and alignment of the spine and pelvis. It can affect the sciatic nerve and cause sciatica.
