Sciatica is generally a result of the compression of the lumbar or sacral nerve by compression of the sciatic nerve. When sciatica is caused by compression of a dorsal nerve root, it’s called lumbar radiculopathy. This may occur due to a spinal disc bulge or spinal disc herniation (a herniated intervertebral disc), or by roughening, enlarging, or misalignment (spondylolisthesis) of this fascia, or even as a result of degenerated discs that can reduce the diameter of the lateral foramen by which nerve roots exit the spine.
Sciatica is characterized by a shooting pain that originates in the lower back and travels down through the hip, buttock, and back of the leg. The pain can be so severe that it inhibits mobility and can prevent people from working, taking care of their home, or just enjoying their life. Doctors have treated the condition with medications and some invasive therapies, but chiropractic treatments have been found to be extremely effective in alleviating the pain and curing the condition.
