Struggling With Sciatica in Little Neck?

our chiropractic clinic helps sciatica pain

If you are experiencing pain that radiates from the back or buttocks all the way down the legs, you may have a common condition called sciatica. Many people look for a Little Neck chiropractor so they don't have to suffer from the pain of sciatica. An untreated sciatic condition can continue to worsen and make your daily tasks of living go from difficult to impossible. This article is aimed at helping you to understand sciatica and explains how chiropractic treatment can help you to overcome it.


Sciatica, which is also known as sciatic neuralgia, is a condition that causes pain in the lower back, down the back of the leg, and into the foot. It can make sitting and standing for long periods of time difficult and can lead to weakness, tingling, and numbness in the leg and foot. It will often come and go throughout a person's lifetime, causing periods of varying degrees of pain and discomfort. If left unchecked, sciatic pain will generally grow worse and the nerve can become permanently injured.

The reason why the pain travels so far and seems to radiate up and down the legs and back, is because it is caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve, which is the longest nerve in the body. This nerve originates in the lumbar spine and extends into the buttocks before traveling down the leg to the ankle and foot. When the vertebrae in the low back are compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve can become pinched and irritated which is what causes the pain and injury.


There are a number of factors that can lead to sciatica. It is most commonly caused by disc injuries and bulges. In this occurrence, the disc presses against the nerve root causing the issue. Disc Injuries can occur because of poor posture, repetitive use injuries, and accidents.

At Care Chiropractic, we specialize in COX Technic, which has been proven to be an effective treatment for disc herniations. Sciatica is also common when there is intersegmental dysfunction of the spine which might be due to postural issues, pregnancy, or trauma.

Some patients say they simply bent over to pick up a piece of when they suddenly started to experience extreme pain. The reality is that the condition was probably developing for quite some time before the triggering incident occurred.

After a thorough assessment of your unique issue, we have a variety of proper techniques in the office that can help you recover from your sciatica.
