Sciatica Treatment

If you suffer from sciatica pain, you aren’t alone. Estimates show that up to 40% of adults have some degree of sciatica. Dr. Helene Levinson and her staff at Levinson Chiropractic in Sandy Springs, Georgia have years of experience treating patients for lower back pain, sciatica, and an array of other chiropractic issues.

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica is pressure on or damage to the sciatic nerve, which begins in the buttock region and goes down the leg. When sciatica nerve pain begins, it typically occurs in the lower back. If there is pinching on the sciatic nerve, it can cause immense pain and discomfort, as well as numbness. Many patients who suffer from sciatica find that one or both of their legs go numb. Other patients simply feel a stinging in the lower back.

What Causes Sciatica?

Why would a person develop lower back pain from sciatica? There are several reasons:

  • A herniated spinal disc that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve
  • Arthritis in the spine
  • Aging 
  • A patient who is overweight
  • A patient who works a very active job, using their back a lot
  • Poor posture, frequent slouching
