The Sciatica Nerve
The persistent pain that is felt along the Sciatic nerve is medically described as "Sciatica". This nerve, which is the longest and widest in the body, runs from the lower back, through the buttocks and down the back of each leg. Its function is to provide sensation to the thighs, legs and the soles of the feet and it also controls the muscles of the lower leg. But don't be alarmed if you are suffering pains like these.

What is Sciatica?
Well, in fact sciatica really is a description of symptoms as opposed to a diagnosis of what may be irritating the Sciatic nerve which in turn gives rise to the pain. It is a fairly common form of lower back and leg discomfort but what is often misunderstood is that the condition tends to result from general wear and tear on lower spine structures. Some medical professionals misinterpret this wear and tear as injury-related. If you think that you have a problem with your Sciatic nerve, then a visit to a Sciatica Chiropractor at our modern Bodnar Chiropractic Center in downtown Alexandria, North Virginia will soon reveal the problem so that our Chiropractic for Sciatica treatment program can be implemented to relieve your pain
What Are The Symptoms of Sciatica Then?
The most common symptom is a pain that spreads out along the path of the Sciatic nerve, beginning with the lower back and extending down one leg. But there are many other symptoms too, and these vary widely depending on the exact point at which the Sciatic nerve becomes affected. Some sufferers may experience a dull ache or a mild tingling sensation, while others may feel as if they have been scalded down one side of their body. The aptly named pins-and-needles sensation is a common symptom too, and is usually felt in the foot or toes. Sciatica pain often begins slowly and then gradually intensifies, but sudden involuntary movements such as sneezing or coughing can bring on severe pain too. Sciatica Chiropractic treatment is one of the really effective options for this condition.
How is Sciatica Diagnosed?
Your Chiropractor for Sciatica doctor is a really good start for detection, diagnosis and Sciatica treatment planning. And your Sciatica Chiropractor will begin by taking a complete patient history from you so that he or she can discover vital clues that will likely surface. The area and path of the pain as well as the physical activities you may have been involved with at the time will also be discussed in depth with your Chiropractor for Sciatica. Your Sciatica Chiropractor will undertake a physical and neurological examination too and you may be asked to perform certain basic activities, all in the interests of accurate diagnosis by your Chiropractor for Sciatica. If necessary, your Sciatica Chiropractor may recommend diagnostic imaging (X-Ray, MRI, or CT scan) to assist with accurate diagnosis and help decide on an effective Sciatica treatment program.
So What Are The Treatment Options?
Most Sciatica sufferers will respond well to Sciatica Chiropractic treatment in its various forms. But keep in mind that Sciatica is a symptom and not a medical condition, so Sciatica treatment plans will vary according to the underlying causes of the pain.
