Our Surfside and Myrtle Beach Chiropractor Explain Symptoms of Sciatica

Man suffering from sciatica in Myrtle Beach and in need of chiropractic care

Here at Surfside Chiropractic Center, we provide care to those experiencing symptoms of sciatica in Myrtle Beach and Surfside Beach.

What exactly is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a painful problem many people suffer with unnecessarily.

Sciatica syndrome is ultimately caused by impingement of the sciatic nerves. These nerves exit the spinal cord near your lower back and then go on to branch into your legs. Pressure on the nerve and/or nerve roots (as caused by any of the medical conditions described above) leads to inflammation, which can cause a wide range of unpleasant symptoms.

Symptoms of Sciatica

Symptoms of sciatica vary greatly in terms of severity, type, and duration. Common symptoms include:

  • Low back pain
  • Hip pain and/or buttocks pain
  • Leg pain which typically presents in one leg, but may present in both; this pain is often described as shooting or stabbing
  • Leg weakness, numbness, or tingling, again in one or both legs
  • Impaired mobility and/or decreased tolerance to physical activity

Sciatica pain--whether in the back, hips, buttocks, or legs--is often worse in sitting.

Chiropractic Care in Surfside and Myrtle Beach Can Help Alleviate Sciatica Symptoms

Nerve damage caused by sciatica is not always permanent, and signs and symptoms of sciatica may vary. However, when left untreated, a person with sciatica is put at risk for chronic dysfunction.

At Surfside Chiropractic, our approach to sciatica care involves careful and thorough analysis of an individual's whole body system and lifestyle. This is the best way to correctly identify any underlying factors contributing to a person's sciatica. In addition to alleviating symptoms, we help our

patients resolve any underlying factors, promote whole-person healing, and prevent chronic and/or recurring dysfunction.

The chiropractic techniques we use to achieve this include spinal adjustments, electric muscle stimulation, mutual release, massage therapy, corrective exercises, stretching, and lifestyle counseling.
