Sciatic and Lumbar Pain

Sciatic and Lumbar Pain

Sciatic and lumbar pain can occur as a result of many different conditions pertaining to the lower back. Typically, sciatic pain occurs on one side of the lower body, and often times the pain is present from the lower back, through the thigh, and down the leg. The sciatic nerve reaches from the lower back all the way to the toes, and depending on where the nerve is being pinched, a person’s pain can be felt from the toes to the lower back. Still, pain affects everybody differently, so sciatic and lumbago pain can be excruciating, or it can be light and sporadic, yet the pain and conditions always have the potential of getting worse over time if not treated properly. Acute pain from sciatic and lumbago pain may happen initially, but chronic conditions will eventually arise from lack of attention or improper treatment.

Sciatic and lumbar pain originate in the lower back and move down the sciatic nerve through the buttock and each leg. A lumbar herniated disc, on the other hand, happens when a disc in the lower back herniates and pinches the contiguous nerve root. These two conditions can cause people to experience lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and even loss of bladder or bowel control among other symptoms. The cause of sciatic and lumbar pain can occur during many different situations, such as: strenuous activity, hard physical contact with other people, a hard fall, long periods of bending over, and even a rollercoaster can cause issues with the lower back. Regardless of how the pain occurs, at Chronic Conditions Chiropractic in San Luis Obispo, we have the treatment you need to help you find relief for pain.

How Does Chronic Conditions Chiropractic Assess Sciatic and Lumbar Pain?

Identifying whether a patient has an issue with the sciatic nerves or a lumbar injury may require an X-Ray, an MRI, and a physical examination by a chiropractor. Assessing the pain is actually one of most difficult things to do for doctors because it’s about communication, and establishing a dialogue about pain between the patient and doctor can be challenging based on the amount of information to obtain in a short amount of time. For instance, a typical assessment will begin with consulting your health history. Doctors will want to know if the pain is intermittent or constant, the kind of pain (e.g., stabbing, burning), pain triggers, when pain is more likely to occur during the day, and how much pain you are in on a scale of 0-10. After establishing a dialogue of your situation and understanding the extent of your pain, doctors will inquire about previous treatments and any medications you are taking. Some doctors may ask you to keep a journal of the pain that details when you have pain and the types of pain that occur. This will help them better understand the patterns of your condition. A good assessment will help doctors understand what type of treatment will best suit you to relieve the amount of stress you have.
