There are many reasons why people can experience body aches. One of the reasons may be a condition called sciatica or sciatic nerve pain. This one, specifically, requires active and immediate treatment. At Somerset Family Chiropractic, we help patients who suffer from it. Here is a guide that will explain what it is and lead you towards the perfect solution.


What Is Sciatica?


The sciatic nerve is the longest one in our body. It starts from the spinal column in the low back and continues down the legs. People use “sciatica” to refer to the pain in the lower back, down to the foot, and toes. However, it may not specifically be sciatic nerve pain; sometimes, it may be pain from other nerves in that same area.


Essentially, three things can result in sciatic nerve pain: compression, irritation or inflammation, and in rare cases, injury to the sciatic nerve. The sciatica symptoms can be lower back pain, leg pain, buttocks pain or tingling and numbness in your legs and feet.


The Importance of Treatment


Sciatica pain can vary from mild to severe. The pain may have a lower intensity at its early stage, but it can worsen and, without treatment, even require surgery. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to come to this extent, as we offer diverse sciatica treatment options to prevent surgery.


At Somerset Family Chiropractic, we offer a variety of treatment options including physiotherapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic.
