UNDERLYING CAUSES OF SCIATICA PAIN IN CHINO CA
Every day people experience horrible low back pain that shoots down one side of their body. Although it feels like an injury in many cases, the root cause of the condition is pressure on the sciatic nerve. Picking up a heavy object, bending over without using your knees or just twisting can aggravate an already existing condition. These may include:
Among the common causes of sciatic nerve pressure, when a lumbar disc pushes on the outer gel-like membrane it can put pressure on the sciatic nerve.
When the vertebrae in the low back are out of alignment, walking, bending and even sitting can result in undue pressure on the sciatic nerve.
This condition often starts in young children. The spine becomes misaligned causing fractures in the lumbar vertebrae. These small fractures become a cause of sciatica later in life.
Known as spinal stenosis, this condition compresses the sciatic nerve.
While these rank among the more common sciatica causes, there is a wide range of conditions that can put pressure on the sciatic nerve. The pain and discomfort from this condition can range from mildly annoying to excruciating.
Keep in mind, that the current pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve can always increase. But there’s no reason for you to needlessly suffer. That’s why it’s important to work with an experienced chiropractor.
