Sciatic Treatment in Jacksonville

Sciatica, or sciatic neuralgia, is a condition which creates pain, starting in the lower back and continuing through the back of the leg to the foot. Extended periods of standing or sitting can be unbearably painful when dealing with sciatica. In addition it can cause weakness, tingling and numbness throughout the leg and foot. Generally sciatica shows up periodically throughout a person’s life with different levels of pain and discomfort. Regardless, sciatica requires immediate attention to avoid permanent nerve damage.

Compression of your sciatic nerve, the body's longest nerve, is the reason why pain travels throughout the legs and back. Originating from the lumbar spine, and then extending into the buttocks and down the legs the sciatic nerve covers a wide range. When pinched by the compression of vertebrae in your lower back, the roots of the nerve are inflamed which causes the pain.


How Do You Develop Sciatica?

Numerous conditions can develop into sciatica. The most frequent factor is disc injuries and bulged discs. These are caused by the disc compressing on the nerve root. Disc injuries are the result of poor posture, continuous bending over, injury or accidents. Pregnancy, trauma or poor posture are effects of subluxations which is common for sciatica. Even simple tasks, like bending over to pick up something, have caused patients to endure intense pain. Unfortunately, it is probable that this spine condition has been progressing previous to the incident.

Recovery time varies on the severity of the sciatica and the amount of correction that needs to be done. A longer persisting condition will most likely require a longer recovery timetable. To end on a positive note, it usually requires less time to adjust and recover than it took to create the condition. A healthier body is often a result of spine and disc improvements.

I’m a big proponent of chiropractic but what I want to tell you today is how special and different Dr. Jon is from other Chiropractors! His exam is extremely comprehensive. Above and beyond other chiropractors I have used. When I walked in I had very specific pains and when I walked out they were gone! I’m a patient for Life!
