What Causes Sciatica and What’s the Best Sciatica Care Plan?

Written By Platinum Chiropractic on November 27, 2019

sciatica treatmentFor Minnesotans, winter runs from September to May. 

If your day job wasn’t physically demanding enough, you also come home from work to deal with two feet of snow in October.

The truth is, daily work throws off the natural foundation of your spine leaving you at risk for injuries from simple tasks. 

Sciatica isn’t a condition in itself – it’s more of a symptom. Here’s what causes it and what sciatica care looks like.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica is a secondary condition, as opposed to a primary condition. 

Think of your body like a house. Your spine and central nervous system are the foundation. What happens when the foundation of your house is damaged? Lots of problems. Fixing the hardwood floor is futile if you don’t correct the foundation damage, right?

Your body is the same way. When your spine is damaged or misaligned from injury or poor posture, this leaves room for injuries like bulging or herniated discs. 

A bulging disc in your lower back can wreak all sorts of havoc like chronic pain, muscle spasms, and pinched nerves. 

Sciatica is the result of a pinched nerve from a herniated disc in your lower back. See why it’s so important to restore the spine instead of simply treating the sciatica pain?
