Major causes of sciatica
Sciatica pain is commonly the result of disc herniation that directly presses on the nerve. If there is inflammation of the sciatic nerve, this can lead to symptoms of sciatica. Some natural causes of sciatica can include irritation of the nerve from the bone or internal bleeding which can cause infections around the spine. If you are experiencing symptoms of sciatica, and are looking for a chiropractor, contact one of our chiropractors of Ronkonkoma for a consultation.
Symptoms of sciatica
Feeling weak in your knees. The sciatic nerve is one of the biggest nerves in the body: It runs from your lower spine all the way down to your foot. When the nerve is pinched, it no longer functions properly. This results in pain, weakness, and tingling.
Frequent bathroom use. One symptom of sciatica is losing control of your bowel and bladder movements. In rare cases, if the column of the spine puts a lot of pressure on the nerve, it can lead to permanent damage to both the bladder and bowel function. In that case, it is urgent to see a doctor immediately. Our chiropractors in Ronkonkoma at Connetquot Chiropractic specialize in treating sciatic nerve pain. If you are experiencing this symptom or any symptom regarding sciatica contact one of our chiropractors in Ronkonkoma for a consultation.
