Identifying Sciatic Nerve Pain Symptoms in Frisco
It can be difficult to identify sciatic nerve pain symptoms versus a localized back injury since some of the symptoms are the same. Both sciatica and localized back injuries have some of the same symptoms, including back pain, loss of range of motion and weakness in the back. Our chiropractor can perform an examination to help you determine if you have a localized back injury or sciatic nerve pain with a physical examination.
Symptoms and Causes of a Sciatic Nerve Compression Treated by our Frisco Chiropractor
Our Frisco chiropractor can identify the causes of your nerve compression and recommend a treatment program to ease your symptoms. The symptoms of a sciatic nerve compression include lower back pain that radiates down into the legs. This can cause numbness and tingling in the buttocks and down the legs, difficulty walking and pain in the buttocks. The good news is that once the reason for the compression is found, sciatic nerve pain is often reversible, meaning it typically doesn’t cause permanent damage. The sciatic nerve can become compressed if you have spinal stenosis in your lower back, extremely tight buttock muscles, a herniated disc or degenerative disc disease.
Our chiropractor offers sciatica treatment in Frisco that can help heal your injury and reduce the symptoms of your sciatic nerve compression. Your exact treatment program will depend on your diagnosis. If your sciatic nerve compression is caused by spinal stenosis or a misaligned vertebra, our chiropractor may recommend chiropractic adjustments, which correct misalignments in the spine to maximize the range of motion of the joint.
If you have a herniated disc, we may recommend spinal decompression, which helps heal ruptured and herniated discs in the back by stretching the spine. If you have extremely tight buttock muscles, we may recommend active therapeutic movement, which can alleviate muscle spasms.
