  • Sciatica, a debilitating condition that often sends pain from the low back down the back of the leg, is more common than you might think. Up to 40% of people will experience a bout with sciatica in their lifetime. The truth is that people may experience the pain of sciatica in many different ways. Sciatica symptoms can include: Pain Numbness Tingling Weakness Additionally, these sensations can be felt in various areas, such as: Lower back Hip Buttock Back of the thigh Calf Toes Despite where you feel the pain, in order to find relief, you must find the root cause. Otherwise, you can chase around symptoms all day with different treatments and medications, but chances are lasting relief will not be accomplished. Sciatic and Your Spine Your sciatic nerve is formed from several nerves that branch off the spinal cord in the lower back. Oftentimes, a problem with the vertebrae or the discs in the lower back can cause pressure along the course of the sciatic nerve, causing a flare up. Figuring out why there is a lower back problem can provide a lasting solution to the pain. Contrary to what seems obvious, lower back problems don't always originate there. In many cases, they are a compensation for issues occurring elsewhere in the spine. For instance, a shift of the atlas vertebra, the uppermost one in the neck, can cause a domino effect of compensations. When the atlas shifts, it causes your shoulders and hips to compensate, which creates abnormal muscle tension and spasm throughout the mid and lower back. Unless the atlas is corrected, those compensations will be difficult to relieve on a lasting basis. 1st Place Chiropractic takes an upper cervical approach to chiropractic care. This means we look at your atlas alignment and how it is impacting the ability of the rest of the spine to work properly. We recognize that if your atlas (the 1st link in the chain) is not positioned properly, then the rest of the chain won't be either. Our approach is gentle and specific, with the goal of making as few adjustments as necessary in order to get your body on a healing path back to normal.
