Between 10 and 40 percent of American adults have some degree of sciatica. However, many of those people choose to suffer with their pain instead of seeking professional chiropractic help. This type of nerve pain can range from mild to severe, and can be debilitating in some patients. 

Dr. Thayer is experienced at treating all degrees of sciatica at the source. So Cal Chiropractic in Costa Mesa has an expert team that is ready to help you get back to your life and put your pain behind you.

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a nerve condition that originates in the lower back and affects one or both legs. The condition is caused by pressure being put on the sciatic nerve—this pinching causes discomfort and pain, in addition to numbness.

But why does sciatica occur? There are several factors that can contribute, including a herniated or slipped disk. In other cases, arthritis in the spine may contribute to developing sciatica. Those who work physically demanding jobs or are overweight may find themselves at a higher risk for developing the condition.

Sciatica Symptoms 

  • Pain that originates in the spine and radiates down the back of the leg
  • Nerve pain in the lower back and leg
  • Pins and needles in your feet, back or legs
  • Pain that worsens with movement

The good news is that sciatica is fairly simple to diagnose. If you suspect that you may be suffering from sciatica, we encourage you to contact our chiropractic office in Costa Mesa at (949) 548-7767.
