Sciatica. I’m sure you’ve heard of this. It’s a very common condition, it affects more than 3 million people each year. In Las Vegas, sciatica pain treatment is one of the most commonly requested treatments for chronic pain relief.
Sciatic pain is a condition where pain radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve branches from the lower back through your hips and glutes (buttocks) and down each leg.
Most commonly sciatic pain only affects one side of the body. The nerve compression caused by sciatica can present as anything from a mild ache, to a sharp pain, to excruciating dull aching pain from the lumbar spine down your buttocks to the back of your leg.
Many times people exhibit having some numbness, or tingling, along with muscle weakness on the affected side of the body. Most individuals feel extremely unstable in a standing position. The pain can be very debilitating and can affect most activities of everyday life.
Causes of sciatica pain:
Sciatica happens when the sciatic nerve bundle becomes impinged. Typically the sciatic nerve is compressed by some form of dysfunction.

There are a wide variety of ways to treat this sciatica condition. Some of the most common treatments people tend to seek out are:

These are all great places to start. The key is to remember, sciatica is a symptom of something else causing nerve impingement. So, we want to get deeper into the underlying issue, the true cause of sciatica.
Meaning we don’t want a Sciatica pain treatment approach that simply addresses the symptom. We want to find out why it is occurring. To explore this deeper we must address postural distortions and correct skeletal alignment.
