If you have ever experienced pain that runs from your lower back to your leg, it may be due to sciatica. The condition can cause pain and numbness both legs, as both legs have a bundle of sciatic nerves. At Roselle Center For Healing in Fairfax, VA, we provide treatment that can offer relief from sciatica and help you heal.


Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors. The nerve may be pinched due to a herniated disk or bone spur. Other medical conditions, such as diabetes and tumors may also compress the nerve. Some causes of sciatica include:

  • Excessive weight: Excess weight puts additional stress on your spine and press on the sciatic nerve.
  • Occupation: If your job includes sitting at a desk for prolonged hours, twisting your back, or moving heavy items, these factors can lead to sciatica.
  • Age: Age can be the cause of many ailments and conditions, including sciatica. As we age, herniated disks and bone spurs become more likely to occur and cause this condition.
  • Personal injury: A car accident, slip and fall, sports injury, and personal injury can result in a herniated disk that causes sciatica pain.
  • Sitting for long periods of time: When you sit for long periods of time, it can affect your spine and may lead to sciatica.

When to Seek Treatment

It is important to seek treatment as soon as you notice any back pain. While over-the-counter medications can provide temporary relief, the pain tends to come back. When you visit us, our chiropractors will perform an evaluation to learn more about your condition and determine the root cause of your discomfort. Afterward, we can help relieve your pain with several gentle techniques, including spinal adjustments, massage therapy, hot and cold therapies, and ultrasound therapy.
