Sciatica is defined as low back, hip, and buttock pain with associated radiating pain down the back or side of the leg in one or both legs.  The leg pain can sometimes be accompanied by numbness and/or tingling in the distribution of the sciatic nerve.  Additional pain can exist in the low back or in the upper buttock region.  Neurological signs of sciatica include muscle weakness in the leg, decreased reflexes, sensory loss, and loss of coordination and balance.  Sciatica can cause permanent nerve damage and muscle atrophy if left untreated.  There are many causes but the two most common causes are peripheral nerve compression by a muscle or bone, or nerve compression that occurs at the spine.  Common causes of compression at the spine are disc degeneration, or arthritis, disc herniation, and misalignment of the bones of the spine caused by muscle spasm, trauma, or repetitive wear and tear from everyday life.  This causes a “pinch” in the nerve as it exits the spinal column.  Another common cause of sciatica that is often overlooked is spasm and tightening of the piriformis muscle in the upper buttock region.  This condition is called piriformis syndrome.  The sciatic nerve passes directly under, and in some cases, through the piriformis muscle naturally.  Spasms of this muscle can cause nerve compression and leg pain with little to no low back pain.  In any case, a trained professional should assess the injury first to determine a correct diagnosis and recommend a proper treatment plan.

     At Dolan Family Chiropractic we use a simple and effective treatment plan to relieve pain, promote healing, increase range of motion, and restore normal strength and stability to the low back and leg.  Through the use of gentle chiropractic adjusting techniques specifically designed for the treatment of sciatica, pressure is taken off the sciatic nerve by stretching the associated muscles and realigning the bones of the spine to allow proper movement and healing without causing more irritation or injury to the nerve.  We incorporate physiotherapy techniques such as ultrasound and electric muscle stimulation to relieve pain and relax muscle spasms, as well as an easy stretching program to be done at home to further relax the low back and leg.  Once the pain is gone, specific exercises and stretching techniques are recommended for home use to further strengthen the area to protect against future injuries and aggravations.     

     Drs Collin and Alorna Dolan are a husband and wife team of local chiropractors in the Aurora/Naperville area that own Dolan Family Chiropractic.  Their office is conveniently located on the corner of Eola Rd and N. Aurora Rd in the Jewel Shopping Center.  Together they treat a wide variety of injuries in their office that occur in men and woman of all ages.  If you have any questions or would like to speak to either of the doctors personally you can call (630) 236-3090 or check out the office website at the below link.
