Sciatica Treatment in Portland OR

Sciatica Treatment in Portland OR

When the sciatic nerve becomes pressured or gets injured, it causes pain in the back, leg, buttocks, or the hip area. That is sciatica. Sciatic nerve pain is more common than most people realize. Approximately 40 percent of the population will endure symptoms associated with sciatica during their lifetime. Here at Chiropractic Physicians and Rehabilitation in Portland, we treat the symptoms associated with sciatica and work with people to help them understand how the condition affects them.


Common Symptoms Caused By Sciatica

Our chiropractor understands that sciatica is a complex condition and it affects people differently. Some of our patients experience numbness, tingling sensations, and dull nagging pain. We have other patients who experience pain they describe as stabbing, throbbing with heat, and even pain that resembles electric shock. Sciatic nerve pain can present as an aggravating ache or it can intensify to the point that people find it is difficult to stand or walk.


Risk Factors for Sciatica

  • Age
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • People who sits for long periods of time
  • People who has a job that requires twisting and heavy lifting

Prevention

It is best to prevent sciatica and its future occurrence by doing the following preventions:

  • Exercise on a daily basis, this is to help keep your posture and spine in alignment.
  • If you work in an area where you are required to sit for long time, keep your hips and knees on the same level and choose a seat that will support your back.
  • Perform good body mechanics during work so that you can avoid any awkward twisting and lifting.
