Find Relief from Radiating Leg Pain

woman with back painAre you experiencing pain that radiates down the back of your leg? You may be suffering from sciatica. At Barham Chiropractic, we understand how debilitating this condition can be, and we’re here to help you find relief.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition caused by irritation of the sciatic nerve, a large nerve bundle that originates in the lower back and runs down the back of each leg. This irritation can be caused by a misalignment in the spine or a tight piriformis muscle putting pressure on the nerve. Common symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Sharp, shooting pain that radiates from the lower back down the leg
  • Numbness or tingling sensations in the leg or foot
  • Weakness in the affected leg
  • Pain that worsens with prolonged sitting or standing

Sciatica can significantly impact your quality of life, making it difficult to perform daily tasks and enjoy your favourite activities.

Our Approach to Sciatica Treatment

Our experienced chiropractors in Albany Creek will perform a thorough assessment to determine the root cause of your sciatica. We’ll distinguish between sciatic pain referred from pelvic or muscle issues versus disc problems, as each requires a different treatment approach.

In many cases, sciatica is caused by functional issues rather than a “slipped disc,” despite this common misconception. By improving spinal movement and alignment through targeted chiropractic adjustments, we can often resolve the nerve irritation and alleviate your pain.

Our chiropractors may also recommend specific stretches and exercises to help manage your symptoms and prevent future flare-ups. These may include:

  • Gentle stretches to improve flexibility in the lower back and legs
  • Core strengthening exercises to support proper spinal alignment
  • Low-impact aerobic exercises to promote circulation and reduce inflammation
In addition to in-office treatments, we may suggest lifestyle modifications, such as improving your posture, using ergonomic furniture, or making changes to your sleep setup to help reduce the stress on your sciatic nerve.
