Sciatica treatment in Overland Park
Sciatica is a specific type of low back pain that is known best for its radiating symptoms. These symptoms have a very characteristic pattern, but the cause can be different for each person. But fear not, there are options for sciatica treatment in Overland Park, KS and others in surrounding areas.
Chiropractic care gives great relief and correction for sciatic low back pain, making chiropractic the first choice for treatment of sciatica. While other methods such as injections, muscle relaxers and painkillers may help reduce symptoms temporarily, it takes a hands-on approach to make the sciatic pain stay away.
Between each vertebra you have spinal nerves that leave the spine and travel to the rest of your body. In the low back, these nerves travel down your back, buttocks and legs until they reach your toes. These nerves let you move and walk, but they also give sensation. When the nerves are irritated, they can send numbness or tingling sensations and in some cases even create pain. Sciatica is a pain that goes down the buttocks and into the back of the thigh. It does not go below the knee, typically, but if there are multiple nerves pinched the pain can go all the way to your toes.
