Understanding Sciatica Pain

Sciatica pain is the cause of suffering for many of the patients we see at Infinite Wellness Integrative Medical Center. Sciatica nerve pain is the result of when the sciatic nerve, which starts in your lower back and branches down to the hips and buttocks, is irritated in some way. Typically occurring on one side of your body, sciatica pain can result from when the nerve is compressed due to a herniated disc, bone spur, or the narrowing of the spine. This pain can manifest in different ways. It can run all the way from the spine to the leg, meaning the pain can affect your everyday life in ways such as:

  • Limiting mobility
  • Decreasing your capacity to sleep
  • Making walking painful
  • Decreasing your capacity to exercise
  • Decreasing your capacity to work

If you suffer from sciatic pain and want to get back to living an active lifestyle, Infinite Wellness Integrative Medical Center offers minimally invasive solutions so you can fight the cause of sciatica pain before the symptoms get any worse. We keep a large focus on recovery, so you can easily partake in any physical activities you may need such as work, exercise, or just everyday recreation. If you are showing symptoms of sciatica pain, it’s important you look towards a solution. 

Symptoms of Sciatica Pain

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is irritated by a bone spur, herniated disc, or any other displaced spinal component. It can be caused by preexisting conditions or by injury. The symptoms of sciatica might get worse over time. The irritation of joints that cause sciatica pain may lead to a handful of symptoms including:
  • Shooting pain that travels down the back, buttocks, or legs
  • Dull or sharp pain at the site of the nerve
  • Pain in the lower body that grows worse while sitting
  • Tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness in the lower body
These symptoms can cause disruption to the everyday activities you partake in. But although the pain caused by sciatica can be severe, there are non-operative solutions that can solve the problem in just a few weeks of treatment. If the sciatica pain is severe enough to result in significant leg weakness or bowl and bladder issues, there might be need for surgery. So it just depends on knowing how severe your sciatica is so you can get it treated properly, and Infinite Wellness Integrative Medical Center is here to help you through the process.

Taking supplements can also help when dealing with the effects of psoriatic arthritis, which is a type of arthritis that can lead to pain in the joints and, subsequently, sciatica pain. Taking the right combination of vitamins and supplements can help you in all sorts of ways when it comes to preventing and dealing with pain so you can go back to living a more active lifestyle.


Since sciatica pain can be caused by an improperly aligned spine, visiting a chiropractor can be really helpful when it comes to reducing the effects of sciatica pain. Getting spinal realignment treatment can go a long way in relieving pain since it targets the root cause of what’s irritating the sciatic nerve. Sciatica stretches performed with the help of a chiropractor can help relax the joints that are causing the pain and irritation. The best part is, through the help of a chiropractor, you can start feeling the relief of the results instantly. Regular visits to a chiropractor can lead to a notable improvement over your life if you suffer from any bone related ailments, and it can certainly help when you’re having to deal with sciatic nerve pain.
