When a problem occurs in the body, due to ergonomic stress, spinal misalignment, or degenerative changes, the body uses pain as a signal for us to pay attention and act.
And believe it or not, pain is usually the last thing to show up and the first thing to leave, whether we’re talking about injuries or spinal conditions.
To understand why we recommend seeing a chiropractic sciatica doctor in Chicago and why our non-invasive methods work, it helps to take a closer look at a common underlying cause of sciatica pain.
Just like you’ve probably Googled “What is sciatica?” a time or two in your life, you’ve probably also Googled “What is a pinched nerve?"
The pinching or compression of a spinal nerve can occur because of an injury to one of your spinal discs (such as disc herniation), the development of a bone spur, or even ligaments that have simply increased in size.
Whatever the underlying issue, it's likely to cause noticeable levels of pain and discomfort until you've taken steps to decrease the inflammation and open up space for the affected nerve, and, in many cases, also taken steps to also improve the movement of the surrounding spinal joints.
