How Sciatica Begins in Oak Ridge TN

Sciatica results from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve in the lower back. This may be caused by wrong or sudden movements that pinch the nerve and cause pain. Sciatica can also come as a result after a hip injury, major surgery on lower body, or a muscle imbalance, all of which may cause a rotated pelvis at the sacroiliac joint. The sciatic nerve runs next to this joint and can cause pain when rubbing together. Another common source of sciatic pain is in the buttocks. Rather than run under the many muscles in this area, as it should, sometimes the sciatic nerve instead runs through the piriformis muscle. Simple movements such as stretching and driving are painful because the muscle contracts and presses against the sciatic nerve. The most effective treatment for sciatic pain is chiropractic care.
