There is help! You could be dealing with inflamed tissue or a bulging or herniated disc that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back and down each leg. It is the largest and longest single nerve in the body. Any problem with the lower spine, subluxations or vertebrae that are out of alignment, can cause problems with the nerves that feed into the sciatic nerve. The pain can be quite severe and last 6 to 8 weeks. There are natural ways to help reduce the pain and to reduce re-occurrence.
Regular spinal adjustments to align the vertebrae was reported to be a very effective and non-invasive treatment in a study published in the 2010 Journal of Manipulative Physiological Therapies. It was found that 60% of the patients that failed other forms of medical treatment benefited from chiropractic care. Chiropractic care was not only beneficial but was without the harmful side effects of drugs or surgery. Yoga and stretching can be helpful as well as acupuncture and massage.
