Sciatic pain in Coon Rapids MN is a condition that we see often at Caring Chiropractic Center. Most people come in suffering from chronic bouts of low back pain which over the years have deteriorated and now progressing down the back of their leg. This can be relentless and debilitating pain that limits functionality which produces an inability to walk, stand, foot drop, numbness in the feet, aching legs, sharp pain in the buttocks, tingling in the leg and difficulty moving or trouble sleeping. Does this sound like your sciatica in Coon Rapids?


The sciatic nerve runs from the bottom three joints in the lower lumbar spine down the back of the buttocks under the back of the leg muscles and travels all the way down to the sole of the foot. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in our body. It is about the diameter of your pinky finger. This is a nerve that carries electrical impulses from the lower lumbar spine to all the muscles, and joints in the lower legs. The pain people most often feel can be sharp stabbing pain, which is a specific line down the back of the leg to the knee or it can be it even be so bad that it is a pulsating throbbing pain, which does not allow you to put weight on the leg. Usually, this pain will reside on either the right or the left side. This occurs rarely on both sides at the same time. We often see people in the age group of 40-60 with this type of condition. Statistically, 80% of people by the time they reach the age of 40, start suffering from degenerating low back pain, which contributes to the cause of the sciatic inflammation. We find that in our office people who sit at sedentary jobs, such as sitting at a desk or working on a computer, suffer greater than people who are up moving and physical. The activities of bearing down, coughing, and sneezing, can cause an exacerbation of sciatic pain symptoms.


Our treatment for sciatic pain is very successful! We find people with sciatica, where the nerve is inflamed, aggravated or irritated is due to compression on the nerves. This compression comes from the lower lumbar spine. Whether it is a bone out of place pinching on the nerve or a swollen disc, (which is swelling back into the spinal canal) compressing on the nerve, the treatment is very straightforward in our office. Once we do a thorough evaluation and analyze the exact cause of the problem, we have very specific techniques and treatments toward resolving, realigning and retraining the joints in the spine to un-pinch these nerves. We find that our patients are quite pleased and excited about the success and results they get with none evasive Chiropractic care. There are no drugs or surgery involved. It is just truly treating the cause of the problem and allowing the body to heal itself once the irritation is removed from the nerve.

The prevention for these types of conditions is best achieved when one chooses to embrace the lifestyle of flexibility and functionality. What I mean by this is the journey of life is a journey of maintenance. Our bodies are designed to be flexible. Our joints and muscles are designed to move. Nerves are designed to be uninhibited, un-pinched, and carry electrical impulses from the brain to the cells of the body. When static tension, stiffness and tightness, restrictions, and limitations in flexibility start developing in the body, irritation begins developing. When we can deal with these natural occurrences before the process starts, and use natural treatments to restore the function back into our body's patterns of movement, we are doing the best we can toward allowing the body to express life at its fullest potential. Using Chiropractic from a wellness perspective is a wise choice, by keeping the joints in the spine movable and flexible and thereby preventing sciatic pain.
