Regain Your Quality of Life

Back pain and sciatica can cause debilitating pain that prevents you from enjoying your normal daily activities. Instead of resigning yourself to a life of chronic pain, contact the medical professionals at Wellspring Health to see if chiropractic care is right for you, and schedule an appointment at one of our locations in Orange City, Daytona Beach, and Altamonte Springs.

Sciatica is frequently confused with general back pain, but there are some specific symptoms to look for if you suspect you may have sciatic. A few of the symptoms to be aware of include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Pain in the gluteus or one leg that is worse when sitting
  • Hip pain
  • Burning or tingling down one leg
  • Weakness or numbness in one leg or foot
  • Constant pain on one side of the gluteus muscles
  • Shooting pain that makes standing difficult

Back Pain Vs. Sciatica

Back pain can be caused by a number of other injuries or conditions, but sciatica is generally easy for your doctor to diagnose since it has specific symptoms, which include pain that travels from the back down into a leg or foot.

Sciatica is the result of a bulging disc or herniated disc that applies pressure to the nerve roots along the sciatic nerve, which results in irritation to the nerves and is registered in the brain as intense pain, numbness, and tingling. Depending on the way that your sciatic nerve is responding to the pressure, you could feel pain every time a muscle in your lower body contracts.

Treatment Options

There are a number of different treatment options that your doctor can discuss with you. At Wellspring Health, your chiropractor will first assess the underlying cause of your back pain or sciatica so that they can recommend the best treatment option for your situation. Their goal is to address the cause of the pain, not the symptoms.

Additional treatment options could include massage therapy, medication, and hot and cold compresses. Massage therapy helps the affected muscles begin to relax, which will help future chiropractic adjustments to be more effective. Depending on the severity of your pain, the medication could either be over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription strength.
