Causes of Sciatic Pain
If you are seeking sciatica pain treatment look no further. Sciatica is an extremely common condition. Nearly everyone suffers from the occasional low back pain at some point in their life and it is often accompanied by sciatica symptoms which are described as shooting or burning pain down the back of one or both legs, past the knee, and typically into the foot. However many people suffer from weekly or even daily sciatica symptoms that are not resolving on their own, sometimes even when there is no back pain either. Our sciatica pain treatment Superior can help!
Sciatica can be very distracting, and even debilitating, halting all daily activities including work. People also often feel hopeless as it seems like exercise and activity often aggravate the sciatica symptoms and only make your quality of life worse and worse.
Dr. Norris has helped hundreds of acute and chronic sciatica sufferers get out of pain with his unique approach. Before working with him most sciatica sufferers have felt like there was little to no hope and that they will “always have sciatica because they just have a bad back.” This is not true!
While sciatica is always painful and discomforting, the causes can range from very simple to very complex. In the vast majority of cases, Dr. Norris finds sciatica is caused by twisting or shifting of the pelvis and lumbar spine, or bulging or herniated discs. This can also cause tight and tender muscles in the glutes, hips, and legs, however, it is distinctly different from what is called Piriformis Syndrome.
What is Piriformis Syndrome?
Piriformis syndrome is a condition in which the piriformis muscles tighten around the sciatic nerve and cause intense pain in the gluteus region and typically down to the knee, but classically stops there and does not go further toward the toes. Simple gluteus, hamstring, and piriformis stretches often are enough alone to get rid of the symptoms (if you haven’t already check out the video above where Dr. Norris goes over the stretches in detail). If the stretches are helping temporarily and the pain is coming back without much progress then you need to have the alignment of your spine assessed as well as the health of the discs.
Again most people will get low back pain and a tight piriformis at some point, that’s life!
The real problem is when sciatica becomes chronic, and then debilitating. Many people let it happen slowly, but surely sciatica begins to control your life. Often times Dr. Norris also finds that there is a history of trauma to the spine, as well as regular ‘micro-traumas’
Micro-traumas are everyday activities such as sitting at a desk or driving for long periods of time, carrying a heavy briefcase or handbag on the same shoulder day after day, or very commonly extensive cell-phone usage leading to loss of cervical lordosis AKA Text Neck or Tech Neck. In fact, Dr. Norris finds is that most people who are suffering from spinal pain and stiffness are experiencing it because of micro-traumas, leading to text-neck, not major traumas or accidents.
