Sciatica Q & A

Optimal Spine Wellness Center

What causes sciatica pain? 

The majority of people suffering with sciatica, or shooting leg pain, have an underlying structural problem of the spine, typically found in the low back. These structural problems can result from many things including:

  • Poor posture
  • Improper sleeping positions
  • Spinal misalignment
  • Childhood falls
  • Text neck
  • Sports injuries
  • Prolonged periods of sitting
  • Car accidents

What is unique about how Optimal Spine Wellness treats sciatica?

Unlike traditional chiropractic, CBP goes one step further to also correct the source of the problem by restoring proper spinal structure, as seen by before-and-after correction x-rays. A CBP-trained doctor is specifically trained to straighten and correct your spine in a way that other doctors are not. With CBP, patients not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as the proper spinal structure is restored and nerve function is returned, they notice the resolution of many other conditions as well.

Are there things I can do at home to help?

Absolutely. Once Dr. Jensen finds the root cause of your sciatica, he will give you a treatment plan specifically designed to correct the underlying problem. In most cases, this treatment plan will also include a home rehab protocol. This protocol will not be a one size fits all approach. Your home rehab protocol will be specific to your needs and will accelerate the healing process in order to get you pain-free as quickly as possible and prevent future sciatica. This protocol may include:

  • Corrective orthotic devices
  • Structure-specific rehab
  • Posture-supportive exercises
  • Dietitian-led nutrition plan
  • Supportive nutrient supplementation

I experience other symptoms as well. Could they be related?

Definitely. Many times the underlying cause of sciatica can also be the cause of many other health problems. When the spine shifts out of its healthy position due to a sudden injury or to a repetitive stress like sitting every day, this causes enormous stress to the bones, tissue and nerves. The resulting stress can cause pain and damage to the nearby structures and to any tissues and organs that rely on those damaged nerves for proper function. This is why most patients not only report relief from pain and discomfort, but as the proper spinal structure is restored, and nerve function is returned, they notice the resolution of other conditions as well. These conditions can include:

  • Low back pain
  • Numbness and tingling through the legs and feet
  • Mid back pain
  • Digestive problems
  • Hip pain
  • Knee pain
  • Reproductive problems
