The most common cause of sciatica is when the vertebrae in your lower back area become misaligned and create direct pressure on the nerve roots that feed into the sciatic nerve. This condition is known as a vertebral subluxation.

“People often come into our Life Within Center and want a 'sciatica cure' in the form of 'stretches for sciatica' although they don't know if they truly have sciatica. Some people even think they have to have surgery for sciatica,” said Dr. Marc Gottlieb when asked if he sees many people who struggle with this health challenge. “The bottom line is people experiencing pain should seek out a qualified chiropractor to truly diagnose the condition, but most people only become aware that something is wrong after experiencing a great deal of pain,” continued San Diego Chiropractor, Dr. Gottlieb.

True Sciatica is described as pain that radiates from the low back, into the buttocks area and continues down into the lower leg. Sciatica can be very excruciating and debilitating to many people who suffer from it. When Dr. Marc was asked how this happens he responded, “The most common cause of sciatica is when the vertebrae in your lower back area become misaligned and create direct pressure on the nerve roots that feed into the sciatic nerve. This condition is known as a vertebral subluxation. These subluxations can be caused by any one of these stressors: physical, chemical or emotional.”

In his new “sciatica treatment San Diego” blog post, Dr. Marc explains how this pain can start and references strategies to avoid surgery for sciatica through various measures. Dr. Gottlieb also discusses topics such as sciatica during pregnancy and how the body becomes physically stressed due to the natural weight gain of women in the later term of pregnancy. Dr. Gottlieb concludes, “Exercises and stretching for sciatic are very important, however the most effective way to address this condition and get relief from sciatica is through Chiropractic Care. A Chiropractor who is an expert in sciatic pain and correcting vertebral subluxations can help relieve Sciatica.”
