Back Pain and Sciatica can be persistent and chronic or come and go. It can be a sharp, searing pain, or it can be a dull, nagging ache. Sometimes it can appear spontaneously with no apparent cause. Other times, it may build gradually and make your life difficult.
Regardless of how it presents itself, Back Pain and Sciatica are your body’s warning signs that something is wrong. So, identifying the root cause is critical right from the beginning.
When you ignore the squealing sound on your car as your brake pads are wearing thin, damage spreads to the rotors, worsens, and costs you much more than if you had just replaced the brake pads in the first place. Similarly, your nagging Back Pain and Sciatica can lead to many other problems and eventually lead to a surgical case if you don’t take care of it early.
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a very prevalent condition referring to “pain down the back of your leg,” and it involves some type of abnormal compression or stretching of your Sciatic Nerve.
Your Sciatic Nerve starts in your Lower Back and travels in and out of soft tissues and other structures all the way down to your foot. Abnormal compression, stretching, or loading can occur anywhere along the length of this nerve, and this is exactly what needs to be identified.
Sciatica, like Back Pain, warrants a skilled examination performed by a Doctor of Physical Therapy as there are many different underlying causes. The reason for your Sciatica needs to be identified before any form of treatment can be recommended.
A skilled Doctor of Physical Therapy can determine precisely where the problem is and, more often than not, fix the abnormality and free you of this relentless pain referred to as Sciatica.
A Solution for Back Pain and Sciatica in Yorkville, NY
Medication is a quick fix, but it is far from a solution. It can help you get some much-needed sleep and will block your pain temporarily, but don’t stop there. If you don’t identify and fix the underlying cause of your Back Pain and Sciatica, it will never go away completely and will likely haunt you for years. Your absolute best approach is to have a comprehensive Spine and Sciatica examination provided by a Doctor of Physical Therapy.
Back Pain can simply result from poor postural habits or improper lifting technique that places abnormal loading stress on muscles, ligaments, spinal joints, intervertebral discs, and nerves. Back Pain can be caused by tension, compression, or just plain overload.
Your deep abdominals and other spinal muscles may be weak and unable to support specific work or recreational activities. Your bed may be part of the problem, or even the fact that your mom, dad, grandmother, or grandfather suffered from Spine conditions can be contributory in some way.
Driving and/or sitting in the office for prolonged periods can weaken the discs in your back and lead to disc bulging and/or disc herniations. Depending on your activities and/or positions, your spine or particular vertebrae may move too much or not enough. These abnormalities can cause undue stress on other bodily structures.
Your Back Pain can stem from Arthritis and/or other degenerative disease in your Spine. The bony outlets through which Your Spinal Cord and Nerves travel can be narrowed or obstructed in some other way. In fact, your Back Pain could have absolutely nothing to do with your back and could represent some other underlying condition.
These are all just a tiny percentage of the vast complexities leading to Back Pain, so you can begin to realize the importance of an in-depth, skilled Spine examination.
You can’t fix a problem if you don’t first identify it. If you treat the symptoms, you will feel better temporarily. Still, if you treat the underlying cause, you can get rid of the Back Pain for good or at least manage it successfully and independently.
