Have you ever known someone to suffer from pain, numbness or tingling that travels down their leg, maybe even into their foot? Many people turn to pain relievers. Problem solved. Or is it? Is pain caused by being born with not enough medicine in the body?
Of course not. Medicine may temporarily cover the problem, but it does not fix the cause. Without fixing the cause, the pain almost always returns. Since pain down the leg can make most daily activities difficult, people often overcompensate with excessive pain medication. This is dangerous because pain medication can be highly addictive.
What is pain that travels down the leg? It’s a symptom, the body’s way of alerting us that something is wrong.
The name of this symptom is a condition called sciatica, an inflammation of the sciatic nerve. Sciatica originally begins with stress. Stress, regardless of type, can cause vertebral subluxation. These subluxations keep the spine locked in an unnatural position, preventing the nervous system from working properly which can result in symptoms of sciatica. Removing subluxations can relieve pain without the use of drugs.
A subluxation is a condition in which a spinal segment is out of alignment with the adjacent segment or segments. Nerves which branch off of the spinal cord no longer properly work. Sciatica results when a subluxation has occurred among the lumbar or low back vertebrae that surround the sciatic nerve, but if the sciatic nerve is in the low back, why is pain felt in the leg or foot?
The sciatic nerve has it’s origins in the lower back, but does not end there. It extends down the leg and into the foot. This pain that found in one area, but originates from a problem in another area is called referred pain. The sciatic nerve is the longest and the widest nerve in the body. It supplies the skin of the leg as well a muscles of the back, thigh, leg and foot.
Sciatica often begins after a subluxation has already been present for a while. Ensuring the spine is free of subluxations is important before the pain presents.
Some common culprits are things like obesity which puts tremendous stress upon the lumbar spine, hips, knees and feet. Unable to adapt to the pressure, the spine subluxates and sciatica may result. Another culprit is improper posture while driving in a car which puts severe strain on the low back. To correctly position, place foot on gas pedal, move seat up until you reach 90 degrees. Your body should be pointing forward, spine should be straight.
If driving long distances, a break every 90 minutes to stretch and walk around may be inconvenient, but can save a driver from developing sciatica. These are only a few types of stress that can subluxate the spine causing sciatica. Removing subluxations can relieve pain and strain without the use of drugs.
