It is due to an irritation or pinching of the spinal nerve roots in the lower region of the back. Many people visit their family physician for help in caring for sciatica. This usually results in a suggestion of an over-the-counter or prescription medication. While this may give some temporary relief, unless the underlying reason for sciatica is addressed, it will probably continue to occur.

Keeping the Muscles Stretched Can Relieve Sciatica

By stretching the muscles using simple exercises, sciatica may improve. Here are some good exercises to try. Please, always consult with your doctor or chiropractor before trying these.

Each exercise should be held for 30 seconds and then rest and repeat in three sets one time a day.

Another important step, if you suffer from sciatica, is to visit us here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California. We can help determine if the cause of sciatica has to do with a misalignment of the bones of the upper neck and explain why this can cause lower back pain. We can then work to correct this problem and aid in giving you some relief from sciatica.

Therefore, it may be surprising to learn the pain may actually begin with a misalignment in the bones of the upper cervical spine, particularly the C1 and C2 vertebrae. Let’s take a closer look at how this develops.

The Effect of Upper Cervical Misalignments on Back Pain

When one has a misalignment of either the atlas (C1) or axis (C2) bones, the spine shifts out of its normal position to compensate for it, negatively impacting the muscles of the entire back. The pelvic area may shift and cause one hip to become higher than the other. One leg then becomes shorter than the other, leading to pain in the lower back.  The pain will more-than-likely be one-sided and may be felt in one hip only. The longer this situation is allowed to remain, the more problems ensue. The way a person walks can be affected, resulting in pain in the feet and/or legs, sprains, and knee problems.

Finding Help for Lower Back Pain

Many people cope with this type of pain by reaching for the nearest bottle of pills. True, this may help cover up the symptoms on a temporary basis, allowing a person to make it through the day. However, if one is seeking long-term, natural care, it is a good idea to come see us here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California.

We examine our patients to find the exact location of the misalignment and them we work to correct the problem using a gentle method. We do not have to crack or pop the spine to get results. The technique used encourages the bones of the neck to move back into place naturally, causing long lasting relief.

The story of Nora Sue can show how helpful upper cervical care can be. She suffered from back pain so bad that she was required to use a cane for 6 years. Within 3 months of receiving upper cervical care, she was able to get around without it. Our patients report similar results.

It seems as if almost everyone has a bout of it at one time or another. In some cases, it may lead to sciatica – pain that radiates from the lower back through the hips, buttocks, and down one leg. The cause of this is the sciatic nerve, one of the largest in the body, being irritated or pinched. In recent years, it has been noted that approximately $80 billion is spent on medicine, gadgets, support belts, shoe inserts, and similar items to relieve lower back pain.

It may sound a little strange, but may cases of lower back pain are connected to a misalignment of the bones of the upper neck. The C1 and C2 vertebrae are quite different from the other vertebrae of the spine. They are able to move freely without interlocking joints. While this is good when it comes to the range of motion for the neck and head, it also puts them at risk for being able to move out of place easily. A misalignment at this vital location can cause the rest of the spine to compensate by shifting and readjusting. A common result is lower back pain because this is where the greatest compensations take place. No matter what is done to the lower back, unless the underlying cause in the neck is addressed, pain levels may not improve, or pain may stop but then return.

Finding Natural Relief for Lower Back Pain in Redwood City, California

At our upper cervical chiropractic practice, we recognize that a healthy upper cervical spine is vital to the overall health of our patients. We look closely at one’s posture to see just how the head is aligned with the rest of the body, and we also use specialized x-rays to help us find the exact location of the problem in the neck. Once this is determined, we use a very gentle amount of pressure to a specific area of the neck to help the bones to realign on their own. Once the head is realigned over the spine, muscle tension and nerve irritation can clear up. This is often all that is needed to help patients find some relief from lower back pain. Some see it go away completely.

It is known for:

It may seem strange, but the actual cause of sciatica may be located much higher in the spine. In fact, it can be due to a misalignment of the upper neck. The entire spine works as a unit. Therefore, a problem in one area can affect another area.

The top bones of the neck – the C1 (atlas) and C2 (axis) – are easily misaligned due to their range of motion. It only takes a misalignment of ¼ of a millimeter to throw off the entire balance of the spine affecting the shoulders, hips, lower back, and overall posture. This may create an irritation with the sciatic nerve located near the hips. The best way to correct this problem is to address the underlying misalignment.

Caring for Sciatica Naturally

Medication is often the go-to answer for pain relief. While this may offer some comfort to the one suffering, it is not the end-all answer. Medication may also be accompanied by unwanted side effects and is not helpful in every case. To deal effectively with the pain of sciatica, one must address the root cause.

Advanced Spinal Care, we first examine the neck to find out whether or not the problem is being caused by a misalignment in this sensitive area. If so, we use a gentle method that encourages the bones to move back into place without popping or cracking the spine or neck. Once the adjustment is provided, the body begins to repair the damage. This may correct the irritation that was being put on the sciatic nerve and can decrease or even eliminate the pain of sciatica.
