Most chronic back pain and injuries to the back are mechanical in nature and can be caused by any combination of sprained ligaments, strained muscles, bulging discs and pinched nerves, any or all of which can lead to pain. Your lumbar spine could be normal and suddenly become injured in a fall, accident or sports injury.
More often than not, however, weaknesses from less severe, earlier injuries accumulate and compound as the years go by, leading to a protruding, herniated or bulging disc that can cause a painful pinched nerve. When the sciatic nerve is feeling pressure it can be felt in the lower back, and can radiate into the buttock, hip and/or various parts of the leg and foot. In addition to the pain, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins and needles or tingling, and difficulty in supporting weight on the involved leg.
At Wynne Chirorpactic Center, P.A, our Wilmington back doctor focuses on non-surgical spinal decompression therapy, a back treatment
that works to heal your back without surgery and help relieve the pain of a pinched sciatic nerve.
