Sciatica In Chanhassen

According to many medical doctors, sciatic pain is one of the most common conditions that bring people into the emergency room. In America, millions of people experience sciatic pain, and majority of those people never find a solution. We hope this article from PROSPINE Health & Injury Center helps you to better understand this painful condition.

Sciatic pain is described differently from patient to patient. The pain can be anywhere from an annoying discomfort to a severe agonizing pain. The pain typically only manifests in one leg at a time, and can vary between the low back to the foot.

The Sciatic Nerve

This nerve begins at the spinal cord, and passes through the low back to the sacrum (tailbone). From there the nerve travels to the hip and then down the leg. The spine is complex, and since the nerve weaves through many structures, it can be difficult to locate the problem. Doctors of chiropractic in Chanhassen are specially trained do help sciatic pain patients.

Your doctor will perform an exam to find the misalignment that may be causing the sciatica to occur. It is important to share all the information about your health and medical history so your chiropractor can accurately assess your condition. It is common for patients to first experience the pain when they simply bent over to pick up something as small as a pencil.

Correcting the Cause

The amount of time necessary to correct the issue depends on many factors, including:

  • Body build
  • Age
  • Activity level
  • Compliance

What some consider being the most important factor is how long the condition has been there. The longer a condition has been left untreated, the longer it has had time to worsen. When patients take care of sciatic pain properly they are often surprised at how quickly their symptoms dissipate.


A large amount of people turn to medication as a first course of treatment, and once the pain is beyond what medication can manage surgery is the next and final option. Surgery is a very invasive option that can have permanent consequences. Before you go that route you owe it to yourself to explore less invasive options such as chiropractic care.
