The sciatic nerve starts at the lower back and runs down the back of each leg into the feet. It’s the longest nerve in the body! Sciatica, or sciatic neuralgia, is a condition that refers to the pain caused by problems in the sciatic nerve. It can come and go throughout a person’s lifetime, but when it is acting up, it can cause a great deal of discomfort to the patient. Left unchecked, the nerve could become permanently damaged. So if your sciatica has become a problem, it’s important to get it checked out from the team at Morelli Chiropractic.

common causes of sciatica

  • When the vertebrae in the lower back are compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve can become pinched and irritated, which causes the pain, discomfort, and injury. Our work, family needs, and lifestyles can create a perfect environment for sciatica.

  • Sitting for long periods of time (road trips or at a desk)

  • Poor posture

  • Repetitive use injuries

  • Trauma (lifting weights, picking something up)
