So many of us spend countless hours each week sitting in front of a computer working without proper ergonomics. As a result, you may feel all types of pain, discomfort and stiffness in your lower back and neck. One other thing you might not immediately connect to a stationary job is sciatica and leg pain. St. Paul Chiropractic & Natural Medicine Center can help you find relief from all types of pain related to extended periods of sitting.
Causes Of Sciatica Pain And Discomfort
Sciatica pain can be excruciating. You may feel shooting pain from your buttocks all the way down to your feet, numbness and other significant pain and discomfort. It generally affects one side of your body and can be mild, moderate or severe. This is usually caused by an irritation, inflammation, pinching or compression of a nerve in the lower back. This type of pain can really interfere with you completing the activities you love and even routine daily tasks like cleaning and sitting in your car comfortably. There are many different causes for sciatica and leg pain – some of the most common causes of this pressure on your sciatic nerve are stenosis, a herniated disc, and even routine lifting or physical activity. It is also common during pregnancy.
