Common Causes of Sciatica | Chiropractor for Sciatica in West Omaha, NE

Hello, I’m Dr. Joel Marley from Family First Chiropractic. Today, we’re diving into the common causes of sciatica and how you can combat this condition through simple, effective strategies.

The Reality of Prolonged Sitting

One of the primary culprits behind sciatica is our sedentary lifestyle. Many of us have jobs that require sitting at a desk for hours or involve lengthy commutes. This constant sitting puts undue pressure on our spine and can lead to sciatica.

Solution: Try setting a reminder to stand up and walk around for at least five minutes every hour. This brief activity helps oxygenate your body, stimulates circulation, and keeps your joints in motion, reducing the risk of sciatica.

The Impact of Improper Movement

Our daily activities and the way we move can significantly influence our risk of developing sciatica. Incorrect bending, twisting, and leaning can strain the lower back and contribute to sciatic pain.

Building a Strong Foundation

A weak foundation, including the ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, and lumbar spine, can also lead to sciatica. At Family First Chiropractic, we focus on restoring a stronger foundation by improving the function of these critical joints.

Our Approach: We provide our practice members with the tools and knowledge to maintain proper motion and lead an active, sciatica-free life. This includes personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each individual.
