There is many cause of sciatica but most common cause of sciatica is herniated discs, but bone spurs and spinal tumors may also be a factor. In many cases, herniation may lead to spinal stenosis, a condition characterized by narrowing of the spaces within the spine, and that can lead to sciatica.
Conditions known to cause sciatic nerve pain include spondylolisthesis (misaligned vertebrae in the lower back), pregnancy and childbirth, and non-spinal disorders such as diabetes, constipation, or sitting on one’s back pocket wallet.
Another frequent cause of sciatica is related to piriformis syndrome. This muscle, connecting to the thighbone and assisting in hip rotation, passes over the sciatic nerve and is susceptible to injury from a slip and fall, hip arthritis, or a difference in leg length. Situations like those can cause piriformis muscle cramping and spasm to develop, pinching the sciatic nerve and causing inflammation and pain.
Less common as causes are spinal infection or tumor.
Diagnosis of Sciatica / Common Question during Chiropractor Consultation:
If you suspect you have sciatica, your doctor or spine specialist will ask you questions about your symptoms and perform some basic exams. This is a way to identify the cause of your pain, tingling, and/or numbness. Your treatment plan will depend on the root cause of your pain. For example, if a herniated disc is the culprit, that’s what will need to be addressed.
During the consultation session Dr. Ravinder Kumar, Pain Management Specialist, Spine Clinic Ghaziabad is having his standard questions :
- When did the sciatic nerve pain start?
- Where do you feel pain? Is it all the way down your leg? Is it in both legs? Does it stop at your knee?
- On a scale from 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst pain imaginable, rate your pain.
- Are you experiencing weakness or tingling in your legs and/or feet?
- What activities did you recently do?
- Does walking uphill or downhill increase pain?
- What have you done for this sciatic nerve pain? Have you tried particular medications or exercises?
- Does anything reduce the pain or make it worse?
“Some time major part of that initial discussion is finding out how long it has been there and how much it affects your daily living,” says Dr. Ravinder Kumar. “What kind of impact does it have on your life, and especially, whether it’s gradually getting better or getting worse.”
Physical Examination of Sciatica in our spine clinic :
Your spine specialist will also perform physical and neurological exams. In the physical exam, your doctor will observe your posture, range of motion, and physical condition, noting any movement that hurts. Your doctor will feel your spine, note its curvature and alignment, and feel for muscle spasm.
During the neurological exam, your spine specialist will test your reflexes, muscle strength, and other nerve changes. For example, Physiotherapist / Chiropractor / Doctor will have you lie down on your back and lift one leg at a time with the other leg flat or bent at the knee. If sciatica is occurring, you’ll likely feel pain in the lifted leg since the nerve is getting compressed.
Imaging Tests also required to diagnose the cause of your sciatica, you may need to have some imaging tests, such as an X-ray or a computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan. If it’s possible a herniated disc or spinal stenosis is causing your sciatica, your doctor may order a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test.
Together, these various exams and tests will give your Physio / Chioropractor / doctor a more complete picture of your sciatic nerve pain. Using this information for a diagnosis will lead to putting a treatment plan together that’s geared toward your specific situation.

- Ice/Cold therapy reduces inflammation and helps to control sciatic pain.
- Ultrasound produces gentle heat created by sound waves that penetrate deep into muscles. Ultrasound increases circulation and helps reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness, and sciatic pain.
- TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) is a small box-like, battery-powered, portable muscle stimulating machine. Variable intensities of electrical current control acute pain and reduce muscle spasms. Larger versions of the home-use TENS units are used by chiropractors, physical therapists, and other rehab professionals.
CHIROPRACTOR ADJUSTMENT TREATMENT:
Spinal manipulation are the core of chiropractic care. Manipulation frees restricted movement of the spine and helps restore misaligned vertebral bodies (subluxation) to their proper position in the spinal column.

Spinal manipulation is proven to be safe and effective.
