How your nerves may cause you to experience lower back pain in Edison, NJ
You may not know exactly what may be causing your lower back pain, but if you live in Edison, New Jersey, Arrow Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation is here to help you. We know that one issue that may result in lower back problems is nerve issues. Your nerves are responsible for sending signals from your body parts to your brain. They allow you to feel sensations like heat, cold, and, unfortunately, pain. Nerves that are especially prone to problems can be found in your lower back.
Our team knows that the nerves in your spine are particularly prone of issues. One reason for this is that there is so little space in the spinal canal that runs through your vertebrae. For this reason, any misalignment of your vertebrae may result in their rubbing on your spinal nerves, and this rubbing typically leads to a pain response. An example of a condition that may be caused by nerve issues is sciatica.
One thing that we tell patients about sciatica is that it’s caused by an issue with the sciatic nerve. This nerve starts in your lower back and runs down the backs of your legs. Issues with your sciatic nerve can result in a wide array of symptoms. For instance, you may experience sharp, burning pains in your lower back, buttocks and legs. Our team also commonly hears our sciatica patients complain of tingling in their legs or feet.
Our team is ready to help you with sciatica or any other form of lower back problem. It doesn’t take much for you to begin your treatment. Just contact the Arrow Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation team at our Edison, New Jersey location today, and schedule your first session that may put you on the path to lower back pain relief.
