Sciatica is the Result of a Pinched Nerve
The sciatic nerve is actually the largest nerve in your body, and controls just about everything that goes on in your lower extremities. Sciatica can give patients a variety of symptoms including extreme pain going from the low back down the leg, numbness/tingling, and leg weakness. Patients can have all of these symptoms or any combination of them. The crazy thing about sciatica is that it can have a variety of causes.
Sciatica at Chiromed
Chiro-Meds goal is to find out what exactly is causing the irritation to the sciatic nerve and get rid of it. We do a thorough exam, take x-rays, and also evaluate and previous studies such as MRI’s that you have had done previously to determine what the root cause of your conditions might be. Once we have found the problem we put together a treatment plan designed to fix your issue. This is usually a combination of chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and spinal decompression therapy to unpinch the sciatic nerve, and also build spinal and pelvic stability to prevent the condition from coming back in the future.
