Did you know if you have sciatica pain a chiropractor can help?

Sciatica pain happens when the sciatic nerve, a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of each leg (sometimes even to the toes), is inflamed or injured, putting pressure on the sciatic nerve and causing pain in the lower back that spreads to the hip, buttocks and leg. Patients often describe a shooting pain that radiates from the back and rear to the leg and can be worse when sitting. Typically it affects only one side of the body. Sometimes there is tingling, weakness, numbness or difficulty moving the leg. The pain can be severe in some individuals and lead to insomnia, as well.

Treatments can include medication such as anti-inflammatory or muscle relaxants, but did you know that regular chiropractic care also can help the body heal itself through a non-invasive (non-surgical), drug-free approach? Read more
