We help people with sciatic pain. Sciatic pain typically radiates from the lower back, down the hamstring and into the calf area. The pain can be sharp, shooting, burning, electric or stabbing. It is caused by an irritation, inflammation, pinching, or compression of a nerve in the lower back due to what we call subluxation, where the bones are out of their normal alignment, creating pressure on those nerves.
To help a patient with sciatic pain, we first do a thorough examination. We then take x-rays to accurately locate the cause of the sciatic pain. After that, we put together a game plan consisting of chiropractic adjustments, stretches, strengthening exercises, and posture building.
We do not want to put a Band-aid on the problem, like a temporary fix. We want to really correct the subluxations or the imbalances once and for all.
