Have you had enough of sciatic pain?
Sciatica can be an extremely painful condition. Essential Chiropractic & Health Care Clinic may provide you with gentle and effective treatment for sciatica pain and associated symptoms.
Sciatica is usually caused by compression of the sciatic nerve, the longest and largest nerve in the human body which originates from the lower spine and runs down both legs. When compressed, the nerve generates symptoms which can include:
- Pains – originating in the lower back or buttock and travelling down an individual leg, sometimes to the foot.
- Sensations – pins and needles, an electric shock feeling, numbness and muscular weakness
- Physical restriction – reduced movement and accompanying lower back pain
We aim to help free the restricted movement of your spine and try to restore any misaligned vertebral bodies to their proper position in your spinal column. By doing this, we may help to reduce the nerve irritability responsible for causing inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, and other symptoms related to sciatica. If you want to get relief from your symptoms, contact us today to book an appointment.
