Sciatica.jpg

Sciatica is a term meaning "pain down the leg" which can be characterized a "pinching feeling” of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerves in the body are the thickest and longest nerves, in certain areas the sciatica nerve can be the diameter of a nickel, and running down from the lower to the back of each leg. The nerve fibers are those that originate from the lumbar spinal nerves. When the sciatic nerve get inflamed, occluded or affected by the irritation of injured tissues in a closely related area. Sometimes this nerve can be strangulated by very tight muscles, in some patients the nerve travels in the middle of a muscle, which coined the term piriformis syndrome.

Each person varies in their symptomatology of sciatica. The most frequently reported symptoms noted are a constant dull or boring type of pain down the back of the leg and can even travel into the foot. Loss of sensation or a pins and needles feeling can also be signs of sciatica.

The causes of sciatica can include:

  • Disc herniations in the lumbar region.
  • Subluxated vertebra of the lumbar or sacrum .
  • Injured soft tissue which either inflames the sciatica nerve or compresses the nerve.
  • Or all three of the above mentioned in combination.

The best option for all three of the above mentioned is chiropractic first.

For the very small group of people who do not improve from conservative care, a referral to the appropriate specialist will be made to find other options where the patient could be benefit from the treatment..

There are a lot of different options for treatment of the symptoms of sciatica including medication and surgical intervention, however almost all physicians would agree that conservative care should be use before any other aggressive procedure such as medication, injections, or surgery.

Testimonials

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "I don't usually write to many reviews but I was compelled bases on my experience. I have only been going a few visits now but I was so impressed with the staff and the quality of care and customer service. The front desk was awesome soon as I entered they greeted me and asked if I wanted coffee, water or a breakfast bar, seriously way more than I expected from a doctor's office. They saw me very quickly and did what I thought was a very complete exam, took some x-rays and showed me my problems. The doctor explained everything to me in plain English and quelled any concerned that I had. Treatment felt great and is effective as I'm already starting to feel better. Will recommend!"

  • "Dr. Bryan Stanton is by far the most outstanding Chiropractor I have ever been to. My experience with him was so positive and really changed my life for the better. He took the time to educate me in so many ways on preventing and correcting my dibilitating neck pain. His care and concern is practically unmatched in today's world of professionals. For this reason I'd like to share my positive experience with others and so that they also migh experience the absolute best in chiropractic care."
