Starting in the lower back, the sciatic nerve goes all the way down the leg. Sciatic nerve injury and sciatica pain creates many painful symptoms such as:
- Muscle Weakness
- Sciatica may be caused by an injury such as an auto accident, a sports injury, or it may be caused by poor posture. The sciatic nerve can be pinched in the lower back.
Our chiropractic doctors will diagnose sciatica with a series of orthopedic testing. Through gentle chiropractic manipulation and physical medicine procedures, sciatica symptoms can be reduced. When the spine is aligned properly, patient symptoms will begin to decrease. With some chiropractic adjustments and physical therapy, sciatica can be treated effectively.
