Sciatica is a severe pain in the leg caused from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, according to Dr. Brian of Delta Chiropractic Associates Inc. Conservative chiropractic care can be quite successful in removing the cause of sciatica and low back pain.
The sciatic nerves are the largest (and longest) nerves of the body, running down the back of each leg. When these nerves are irritated or affected by the inflammation of nearby soft tissues, doctors refer to this as sciatica.
Dr. Brian states, “In the past, treatment has involved pain medications, muscle relaxers, physical therapy, and even surgery. The chiropractic approach is to use carefully directed and controlled pressure to remove the interference from spinal structures. Chiropractic “adjustments” can be quite effective in reducing nerve irritation and its associated pain”.
“Sciatica, like other health problems that can be traced to the spine, often respond dramatically to the restoration of normal spinal function through chiropractic care,” explains Dr. Brian.
