Leg Pain / Sciatica

leg-painWhat Causes Sciatica?
Sciatica is an inflammation of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in your body. It runs from your lower spine, through your buttocks, and into your leg and foot. When the sciatic nerve is inflamed, it can cause numbness, tingling, pain, or weakness in your lower back and leg.

How Does a Chiropractor Treat Sciatica?
We are trained to restore the health of your spine and sciatic nerve. Special chiropractic methods, called adjustments, may relieve the irritation that's causing your low-back or leg pain.

Spinal Adjustments
Your treatment depends on the cause of your sciatica. During a spinal adjustment, the doctor gently presses on your spine to relieve irritated nerves and increase movement in your joints.

Related treatment
The doctor may suggest other types of treatment to relieve irritated nerves. These may include electrical stimulation ice, heat, massage, traction or ultrasound. The doctor can discuss these with you.
