Sciatica is one of the conditions that our talented chiropractors have the expertise to treat. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body, and it runs from the lower back all the way down through both of your legs. The sciatic nerve is responsible for sending and receiving nerve signals to and from your thighs, legs and feet. Sciatica is actually a group of symptoms that are caused by the sciatic nerve being pinched or inflamed. One of the common symptoms is a shooting pain that runs from your lower back and down into one of your legs. People with sciatica experience numbness or a tingling sensation in the legs and feet, typically only on one side of the body. Sciatica only gets worse over time, and is often aggravated by quick, jolting movements, such as a sneeze. As opposed to medication, chiropractic treatment works to heal the underlying cause of your Sciatica and doesn’t just mask the symptoms. With a chiropractic adjustment, we can restore your spinal function and ease the pressure on your sciatic nerve. Our Portland chiropractors can also recommend beneficial stretches and exercises that will aid you in your long-term recovery.
Whether you have sciatica, or if you are just tired of feeling that “knot” in your neck muscles, our chiropractors can help ease your pain. Feel free to contact us any time. We offer free consultations and we are always happy to answer your questions.
