We've seen a lot of patients in our Bonita Springs, FL office who are stressed from sciatica, and it's a condition that can result in an extreme amount of agony and difficulties. The good news is that you don't have to suffer, because chiropractic care is a fantastic way to get you out of pain.
The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in your body, and extends from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this essential nerve travels through so many compact openings, it's prone to being irritated or pinched.
Often sciatic pain develops in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; in other cases the nerve can be irritated by the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.
One of the first things Dr. Green will do is conduct a careful evaluation that will help establish the actual root cause of your pain. This might not even be the place where you're feeling symptoms, as the nerve can be pinched much higher up in your body than where you're sensing the pins and needles or numbness.
Once we've diagnosed the start of your issues, we'll be able to start working towards repairing the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or compression on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.
