Sciatica



 
 
 
The sciatic nerves are the largest in the body running down the back of each leg.  The pain caused by irritation of these sciatic nerves can for some be almost unbearable with little or no relief.

But few people connect the problem to the spine where the sciatic nerve roots exit from the spinal cord.  When these nerve roots are irritated or pinched it can cause an extremely painful flare-up of one or both of the nerves down the legs, causing extreme pain.

What seems like an insurmountable problem can respond dramatically to the restoration of normal spinal function, taking the pressure off those major nerve roots.

Like other health problems the cause must be found and corrected.

To help find that cause we offer:
  • A Private Consultation with the Doctor of Chiropractic
  • A Thorough Examination including Neurological, Orthopaedic & Blood Pressure Tests
  • X-Rays, if necessary
  • A Verbal Report of our Findings and thorough Explanation of the X-Rays
After which you should know more about your body and the problems you are experiencing than you ever have before.  Whether you go ahead with treatment as always is entirely your decision.

Call TODAY for an Appointment.
