Sciatica is a nerve condition that occurs when pain radiates along your sciatic nerve from the lower back to the leg and foot. It commonly develops when a herniated disc compresses the spine, however, other causes like bone spurs, extra weight on the spine, or tightening of the piriformis muscle deep within the glute can also cause similar symptoms to occur. Sciatica can be acute or chronic, mild or severe, one sided or both sided, depending on the causal factor. It is also frequently accompanied by numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness.
Along with alleviating pain, Acupuncture and Chiropractic can help restore health and circulation to the injured nerves, and gradually restore function to affected areas. Sciatica can be a complicated condition which may also require X-Ray and/or MRI imaging. Our seasoned practitioners will work with you to properly identify and address the root cause and prevent re-injury.
