If you are suffering with sciatica, whether it’s from a recent injury or you’ve had it (and perhaps lower back problems too) for many years, or have been told to ‘live with it’, we will likely be able to help you. Chiropractic can help almost all people with sciatica, both mild and severe, and is a very popular reason for visiting us. It is safe, comfortable and effective.
You might be familiar with some of these symptoms – shooting pains, numbness, tingling, tightness, dull aches, sharp pains, electric shocks, stiffness, loss of movement, toothaches – all of which can vary in how bad they are and where you feel them! It is quite common for sciatica to be felt anywhere from and including the low back, bottom, groin, thigh, leg, foot and even toes!
Usually you will find that some things make you worse – often sitting, stretching out your leg, coughing, sneezing, trying to bend down, lifting and even turning over in bed. Some things may give you temporary relief – gently moving your body, changing positions, lying down. We understand how difficult it is when these problems stop you living and enjoying a normal life.
There are many types of sciatic pain that we can help you with. The most common cause is that one or more of the bones in your spine can become stuck and out of position. This interferes with the sciatic nerves that live in your spine and come out of it and into your leg (see trapped nerves). Because many of the muscles in your bottom, back and thigh are connected to your sciatic nerve, you may also experience muscle spasm.
Other problems may also add to your sciatic pain, including spondylosis, disc injuries, nerve root problems, spondylolisthesis, facet joint problems, and stenosis. These too can usually be helped with Chiropractic care.
We offer Chiropractic care which 1) helps relieve your problem, 2) corrects the underlying cause, and 3) prevents it returning so that you as a whole stay well and healthy instead.We are here to help you get back to a normal, happy, healthy life again, please ring 01942 498480 to arrange an appointment today.
