HealthSource Chiropractic - Sciatica
The Sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body. It begins at the 4th and 5th lumbar vertebra and the first few segments of the sacrum. It runs vertically downward into the back of the thigh, behind the knee and then goes into the calf muscles and the feet.
Sciatica is a symptom of spinal disorder and creates pain that travels down through the nerve and may be related to MANY areas of pain that you are experiencing.
Many times a bulging or ruptured disc can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause pain, tingling, or numbness through the extensions of the nerve throughout the lower back and lower body.
A visit to your HealthSource Chiropractor will help determine a proper treatment plan to reduce or obliterate the pain that you are experiencing. From a simple adjustment to spinal decompression, we have helped thousands of patients around the country escape the pain from Sciatica.
