Sciatica

Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the human body, is irritated or compressed. Symptoms appear as numbness, tingling, or shooting pain in the lower back, buttox, or upper legs.

Causes of Sciatica

The most common cause of sciatica is spinal misalignment, putting pressure on one of the five main roots of the sciatic nerve.  Other issues such as herniated discs, piriformis muscle entrapment , or arthritic changes can also cause this.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

Sciatica is alleviated when the pressure is taken off the nerve. Through a series of gentle spinal adjustments, a chiropractor can help get the pressure off the sciatic nerve.  We find the root of the problem through the comprehensive exmaination and x-rays.  If needed Dr. Davis will refer out to get an MRI and works with local radiologists help diagnose the problem.
