Anna, thanks for the feedback! This is so rewarding, it makes the hard work worth every minute! We are very happy to hear you and your husband are responding so well to treatment.
According to The American Chiropractic Association The term Sciatica is used to describe persistent pain felt along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, down through the buttock, and into the lower leg.
Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low-back and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is actually a set of symptoms—not a diagnosis for what is irritating the nerve root and causing the pain.Source
What are my treatment options?
For most people, sciatica responds very well to conservative care, including chiropractic. Keeping in mind that sciatica is a symptom and not a stand-alone medical condition, treatment plans will often vary depending on the underlying cause of the problem.
When you visit you will receive an examination then the Doctor and taff will typically develop a treatment plan for you that may include:
- A chiropractic adjustment (either hands on, with the Pro-Adjuster or both)
- Heat or cold therapy
- Therapeutic stretching
- Strengthening exercises
- Treatment with the Vax-D Genesis
- A tinging treatment with electrical stimulatio
