Sciatica impacts a nerve extending down the back of each leg -the Sciatic nerve.

What You Need to Know About Sciatica

Nerve compression may lead to paralysis of one limb, a reduction of sensation in the limb or group of joints, as well as sleeplessness.

The proper diagnosis of Sciatica is crucial. A Chiropractor assesses the patient and medical history to ascertain root cause of the patient's pain. Treatment is sometimes based on the theory that a lack of spinal motion contributes to pain and decreased function. Ice/Cold can oftentimes reduce inflammation and aids in decreasing sciatic pain.

Muscle-Spasms---What-Are-They

Ultrasound is a mild warmth created by sound waves, which penetrates deep into cells. It boosts circulation and reduces pain, numbness, swelling, stiffness, and muscle fatigue.

Spinal adjustments are at the heart of Chiropractic care. Manipulation increases restricted motion of the spine and helps to bring the body back into a balanced state. Adjustment techniques differ in velocity and can range from firm to extremely gentle. Most Upper Cervical Chiropractors perform a very gentle adjustment. Mastery of every technique is an art, which requires precision and skill. A competent Upper Cervical Chiropractor is worth his weight in gold!!
