Do you ever feel a shooting pain down the back of your leg when you get up from a chair or start walking? This shooting pain can often be linked to a condition called Sciatica.
Sciatica is the term for a irritated or inflamed nerve that originates in the lower back that travels down the back of the leg. This irritation can be caused by a number of different conditions that chiropractors are trained to diagnosis and treat. Sciatica can be caused by Subluxation (spinal misalignment), muscle imbalance, nerve entrapment, nerve impingement, and disc problems.
Chiropractic care successfully treats sciatic pain by not only minimizing the obvious symptoms, but by determining and eliminating the underlying cause of the problem. Sciatica can be a very painful and debilitating condition, AND if not properly addressed can lead to permanent nerve damage. If you think you may have a sciatic condition, consult Dr. Paez for a complete examination.
