Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down your legs. The pain is described as “pins and needles.” Other symptoms associated include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity and frequency.
Here at Healthwise Chiropractic, we regularly treat patients with sciatica. Since there are many disorders that cause sciatica, we will determine what is the root cause by taking a patient history during your physical and neurological exam. In some instances, testing such as an x-ray, MRI, CT scan and/or an electromyography might be necessary. These tests help to detect possible chiropractic therapies.
The best care for sciatic pain is to schedule regular chiropractic appointments. This allows us to better detect and correct any spinal dysfunction that may be a source of the sciatic pain. Call our office today at (770) 802-9687 to start living a pain-free life.
