Sciatica Posted on June 23, 2018 We help treat sciatica. We have been here for almost 15 years and in that time I have seen thousands of people who have sciatica. In fact, before becoming a chiropractor that helps sciatica, I had sciatica myself! It was awful…I limped around the golf course like a wounded dog! It was the worst pain of my life. As such, I have spent a great deal of time trying to help people that suffer from Sciatica. The techniques we use here are significantly different than most other offices and our results show it. The sciatic nerve is made up of four different nerves that come out of the low back. The sciatic nerve is made up of 4 nerves…the fourth and fifth lumbar nerves and the first and second sacral nerves. When the vertebrae or pelvis aren’t moving properly they irritate one or more of the nerves and the nerve signal is altered. The signal down the leg (primarily the back of the leg) is altered and the pain goes down through the person’s gluts, down the hamstring area and can even go down the back of the calf into the foot. Whenever we meet someone that has even the slightest discomfort in the low back or in the hips/glutes/hamstrings we try to act right away, Sciatica tends to worsen over time and the quicker we can get to it the better. There are not many chiropractic offices in Burlington that are as good in treating sciatica as we are. We have many people coming to our office after having seen another chiropractor in the past (with mediocre success). I know I can help you…just give us a chance.
