Sciatica pain

Do you have pain down your legs? It may be a symptom of sciatica.

What Is Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve exits from the lower vertebra in your back and travels down the leg. Sciatica refers to the irritation of this nerve, which can cause pains in the back, hip, legs and feet.

What Causes Sciatica?

Any issue in the lower back vertebrae or discs can put pressure, irritation and inflammation on that nerve. When it becomes inflamed, you may feel pain travelling down your legs and into your feet. This will lead to muscle weakness, tingling and restricted movement.

What We Can Do

The best way to care for sciatica is to start with a very conservative approach and get you out of pain. A full examination will be performed where your doctor will check your knees, hips, pelvis and vertebrae. We will check for any misalignments such as one leg being longer or an imbalance of muscles on one side that causes vertebrae to move out of position.

This holistic look will focus on finding the cause of your problem and any contributing factors to address all aspects of your pain. We recommend that you consider a long-term care plan so the chances of recurrence are diminished through periodic check-ups and appropriate home care.
