Lower back pain & sciatica

Lower back pain & sciatica

Lower back pain or sciatica can be disabling and when left untreated can stop you from doing the things in life you love.

What is lower back pain and sciatica?

Lower back pain is caused by abnormal movement, misalignment of spinal joints, disc irritation or disc bulging.

Sciatica, which is pain in the lower back, hip and leg, occurs when your sciatic nerve is irritated and is most commonly involved with joint inflammation in the lumbar spine or pelvis. Sciatica can also be caused by disc irritation or disc bulging.

How can chiropractic care help?

Chiropractic care can help treat lower back pain and sciatica by providing long-term relief from symptoms to help you return to an active lifestyle.

While reducing your pain is our primary goal, we don’t take a ‘quick fix’ approach. We spend time finding the cause of your problem and treating it appropriately to improve your overall wellbeing and maintain your the spinal health.

Lower back pain and sciatica can be treated with a chiropractic adjustment and may be accompanied by other things such as massage or stretches. There are many different types of adjustments, but the most common involves a quick, gentle movement from the chiropractor’s hands to a specific joint in the patient.

Scientific studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care manipulation is the most effective form of treatment for dysfunctional problems in the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spines.
