We've seen a lot of folks in our Rockwall, TX office who are stressed from sciatica, and it's a condition that can result in tremendous distress and disability. The good news is that you don't have to endure this, because chiropractic care is a fantastic way to get you out of pain.
The sciatic nerve is one of the biggest nerves in your body, and goes from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this essential nerve travels through so many tight openings, it's vulnerable to being irritated or pinched.
Often times sciatic pain stems in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; sometimes the nerve can be irritated by the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.
One of the first things Dr. Keith will do is perform a careful examination that will help establish the actual root cause of your discomfort. This might not even be the place where you're feeling symptoms, as the nerve can be squeezed much higher up in your body than where you're experiencing the tingling or numbness.
Once we've discovered the source of your ailments, we'll be able to start working towards repairing the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or compression on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.
