Radiating leg pain is the common symptom for irritation of the sciatic nerve, and can greatly interfere with daily life
Sciatica is usually caused by spinal misalignment in the lower back area. When your spinal bones shift out of alignment it adds pressure on your spinal disc, nerve and muscles causing symptoms of pain or health problems.
When the spinal bone in your lower back shift out of alignment and adds pressure on your sciatic nerve, it creates symptoms such as:
Pregnant mothers – The extra weight bearing during pregnancy adds pressure on the sciatic nerve.
Heavy lifting – Professions which require you do heavy lifting, increase the chance of back injuries.
Sedentary lifestyles – Sedentary posture can lead to joint dysfunction. This bad posture can lead to spinal misalignment, especially when repeated daily over a prolonged period of time.
We focus on using a non-invasive approach to restore spinal function, decrease inflammation, and help healing of the surrounding soft tissues. Through regular adjustments to improve alignment and increase joint mobility, we have helped many of our practice members go beyond pain-relief and lead a healthier life.
