Sciatica is a condition that’s mostly likely caused by a pinched nerve that affects the area near the base of the spine. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and extends from the lumbar region in the lower back through the buttocks area, where nerve endings are sent down to the lower limbs. The pinched nerve is typically the result of a damaged, or herniated, disc in the spine and it can lead to sharp pains in the hips, thighs and lower legs. If you’re suffering from sciatica, you may also feel a numbness, or tingling sensation in the legs or feet.
Our chiropractor at Health First Family Chiropractic, Dr. David Johnson, routinely deals with patients who suffer from sciatica and he thoroughly understands how painful the condition can be. Through a series of gentle, yet effective adjustments, along with targeted physical exercises, Dr. Johnson can quickly alleviate your discomfort and help educate you on the best ways to prevent frequent recurrences of this type of injury.
Dr. Johnson uses corrective exercises that rely on the core belief that the body is very intuitive at healing itself, if pushed in the right direction. Even if left untreated, sciatica will eventually heal on its own, but not without a series of painful episodes that can sometimes be debilitating. Instead of painful non-action or painkillers, Dr. Johnson offers the highly-effective, fast-acting, all-natural benefits of chiropractic adjustments combined with healing physical therapy.
Chiropractic care is currently used by millions of people in the United States and worldwide. A 2015 Gallup Poll showed that more than 33 million Americans visited a chiropractor in 2014 and that two-thirds of the population think that chiropractic care is effective. Respondents also noted that they felt chiropractors have patients’ best interests at heart.
By many accounts, one of the most common reasons for the growing popularity of chiropractic care is that it is based on healing in a natural way, without the reliance on expensive medications or surgical interventions. Dr. Johnson and the entire staff at Health First Family Chiropractic share the belief that optimal health and wellness should start from within and be based on an integrative “whole-person” approach.
In addition to sciatica, Health First Family Chiropractic treats many other painful conditions that may be caused by injuries or chronic illnesses. If you’re experiencing back pain, neck pain, migraines, carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, foot pain or sore muscles and joints, chances are that we can help.
The best way for us to determine how we can alleviate your discomfort is for you to come in and see us. We’re happy to set up an appointment for a no obligation consultation so we give you more information on how we work and let you experience an initial adjustment. Our goal is to help as many people as we can to experience the joy and benefits of healing and wellness the all-natural way.
