Sciatica

Schumacher Chiropractic successfully treats Sciatica, reduces back and leg pain.

The sciatic nerves are the largest and longest nerves in the body. At its largest point, near the area of the buttocks, the sciatic nerve's size is about the diameter of an adult's thumb. The nerve continues all the way down the leg into the foot. It is made up from the nerve roots that branch off each side of the spine in the lower back. The most common cause of sciatic pain is lumbar spine misalignments and accompanying disc bulges or herniations. This vertebral subluxation complex can irritate, twist, stretch or pinch these nerve roots as they exit the spine, causing all variations of leg and foot pain or numbness.

Subluxations can be caused by all sorts of things including poor posture, car accidents, work injuries, heavy lifting, slips, falls and your normal daily routine. Subluxations are best treated by chiropractors. Research indicates that sciatica responds better with chiropractic care than it does to conventional therapy or standard medical care.

This is one of the conditions that Schumacher Chiropractic Clinics have the most success with. Our treatment approach includes manipulation, acupuncture, electrical muscle stimulation, and a new form of non-surgical treatment called spinal decompression therapy. This treatment protocol can dramatically reduce or potentially eliminate your back and leg pain.
