If you are experiencing pain that radiates from the back or buttocks all the way down the legs, you may have a common condition called sciatica, which is caused by compression of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the body. When the vertebrae in the lower back are compressed, the roots of the sciatic nerve can become pinched and irritated. Postural issues, pregnancy, and trauma can lead to spinal misalignments and disc injuries that result in sciatica. An untreated sciatic condition can continue to worsen and make the daily tasks of living go from difficult to impossible. If left unchecked, sciatic pain will generally grow worse and the nerve can become permanently injured. Our team has been treating this condition for many years. After a thorough assessment of the individual’s unique issue, gentle adjustments are made that will allow the body to recover its natural alignment.
