We've seen a lot of people in our Middleburg Heights, OH office who are stressed from sciatica, and it's a problem that can result in tremendous discomfort and disability. The good news is that you don't have to suffer, because chiropractic care is a fantastic way to get you out of pain.
The sciatic nerve is one of the major nerves in your body, and extends from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this significant nerve extends through so many compact openings, it's vulnerable to being irritated or pinched.
In some cases sciatic pain starts in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; from time to time the nerve can be irritated from the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.
One of the first things Dr. Baker will do is conduct a careful examination that will help point to the actual root cause of your pain. This might not even be precisely where you're feeling discomfort, as the nerve can be pinched much higher up in your body than where you're sensing the pins and needles or numbness.
Once we've established the origin of your ailments, we'll be able to start working towards recovering the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or tightness on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.
