Agony of Sciatica Relieved by Chiropractic

Having back and leg pain can bring life to a stand still.

Having back and leg pain can bring life to a stand still.

When we stop to think about it, the job that our legs perform is a tremendous one. They must support our body and move a weight from place to place. Is it any wonder, when we think of the tasks they perform, that the legs fall victim to one of humanity’s most painful conditions? Inflammation of the sciatic nerve, which is the primary nerve supply to the leg, can be devastatingly painful.

The sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, begins in the lower spine and runs down the back of the thigh to the knee where it divides and continues downward as two nerves, one in front and one in the back of the leg. The sciatic nerve is about the size of your thumb, and when it becomes inflamed, the pain can become unbearable. Most everyone is familiar with the pain of an exposed nerve in a tooth.

Well, that nerve is too small to be seen with the naked eye. Now imagine how great the pain would be if that nerve were the size of your thumb. When there is a misalignment (subluxation) in the spine, the possibility of sciatic neuritis is present. Impingement of spinal nerves with the resulting interference in the normal flow of nerve impulses is one of the leading causes of sciatica.

Chiropractic is the most effective method for treating the vast majority of cases of sciatic pain. Once Dr. Miller locates the nerve impingement, he can correct the misalignment, thereby restoring the normal flow of nerve impulses. Once the interference (blockage) has been corrected, the body repairs the inflammatory condition of the nerves, and recovery from the sciatica is imminent.

At the first sign of sciatica, see your chiropractor. Chances are an examination of your spine will re­-veal the cause of your trouble and save you many hours of needless suffering and disability.
