Pills, Potions or lotions can’t correct the nerve interference caused by a spinal subluxation.

SCIATICA STRIKES!

The white hot pain of sciatica is sometimes almost unbearable and the hapless victim suffers agonies. Sciatic  pain  is  sharp  and tearing,  searing  a  path  down  the  thigh,  leg, foot  and  to  the toes.  Although fairly constant, the pain sometimes lets up for an hour …  or a day.  It may be mild one minute and then will rage out of control the next, never allowing peace of mind. Patients suffering this terrible pain never know when it will subside and when it will get worse and the suspense is part of the suffering.  Chiropractic has helped millions of sciatica patients!

WHAT IT IS

Sciatica is a painful inflammation of the sciatic nerve which supplies the tissue of the thigh, lower  leg and foot usually caused by the pinching of one or more spinal nerves  between the spinal bones of  the  lower back.  This is called a spinal subluxation.

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE SCIATIC NERVE

Sciatic sufferers say it’s like having a excruciating “toothache” in the leg.

The sciatic nerve is the largest one in the body. That the sciatic nerve remains healthy is vital because it is the main communication line between the brain and the lower extremities. Even though normal life is impossible because the person literally cannot find a comfortable position and is in constant and unrelenting pain, the patient may be perfectly healthy otherwise. WORD TO THE WISE As with any ailment, the sooner it is corrected, the better. If you tell yourself you “don’t have the time” or “don’t want to be bothered,” your mild discomfort may turn to violent pain and more prolonged and complicated care may be required.

Rarely do misaligned spinal vertebrae correct themselves. Through the skill, training and experience of a Dr. Miller, your condition usually can be corrected.  He locates the misaligned vertebrae and adjusts and aligns them to relieve the nerve pressure. This he does without drugs so that you can be sure he is relieving the underlying cause and not just the symptoms.

Fortunately, improving spinal function in the lower back with specific chiropractic adjustments has produced results for many people.

It all starts with a consultation and thorough examination with Dr. Miller.  Contact us today.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How do you get sciatica?
    It’s easy to trace some spinal problems to an event, such as a car accident. Yet, sciatica is often the result of cumulative damage. Years of bad posture, poor muscle tone, excess weight or countless other causes sets the stage. Then, something simple like bending over to tie your shoes can trigger an episode. Spinal decay can be another culprit. Instead of disc thinning that puts pressure on the sciatic nerve roots, arthritic bone spurs can intrude into the space normally reserved for the nerve.
  • Can chiropractic cure sciatica?
    Actually, chiropractic doesn’t cure anything! Only your body can do that. The chiropractic approach to sciatica (and other health problems) is to help restore the way your spine works, reducing nerve irritation and revitalizing your own healing ability.
  • How much chiropractic care will be needed?
    Most sciatica patients are delighted with the results they get after weeks or months of care. Naturally, this varies from patient to patient. After a relapse or two, many discover that years of neglect have produced spinal instabilities that never fully heal. These patients elect to continue with periodic chiropractic checkups. It’s up to you.
  • What if I don’t remember any ‘trauma’?
    This is a common refrain. Because our bodies are unusually adaptive, we can often accommodate a variety of stresses for years. Finally, like the “straw that broke the camel’s back,” we turn or bend funny and suddenly our spine succumbs to the accumulation of stress.
