We've seen a lot of patients in our Cheektowaga, NY office who are stressed from sciatica, and it's an ailment that can result in an extreme amount of 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 most significant nerves in your body, and goes from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this significant nerve flows through so many compact spaces, it's vulnerable to being irritated or pinched.
Sometimes sciatic pain stems in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; now and then the nerve can be irritated from the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.
One of the first things Dr. Palmer will do is conduct a careful examination that will help locate the actual root cause of your problems. This might not even be precisely where you're feeling symptoms, as the nerve can be compressed much higher up in your body than where you're feeling the pain or numbness.
Once we've identified the cause of your symptoms, we'll be able to start working restoring the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or squeezing on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.
Our office is conveniently located in Cheektowaga, NY and we are currently accepting new patients. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225 and we'll get you scheduled as soon as possible.
