Sciatica

­

Sciatica, or sciatic neuritis, is a distracting pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve - beginning in the lower back and extending down one or both legs.

Symptoms of sciatica may include lower back pain, buttock pain, numbness or weakness in various parts of the leg and foot, and a shooting pain making it difficult to walk or stand up. The level of pain varies from person to person – from infrequent and irritating to quite severe and debilitating. Simple movements such as coughing or sneezing lead to excruciating pain for some people dealing with sciatica.

Why Does Sciatic Pain Occur?

Sciatica symptoms occur when the large sciatic nerve is irritated. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, made up of isolated nerve roots that branch out from the spine in the lower back. When the nerve becomes pinched (by a herniated disc or overgrowth of bone) on your vertebrae, sciatica is likely to occur.

How Chiropractic Can Help Relieve Sciatica

Chiropractic adjustments are known to provide ready relief. A visit to the chiropractor can also help assess the nature of sciatica, such as misaligned vertebrae or pelvis, and care for it accordingly – resolving the root of the problem.

Sciatica Success Stories

"I was very skeptical going in, as I really hadn't had any experience with a chiropractor. But I didn't want to go through a surgery on my back to correct the numbness in my right leg. My experience has been all positive. One must have patience and do exactly as told to make things work. I now feel almost 100% better and would recommend Dr. Steinle to anyone and feel good about it. The numbness is gone now. I just wasn't able to be active or walk or anything for more than 10-15 minutes. Now I can do most anything I want for as long as it takes. I feel great."

"I came to Health and Harmony Chiropractic and Wellness Center because I hurt my back. I had bent over to get something and everything changed drastically. I was in intense pain, very intense pain. I couldn’t stand up, I couldn’t move, and I couldn’t walk. I was down for three days. I started treatment and am now back to being active, riding, swimming, and just being with my kids playing. It really feels great to have my life back."

Christine Lafferty


"I was experiencing low back pain and sciatic leg pain. After evaluating my symptoms, performing an exam, and studying my x-rays, Dr. Steinle recommended a comprehensive and organized treatment program. I was given home exercises which worked together with the treatments. The program has provided relief and the ability to an excellent quality of life again. I have been pain free."

Sciatica Pain Relief at Health and Harmony Chiropractic and Wellness CenterSciatica Pain Relief at Health and Harmony Chiropractic and Wellness Center“Due to degenerative changes in my spine, I was having bad sciatic pain down my left leg and stabbing pain in my lower back. One morning upon getting out of bed, my legs buckled out from under me. I was hesitant to seek chiropractic help, as other sources were discouraging me from this modality. I had seen a neurosurgeon, who had recommended a nerve block in my lower lumbar vertebrae, with the possibility of surgery, if that did not relieve the pain. A good friend and neighbor recommended Dr. Steinle to me. I was willing to go to avoid surgery and having steroids injected into my spine. I am thankful that I pursued treatment with Dr. Steinle. He set up a treatment plan for me and after a few months, I am back to walking, hiking, working out at the gym, and feeling like myself again. Chiropractic works! I am so glad that I took this route. Health and Harmony Chiropractic is professional, caring, and health orientated. Jeannine always greets you with a smile, as well as Dr. Steinle. Thanks for helping me with my problem! I can now resume my break-dancing, too!”
