Sciatic nerve pain is different type than any Chiropractor or Physical Therapist see on a normal basis. It’s a much more involved type of situation. Basically the anatomy of the situation is that the nerves come out of the low back. They combine and they combine with the sciatic nerve, goes all the way down the back of the leg, all the way down into the foot. Those nerves basically innervate certain areas of the skin and go to certain muscles. Here we would want to check first off to make sure it’s true sciatic pain. We’d run you through basic orthopedic testing, neurological testing as well. That way we could determine that it is truly sciatic pain.
Here at our center we have two different types of modalities that we would really focus on just the sciatic pain. Sure you could do basic physical therapy and general chiropractic adjusting. Will that help? Absolutely. But in some cases they need a little bit more in depth type of treatment. Here we have what’s called a deflection retraction table, basically what it’s going to do it’s going to open up, stretch out and basically decompress that low back. In addition, we also have a true decompression table which will really facilitate and we can target every individual disk in the low back. That way we can really handle any type of sciatic pain that could be caused by any impingement upon any nerve.
