What is Sciatica?

Dr, Brian Briggs Offers Help For Sciatica

The sciatic nerve extends from the lower spine through the pelvis and down the backs of the legs. This nerve can become inflamed due to a variety of causes, a condition known as “sciatica,” and can cause a number of uncomfortable symptoms. Chiropractic care offers a non-invasive, drug-free method of reducing sciatica problems. Dr. Brian Briggs offers chiropractic techniques to treat the symptoms of sciatica.

Symptoms of Sciatica

Sciatica symptoms can vary from one person to another. Some individuals may experience severe back or leg pain, while others may have milder symptoms. You may feel pain on only one side of the body, or on both sides. The pain may originate in the lower spine and travel down the backs of the legs. You may have “pins and needles” in the legs or feet. Some individuals experience significant numbness or weakness in the legs.

Chiropractic Techniques Can Help Sciatica Symptoms

Your Huber Heights chiropractor will take a full medical history and will examine you to determine the location and severity of the discomfort. Manual adjustment may be performed to re-align the structures of the spine to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. Corrective exercises can help to strengthen supporting muscles to improve nerve function. Your chiropractor will design a care plan for your unique needs.
