Do you experience:
numbness or tingling in your buttocks, leg, foot or toes?
lower back or hip pain that goes down your leg?
weakness or instability in your lower back or leg?
tight hamstring or calf muscles?
Your sciatic nerve is a large nerve that’s made up of nerve fibres that runs from the vertebrae in your lower back, through the buttocks and down your leg to your foot. It is generally characterised by pain and/or pins and needles down the back of your leg to your foot. There are many causes of sciatica of which some of the most effective treatment involves a combination of working with the spine and exercising the low back and legs.
In other parts of the body, such as the arms and hands, nerve pain can be traced back to the spine. Almost every single nerve in your body finds its way through the spine to your brain. That’s why it’s important to have a Chiropractor assess your spine if you’re experiencing sciatica or other nerve symptoms.
Our thorough assessment procedures aim to identify the exact cause of your sciatica or nerve pain and identify whether Chiropractic care is appropriate for you. We utilise on-site digital x-rays (if clinically appropriate) and digital postural assessments, allowing us to immediately look deeper and understand your problem. The information we gather on our initial assessment allows us to choose the most effective technique, tailor this to your needs, ensuring we are being incredibly safe all while delivering exceptional results.
