Sciatica (leg pain)

The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the areas that a sciatic issue will start from. This area of the spine is very complicated, and it can be difficult to locate the problem. We will be able to work with you to zero in on the source. From there they will need to work with you to improve the position of the spine and discs.

Some patients say that all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper, and they were hit with extreme pain. They don’t understand how an easy task caused them so much pain? The reality is that their condition was probably developing over years of time, that piece of paper just happened to be the last straw. Most spinal problems don’t happen overnight, they build up over years of time.

How Long does it Take to Correct Sciatica?

Treatment length can vary significantly from patient to patient. Some people respond very quickly while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of the disc or the joints that the chiropractor has to correct. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took to create it.
