Back Pain & Sciatica

Each and every year, research in our country anoints back pain as the most common cause of disability.  If you have never looked to chiropractic care for a solution to your back pain, you are missing out on the most effective drugless, non-surgical treatment available…proven, again, by extensive research.  When appropriate, chiropractic adjustments to the spinal column  ease pain, enhance joint motion, improve your posture, and normalize nervous system function. Our office is passionate about chiropractic care for this and for the many other benefits many of our patients experience under treatment.

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica is caused by irritation and/or compression of the largest nerve in your body. It can have many origins: a herniated disc in the low back, an arthritic bone spur, or a condition called spinal stenosis that causes narrowing of the passages in the spine. Dependent upon how chronic and severe, sciatic pain can worsen and cause tingling, numbness, and even weakness in the legs .  To solve a sciatic condition, proper diagnosis and treatment of its origin is paramount.  Unfortunately, procrastinating the treatment of sciatica can result in the need for surgery.  Chiropractic adjustments can be extremely beneficial in relieving lower back pain and pain associated with sciatica. AWAKEN treats this condition with great results.
