Chronic Pain Management
Chiropractic. It’s about restoring function and total health to your nervous system which coordinates every bodily function. There are many forms of lower back pain including sciatica.

Sciatica nerve pain is more common than it should be and can take a relatively long time to heal.

From the base of the spine the sciatica branches into each leg and down the back of the thigh and calf into the foot. Some causes of sciatica are:

Spinal adjustments and manipulation, when performed by trained chiropractic professionals are centered on improving spinal column alignment, which is how we address many underlying conditions of the nervous system that can cause sciatic nerve pain.
