Doctors say that sciatica is one of the most common things they encounter in Salt Lake City. So many people who deal with this pain never get to a long-term solution. The pain and symptoms get worse, and it goes from occasional to constant. The pain can be in different areas of the leg and foot.
Sciatic issues can start to form from the pelvic and lumbar spine. This area of the spine is very complicated and makes locating the issue challenging and time consuming. Our Chiropractor holds the knowledge and skills to help improve the position of the spine and discs.
Sometimes all it takes is one simple event to ignite the pain that has been getting worse over years. For example you could just bend over to pick up your bag or tie a shoe, and next thing you know that sharp pain has started.
Sciatica treatment is dependent upon the severity of the condition. Some respond quickly while others take longer to recover. It depends on how much work is needed to correct the discs or joints.
Many people end up getting back surgery, and unfortunately the success rate is no guarantee. Back surgery is not good enough for you, but chiropractic care is. If you are dealing with Sciatica or have any further questions, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
