Sciatica in Willoughby, OH

Sciatica cannot only be painful but also debilitating. French Chiropractic and Wellness Center in Madison offers solutions to the residents of Willoughby suffering from sciatica.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is the condition where pain emerges from the lower back and the buttocks area and may also affect at least one of the legs. It results from a disturbance in the sciatic nerve. It starts at one particular point on the lower back and travels to the rest of the parts especially the legs.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatica results from irritation on lower sections of the lumbar. The other known causes are:

  • Breakdown of the disc of cushions between two vertebrae
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis or the spinal cord thinning in the lower back
  • Pregnancy
  • Spondylolisthesis or slippage of a single vertebra above the other

Other causes that may increase the pain is if one is suffering from obesity, not exercising, wearing high heels, etc. Chiropractic care works magic by eradicating the pain of the sciatic nerve. It will ensure increased efficiency and flexibility as it corrects the vertebrae that are out of place.

What are the symptoms of Sciatica?

  • Decreased knee mobility
  • Unable to move feet
  • Back pain on the calf
  • Discomfort on rear calf or sole of the foot
  • General weakness of the foot or knee
  • Tingling and numbness

What is the Treatment for Sciatica?

There are usually two methods that are used by French Chiropractic and Wellness Center to ease sciatica pain. Spinal decompression including flexion/distraction chiropractic tables are used as well as well as a spinal decompression table delivering FDA-approved spinal decompression therapy. You can also get manual adjustment treatments by hand.
