We know that sciatica can be an extremely painful condition. It occurs when there is a pinched nerve somewhere along the base of the spine. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, extending from the lower lumbar region of the back and running through the muscles of the buttocks. The nerve endings in this area spread out over the length of the leg, so when the sciatic nerve is compressed, the resulting pain may be felt in the hips, thighs, legs and feet. Sciatica is most likely a symptom of a slipped or herniated disc.
Our Chiropractor in Oxford, Dr. David Wade, is an experienced and highly skilled practitioner, who is certified in sports injuries, spinal trauma, and wellness coaching. He has treated many athletes over the years that have suffered from pinched nerves which result in sciatica. Dr. Wade can quickly examine, diagnose and treat your symptoms, helping to alleviate your pain and get you back on the road to a healthy spine.
Providing sciatica relief is simply one aspect of what we do at American Back Institute. Dr. Wade and our staff work hard to promote a “whole person” approach to health. We consider all of the factors in our patients’ life that may contribute in some way to their illnesses, injuries or overall health. We look at age, weight, lifestyle, fitness level and diet, as well as other factors that help us to customized plan for your recovery. Going beyond a “cookie-cutter” approach and doing our best to avoid surgical intervention or temporary medicinal remedies helps us to connect on a deeper level with our patients. Consequently, we can provide the most effective, comprehensive care that’s specific to each person and their particular issues.
We are passionate about not only treating, but educating our patients on how to maintain health and wellness in an all-natural, holistic way. Call us today to set up an appointment for a consultation so we can help you understand more about how chiropractic care can be an important element of you and your family’s health maintenance plan.
