The pain caused by Sciatic nerve compression and irritation can be debilitating and frustrating, especially when pain relief medications prove to be ineffective. When the Sciatic nerve is compressed or irritated, you may feel pain in your buttock, down the back of your thigh and leg, as well as down the front of your leg and to your toes, making it difficult to perform even normal daily activities. Shooting, stabbing pain, radiating down your leg, may make it difficult to stand up straight, difficult to walk, difficult to play sports, or difficult to transition from sitting to standing, and back again. We, here at Woodinville Chiropractic, understand your need to obtain immediate relief from your Sciatic nerve pain, and return to a fully functional life. Obtaining a professional evaluation by Dr Myron Gudmundson or Dr Sara Hamill is an important first step in achieving relief from your Sciatic pain.
Sciatica is most commonly caused by disc herniations, stenosis, Piriformis syndrome, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, and vertebral subluxations, The Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body, but starts with nerve roots branching off of the spinal cord in the region of the low back and sacrum, then combining together to form a broad, flat nerve that branches and innervates much of the leg and foot. The Sciatic nerve can be compressed or irritated anywhere along its path, resulting in the sharp pain, commonly referred to as Sciatica. Woodinville Chiropractic's method of carefully checking the whole spine allows Dr Myron Gudmundson and Dr Sara Hamill to determine the most effective ways to adjust the individual bones of the spine, of the extremities, and the most effective way to apply manual therapy to individual muscles, to facilitate the fastest relief of your Sciatic nerve pain.
