Sciatica


Murfreesboro chiropractor MRISciatica (pronounced sy-at-ih-cuh) is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve is irritated, pinched, damaged or otherwise impaired. The sciatic nerve is actually a large bundle of nerves that branch off the spinal cord just above the base of the spine and proceed to the toes. Because the sciatic nerve originates from the lower end of the spinal cord, a misalignment, injury, sprain, degeneration or other condition that affects the spinal joints can cause sciatica. For example, if you slip, fall, strain or otherwise injure the lower back, the resulting dysfunction or misalignment of the lower back joints can cause sciatica.

Likewise, the sciatic nerve can become pinched by gradually increasing pressure from degenerative processes that affect the spine such as arthritis, stenosis, bone spurs, disc damage and other conditions.

Our exclusive advanced chiropractic care as well as our unique painless acupuncture have proven very successful for relieving sciatica for three decades.

The newest, most advanced non-surgical treatment available for sciatica resulting from spinal degeneration or herniated discs is our Spinal Disc Decompression. This special table targets the injured area and separates the vertebrae, taking pressure off the pinched sciatic nerve. The treatment itself is surprisingly comfortable and has proven to be highly effective, even on cases where surgery has been recommended.
