Sciatica is characterized by pain in the lower back that radiates down one or both legs. The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, like “pins and needles” or similar to electric shocks. Other symptoms associated with sciatica include burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatic nerve pain varies in intensity from mild to severe, and frequency may range from occasional to constant. The onset is generally gradual and not necessarily associated with a previous event.
Sciatica is also known as radiating or referred pain, neuropathy, or neuralgia.
The best care for sciatic pain is to schedule regular chiropractic appointments. This allows us to better detect and correct any spinal dysfunction that may be a source of the sciatic pain. Call our office today at INSERT PHONE NUMBER to start living a pain-free life.
Neuropathy is a medical condition caused by damaged nerve cells and often associated with autoimmune diseases, infections, diabetes, tumors, or hereditary conditions. Peripheral neuropathy currently affects over 20 million people in the United States with symptoms ranging from tingling or burning pain and nausea to muscle spasms, difficulty moving your arms or legs, or atrophy.
While neuropathy can be severe, the most common forms of neuropathy include diabetic neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica which are actually quite prevalent in adult populations. The symptoms of neuropathy greatly depend on the type of nerves that are damaged, ranging from autonomic nerves, motor nerves, and sensory nerves.
Autonomic nerves control involuntary and semi-voluntary bodily functions such as bladder functions, blood pressure, heart rate, and perspiration. When autonomic nerves are affected by peripheral neuropathy, symptoms include:
- Excessive sweating
- Loss of bladder or bowel functions
- Irregular heartbeat
- Nausea or vomiting
Spinal stenosis causes the small nerve passageways in the vertebrae to narrow, compressing and trapping nerve roots. Stenosis may cause neck, shoulder, and arm pain, as well as numbness, when these nerves are unable to function normally.
Lower Back Pain
Since back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide, it is vital to know how to prevent the cause of back pain. By maintaining a healthy diet and weight, remaining active and avoiding prolonged inactivity or bed rest are all important ways to avoid back pain. Before doing exercises or any physical activity, it is recommended to warm up and/or stretch.
Another lifestyle to avoid is smoking which impairs blood flow resulting in oxygen and nutrient deprivation to spinal tissues. By working with your doctor or chiropractor is the best way to ensure your working space is ergonomically correct. While nothing is fool-proof, these are helpful ways to prevent yourself from becoming the next statistic.
Knee pain is increasingly becoming a more common problem in society. It is a complaint we see frequently. The most common complaint associated with knee pain is considered the normal “wear and tear.” Another ailment that affects the knee is osteoarthritis. The symptoms and progression of osteoarthritis and knee pain can be reduced through our individualized approach to chiropractic care.
Some things to consider when suffering from knee pain:
- Is it limiting your day-to-day or sporting activities?
- Have you tried painkillers and been told to rest with no long-term improvement?
- Have you been told you have arthritis and there is nothing that can be done?
The shoulder is a complex region of the body made up of bones, tendons, ligaments and muscles that connect the arm to the torso. The shoulder has two joints that work together to allow arm movement. Due to the region’s complexity, there are all sorts of things that can go wrong in this area.
At your first visit, we will take a detailed patient history to better understand your shoulder pain and how it started. The evaluation will be followed by a physical examination. During your physical exam we will determine whether or not X-rays are necessary.
Shoulder pain and injuries are often associated with lack of thoracic spine (middle segment of the back) mobility. With this type of shoulder injury, it responds well to joint manipulation/adjustment. We can treat these symptoms in a manner tailored to your treatment plan.
