Sciatica

Sciatica is irritation of the sciatic nerve as it travels through its pathway. The path begins in the spine, travels thru the buttocks, down the back of the thigh, and technically ends where it splits into 2 other nerves (the tibial and peroneal) which go all the way down to the foot.

We work on identifying where the nerve is becoming irritated and on eliminating the source of irritation (i.e. is it a vertebrae out of alignment, is it compression of the spine due to poor posture or prolonged sitting, is it weak core muscles causing excessive pressures on the areas adjacent to the nerve?) We can use hands-on techniques, exercises, taping, education on how to care for yourself, and modalities (like laser or electrical stimulation) to decrease the nerve inflammation, relieve your pain, and restore your function.
