If you have pain that begins in your lower back and it radiates down one or both legs, you could be suffering from sciatica. As the longest nerve in the body, the sciatic nerve can become compressed and irritated and cause a significant amount of pain. Fortunately, Dr. Browner and his highly trained staff have extensive experience in treating the many causes of sciatic pain and they can develop a treatment plan for you.
In many instances, sciatica is caused by a bulging or herniated disc in the lumbar region of the back. When a disc is bulging or herniated, pressure can be put on the sciatic nerve and pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling will be experienced down one or both legs. However, there are other causes of sciatica, such as trauma from a fall or accident, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease. When you first visit with Dr. Browner regarding your sciatic pain, he will thoroughly evaluate your condition in order to determine the exact cause of your sciatic pain and to develop a course of treatment uniquely designed to treat your unique symptoms and circumstances.
Whether you are suffering from a sharp, shooting pain running down your legs, a burning sensation on one side of your lower back and down one leg, or difficultly and/or pain when trying to stand up, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Browner so that he can ascertain whether or not you have an irritated sciatic nerve and then develop a treatment plan so that you can be pain-free as soon as possible. Even if other doctors have said that surgery is the only option, Dr. Browner can bring you relief through non-invasive, totally safe methods that will amaze you. By relieving pressure on the affected nerve with chiropractic manipulations in conjunction with various therapies, Dr. Browner can enable your body’s own healing mechanisms to go to work. Part of a successful treatment plan may include any combination of the following:
