Does Chiropractic Help with Sciatica?

Chiropractic is highly effective for treating sciatica.  Sciatica is an impingement of the sciatic nerve, which causes pain most often in the back of the leg and can make it all the way down to the foot.  It is commonly caused by misalignment of the lower back vertebrae and can also be cause by an issue with the discs in the lower back.  At The Fix, we take pressure off the nerve by adjusting the misaligned vertebra, which will relax the muscles in the area that are compressing the nerve.  We then stretch the associated muscles, which will further relax the area and remove more pressure off the sciatic nerve.   Over time, with specific adjustments and stretches, the symptoms will resolve.
