Sciatica is a very specific type of low back pain with radiating pain down into the leg. It refers to an irritation of either your right or left sciatic nerves, which depart the spine at the low back and send messages to and from the legs and feet.
Chiropractors have a long history of helping patients with sciatic symptoms. Many patients who have found no relief elsewhere benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractors provide effective care with a minimum of complications. Chiropractors have been shown to aid their patients' coping abilities and provide better outcomes. Dr. Johnson will investigate the cause of your sciatica, back pain, hip pain, and leg pain. Different causes require different types of treatment.
Dr. Johnson is proficient in delivering gentle Activator adjustments with no twisting or bending that might aggravate your low back. The Activator adjustment has been shown to be highly effective for low back pain.
We also offer state-of-the-art spinal decompression therapy, the standard for conservative and non-invasive treatment of disc problems. We also offer other therapies designed to complement the Activator adjustment: ultrasound therapy, electric stimulation of the muscles, cold laser therapy, exercises to be performed in the comfort of your own home, soft tissue work, and rehabilitation therapies.
