Sciatica

Are you experiencing pain in your low back and maybe down the back of your legs? If you are this could be a sign of sciatica. It is due to the irritation of the sciatic nerves, which is the largest nerves of the body. The pain will usually start in the low back and then radiate down the back of either or both legs. Sciatica can lead to numbness, tingling, burning, pain in the back of calf, weakness of the knee or foot, difficulty walking, and the inability to move the foot or bend the knee. If the vertebrae in the low back is misaligned or out of place, the result is pressure on the nearby nerves. This is where Chiropractic comes into play. Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned, out of place vertebrae and also can remove the pressure placed on the sciatic nerve. Which result in reducing pain and improving flexibility and function. If you feel that this a condition you may have please call Wirth Chiropractic at 252-756-6111 for your free consultation.
