Sciatica Chiropractor in the Bay Area
Sciatica is a problem caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve coming from the low back vertebra or pelvic area. Symptoms include burning pain, pins and needles sensation and numbness radiating down to buttock, thigh and leg. This nerve roots that make form the sciatic nerve also controls the digestive organs like the bowels, intestines as well as the bladder and reproductive organs. Often people experiencing sciatica also experience back pain, leg weakness, constipation or diarrhea, flatulence, PMS, abdominal cramping and bladder dysfunction. At chiropractic Wellness Center, we are able to accurately assess sciatica to find the underlying cause of the problem and provide corrective care, rather than just masking the pain with addictive pain medication.

How Does Sciatica Occur?
There are many different reasons why sciatica can affect a person. A few possible causes and symptoms of this are:
- Compression of the nerves or problems with the spine.
- Muscle and joint strains.
- Tingling or cramping on one side of the leg or buttocks.
- Weakness or numbness in the leg.
- Acute pain while sitting.
- Sharp discomfort while standing up.
- Spasm that moves along the length of the leg into the foot.
What Is the Procedure for Treating Sciatica?
Sciatica can be treated with the surgery, but risk is high, and the long-term success rate is low. Medications may provide temporary pain relief but have side effects and do not address the root cause of the problem. At Chiropractic Wellness Center our approach is to diagnosis the root cause of the problem. Then use proven methods to adjust the vertebra or pelvis to remove the nerve interference. Addressing the underlying structural cause of sciatica provides safe, long-term results.
Chiropractic Care Effective in Sciatica
Chiropractic care, a holistic healing approach, uses non-invasive procedures to help solve the underlying cause of sciatica. The chiropractic procedure involves manual adjustments that take pressure directly off the sciatic nerve.
