How Chiropractic can Manage Sciatica in Omaha, NE

The sciatic nerve is one of the most extensive nerves in your body, and extends from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this significant nerve extends through so many tight openings, it's vulnerable to being aggravated or pinched.

Sometimes sciatic pain develops in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; from time to time the nerve can be irritated by the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.

One of the first things we will do is perform a careful examination that will help locate the actual root cause of your discomfort. This might not even be precisely where you're feeling discomfort, as the nerve can be squeezed much higher up in your body than where you're feeling the pain or numbness.

Once we've ascertained the root of your problems, we'll be able to start working rebuilding the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or squeezing on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.
