At Patrick Chiropractic, Dr. Patrick often sees patients suffering from sciatica.  Sciatica is a condition that can result in tremendous suffering and disability. The good news is that you don't have to suffer, because chiropractic care can provide natural recovery from sciatica pain.
The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in your body, and runs from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this important nerve travels through so many narrow openings, it's susceptible to being irritated or pinched. Sometimes sciatic pain originates in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; sometimes the nerve can be irritated from the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.

One of the first things Dr. Patrick will do is perform a careful examination that will help pinpoint the actual root cause of your pain. This might not even be where you're feeling symptoms, as the nerve can be compressed much higher up in your body than where you're feeling the pain, tingling or numbness.

Once we've determined the origin of your symptoms, we'll be able to start working restoring the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or compression on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.

Our office is conveniently located on Falls of Neuse Road in Raleigh and we are currently accepting new patients. Give our office a call today at (919) 790-2288 and we'll get you scheduled as soon as possible so you can be on your way to finding relief from your pain.
