Find Sciatica Relief at Active Life Chiropractic
Sciatica is an all-too-common pain that radiates along the large sciatic nerve – a nerve that starts in your lower back and extends down through your hips, buttocks and down each leg.
Symptoms of a pinched sciatic nerve include discomfort anywhere along the nerve’s path, numbness/tingling/muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot.
No matter what’s causing your sciatica and where the pain is occurring, the experts at Active Life Chiropractic can provide fast, beneficial sciatica relief.
Here is a Summary of Our Process:
Our approach of alleviating sciatica focuses on treating the source of the pain. Unlike medications, injections, therapies and surgeries that often provide temporary relief, many of our patients see long lasting results by eliminating the pain’s source.
The most common treatments include balancing the spine, nervous system and surrounding musculature. Dr. Bob Mason will conduct a consultation and determine if your problem is within his scope of practice. From there he will conduct an exam that includes orthopedic, neurologic tests and diagnostic tests (such as spinal x-rays).
Following the exam, Dr. Bob will discuss his diagnosis as well as recommendations. Recommendations include how much relief you should expect, what types of treatments are needed, at home instructions, how long it will take to see improvements and the cost of care.
At Active Life Chiropractic we accept all major health insurances as well as offer different options for those who are underinsured or have high copays or deductibles.
Because his treatments are unique for each patient, Dr. Bob can often identify contributing factors that come from a person’s lifestyle. For example, many of his patients see a huge difference by changing the setup of their desk at work, stopping or adding certain exercises during workouts or finding their proper sleeping position.
Sciatic nerve pain is one of the most life affecting problems we see at Active Life Chiropractic. Our main goal is to improve our patient’s quality of life as quickly as possible.
