Almost half of the population will experience the shooting pain of sciatica at some point in their lives. But just because sciatica is common doesn’t mean that it’s normal.
If you suffer from sciatic pain, you know how disruptive it can be to your daily life.
Fortunately, you don’t have to simply “suffer through it.” Chiropractic care could be the answer you’re looking for.
Unlike traditional medicine, the goal of chiropractic treatment isn’t to mask your symptoms, but to treat the underlying condition. If a joint misalignment is to blame for your sciatica, taking a painkiller isn’t going to help in the long-term.
At Lakes Chiropractic & Wellness, we’ve helped many patients find relief from debilitating sciatica symptoms so they can get back to their everyday, pain-free life.
Your first appointment will start with a full examination to determine the root cause of your pain, using our in-office X-ray if required.
We will then develop a treatment plan catered to your specific anatomy, designed to relieve pressure on the nerve.
Chiropractic care is holistic in nature, which means it focuses on your body as whole. By restoring your joints to their natural state, your body can heal itself naturally, allowing you to live symptom-free
Whether your sciatica is caused by a pregnancy, car accident, or sports injury, you can count on our expert care to get you back to your daily routine.
