Sciatica and Chiropractic

Sciatica and Chiropractic

Sciatica and Chiropractic go hand in hand with each other. Sciatica is the most common condition that brings people into my office here in Chicago.

If you are suffering from sciatica, or know someone who is, then you know how debilitating and crippling it can be. We have amazing success with sciatica, it responds really well to what we do here in my office.

What I want to talk about is the amount of time people suffer with sciatica before they finally decide to seek treatment. ┬áMany times when people first come in to my office with sciatica I will ask them “How long have you had this?” The answers are always 5 years, 10 years, or forever! It varies, but it is always a REALLY LONG TIME! Why are you waiting so long? I get it. Most people think it will go away on its own, but if you’ve had it for YEARS, guess what? It’s time to get some help!

I challenge you, if you have sciatica, come to our office in Sauganash or go see your local Chiropractor if you are not in Chicago. We have had amazing success with Sciatica and you no longer have to suffer. We can help you get back to the things you want to enjoy in life. More exercise, more movement, sitting, sleeping and all types of everyday activities can be normal again!

Yours in Health,

Driving and Butt Pain

Driving and Butt Pain

One of the most common reasons people come to see me at my office in Chicago is because they spend a lot of time in the car and they start experiencing pain. These patients often ask me, “Driving and butt pain, can this be happening to me?” The answer is yes. The positioning of the seat in your car may be largely responsible for why you are having the butt pain. Oftentimes it can become even more than just butt pain, it can turn into sciatica.

Sciatica is a pain in the butt that also travels down the leg, sometimes as far down as the toes. It can be a sharp pain, a dull ache, or sometimes even numbness, tingling or burning. If you have ever suffered from sciatica you know just how debilitating it can be!

Sciatica has ended many careers of truck drivers or others who spend a lot of time in cars. This includes you police officers!

Watch the video below for a quick tip on how to position your car seat better. Most importantly, get checked by a chiropractor. We are specialists when it comes to helping those suffering with sciatica. Pelvic misalignments, tight hips, lower back subluxations and muscle imbalances can all contribute to the pain you are experiencing. It is critical to have these issues corrected, not only so you feel better, but so we fix the underlying problem and your sciatica doesn’t become chronic and a long-term issue.

The only thing worse than a pain in the butt, is a long-term, chronic pain in the butt.
