Are you suffering from Sciatica? Chiropractic can help!
Sciatica can be caused by many different issues. It can be arthritic changes in the spine, a herniated disc, muscle imbalances around the hip, or muscle tightness. It is important to discover what is causing your sciatica and address that issue. That is our approach here at Bourdage Chiropractic.
Sciatica is characterized by pain in the back. This is accompanied by pain, numbness, tingling, or burning that travels down the leg and may even be felt into the feet and toes. The further down your leg it travels, the more severe your case is. It is important to have this checked out and do not wait for the symptoms to get better on their own. The longer you wait, the greater chance your sciatica may become chronic in nature.
Sciatica is the most common condition I treat at Bourdage Chiropractic. We have good success in helping people heal from this oftentimes awful condition.

Let’s be honest, there are more like 100 reasons, but for the sake of time here are the top 10 reasons you need a chiropractor in your life RIGHT NOW!
Your nervous system controls everything that happens in your body. Spinal stress = Nervous system stress.
Posture improvement. We sit more than ever and it is evident by people’s posture. We look more like hunched over apes then we do erect, strong humans. Chiropractors help with this.
Stress relief. Have you ever noticed that when you get stressed your body becomes very tense and tight? Chiropractic to the rescue.
Headache relief. Due to poor posture and stress people are having more headaches than ever. Subluxations in the neck irritate the nerves causing your headaches. Chiropractors adjust and remove subluxations.
Prevention of health issues. I help my patients to identify their negative health habits and create new positive habits which helps them to stay healthier for longer.
Energy. Are you feeling fatigued and sluggish? A proper, specific adjustment can wake you up faster than a shot of espresso!
Improved athletic performance. There is a reason most all professional sports teams have a chiropractor on staff. Here’s a secret, it’s not to help with injuries, it’s to improve the performance of the athletes.
Avoid surgery. If your first point of contact for a pain condition is a Chiropractor, your chance of having a surgery is much less than compared to if you see a medical doctor first.
Age gracefully. Healthier people age better than unhealthy people. Seeing a chiropractor regularly and being proactive towards your health instead of reactive will help you to maintain your health and wellness.
You have a spine! Like any other possession you have, if you do not take care of it, it will decay and fail. Do you take care of your teeth? Do you take care of your car? Your house? Hopefully the answer to these questions is YES! If you don’t take care of your teeth, car or house you can always replace them. Don’t take care of your spine there is no replacement option…you only get one!!

Something I hear very often in my office from patients is the statement, “I’m getting old.” When people say this it is in relation to the fact that are injured or having pain and it either came out of nowhere or it started after a very simple movement or activity. When people tell me they are getting old, I call them out on it. “You may be getting older, but you are not getting old” is typically my response. Continue reading →
Elbow pain relief has become a very common reason people are seeking Chiropractic care. In my office, most cases of elbow pain are directly related to cell phone and tablet usage. The position our hand, wrist and elbow are in while using these devices creates problems. Continue reading →
I’d like to share with you a story about a particular patient from my office that has a lot to offer and may help you too. This particular patient, let’s call him Bob, came in with an acute lower back disc injury. He was in bad shape, intense lower back pain that traveled into his leg. He was finding it difficult to do basic activities for everyday living. Simple things like getting dressed, tying his own shoes, getting up after sitting, using the toilet, and sleeping at night. To say his life was being affected by this injury is an understatement. Bob was starting to think this was going to do him in. Bob is in his mid to late twenties.
