Intense Leg Pain Intense leg pain…. numbness…. tingling, burning or pain radiating through your lower back. Any or all these symptoms are frequently associated with nerve impingement. While all leg pain is not sciatic in nature, the extent of nerve impingement will be determined by Dr. Cady.
Simply defined, sciatica is an extremely painful condition involving your sciatica nerve. The sciatic is the largest and longest nerve in the human body which extends along the back of the leg from the buttocks to the inside of the ankle. When the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed or traumatized in any way, the result is agonizing, distressing and often temporarily debilitating. People often mistakenly refer to this condition as a “slipped disc.”
If you are experiencing these symptoms, you may feel discouraged or afraid. You may be thinking that this type of pain and physical incapacity must mean facing the risks and consequences of surgery or drugs. You may even fear that nothing will help.
However, studies have suggested chiropractic care to be helpful in the relief of the symptoms of nerve impingement. Dr. Cady is ready to work with you to alleviate your discomfort and restore you to better health as quickly as possible.
By designing a treatment program especially for you, Dr. Cady may be able to help you on your way to feeling better naturally without resorting to other drastic, costly and often no more effective measures.
