Sciatica Symptoms- What’s this pain running down my leg?

Causes, Symptoms, Diagnosis and Treatment

sciaticaSciatica occurs when nerve compression is caused by a bulging disc. . .Pills or muscle relaxers can’t correct only provide temporary relief.

Sciatica is a distracting pain that begins in the lower back and extends down one or both legs. It typically worsens with periods of sitting or standing. The discs between the spinal bones of the lower back are often involved.

Trauma can cause one or more discs to bulge. This crowds nearby nerves, causing irritation and inflammation. Coughing, sneezing or other kinds of movement can be painful. If neglected, the nerve irritation extends down one or both legs along the sciatic nerves. The pain appears in the leg, but the culprit is often the lower back!

There’s Hope!

sciaticaFortunately, improving joint motion in the lower back with a program of chiropractic adjustments has produced results for many people.

It all starts with a consultation and thorough examination. If we think we can help, we’ll tell you. And if we don’t think we can help, we’ll tell you that too and refer you to someone we think can. Get started today.

If the cause of your condition is related to the misalignment of one or more vertebra which is directly affecting the flow of nerve impulses to your body, you need to know that only specific chiropractic adjustments to gently move your spine into balance is going to fix the cause. Medications may change the symptoms you are experiencing, but drugs have serious side effects and do not address the cause of the symptom. Physical therapy in the case where spinal misalignments are the cause is a waste of money and time.

The diagnosis is simple. You either have misaligned vertebra or other boney components that are out of alignment or you don’t. A good analogy  is when your car’s wheels are out of alignment. The only fix is to realign your wheels.

Finding your problem:  Subluxations or misalignments for the benefits of laymens terms, are easy and painless to detect by a highly trained and experienced chiropractor. Call us today at 949 388-0800 and let us get you back to health.

Conditions & Symptoms

I experienced instant relief of my acute symptoms

“As a cycling coach and spin instructor, I am accustomed to extreme conditioning and lengthy outdoor training. This past May, I had a cycling accident two weeks prior to the Iron Horse Bicycle Classic in Durango, Colorado.  It was one of the painful injuries I have ever suffered. I couldn’t move my neck or shoulder.  My elbow and wrist were badly sprained.

I had a consultation and examination with Dr. Chris Hawn and after the very first treatment; I experienced instant relief of my acute symptoms and an increase in my range of motion of my neck and shoulder.  With just a few treatments from Dr. Chris, I was back on my bike and finished the race with my best time ever!”

Vibration Wave Therapy after Knee Replacement Surgery

“I had a knee replacement surgery in February 2011 and following that I went through 100 therapy rehabilitation sessions. My knee started to tighten up through all that with scar tissue formation.

I came to Dr. Hawn about a month ago for a neck problem primarily. During my initial consultation he inquired about my knee because I had written down that there was a problem there. He then recommended the Vibration Wave therapy for me in regards to the knee. Since receiving the very first treatment I’ve been able to exercise it much more easily and with less pain, and more mobility.

It certainly work for me

The vibration wave therapy seems to be very relaxing for the muscles and tendons. It greatly took away the stress that I had because I was developing very tight tendons following the surgery. I received   four or five treatments and the tightness has lessened quite a bit.

I hope to recover even better from here on out.”

I now have hope where my M.D. just prescribed drugs

“Talk about getting better naturally.  Dr. Hawn presented a treatment plan that allowed me to take control of how much better I would get.  Between the specialized exercises, treatment, supports and caring attitude, I now have hope where my M.D. just prescribed drugs.”
