Sciatic pain is not easy to deal with. Most people that are suffering from it have something pressing on the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back and buttocks down the leg.

Most medical doctors will recommend taking such things as NSAID’s, muscle relaxers, and epidural steroids. These may give temporary relief. However, they all come with undesirable side effects. None of them address the underlying cause of the problem, so it will probably return. In many cases, sciatica is due to improper spinal alignment that leads to disc problems or problems with posture. Keeping the spine healthy is a key to finding relief.
Surprisingly, lower back pain of this sort can be due to a problem in the upper neck area that is affecting the entire spinal column. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter in the upper two vertebrae of the neck can be the reason for sciatica. When the body compensates for this misalignment, all kinds of problems can ensue. We have been specifically trained to examine the upper neck, using the latest techniques, to find the misalignment. Once this is corrected through a gentle procedure, our patients report a decrease in sciatic pain. In some cases, it is totally eliminated after only a few visits.
