Sciatica/leg pain is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of leg and can extend into the foot or toes. The sciatic nerve is made up of nerves that come out of the spine. Irritation to the nerve roots in the lumbar and/or lumbosacral spine cause sciatica.
We do a thorough assessment of the nervous system including digital x-rays, if needed, to determine if the nerves are getting irritated, determine the amount of degeneration and integrity of the spine. This helps us come up with a game plan to achieve a high level of success in at our office in Ebensburg. If you would like to see how we can help you, get scheduled today!
