Sciatica Causing Back Pain

Is Sciatica to Blame for Your Pain? If you're noticing radiating pain along the sciatic nerve that runs down from the lower back through the legs, you may have a herniated disk or bone spur that's applying pressure to the sciatic nerve. The way to discern that the pain is coming from the sciatic nerve is that the location of the pain will originate in the lower spine and radiate down the back of the leg. Sciatica also tends to affect only one side of the body. While many people rely on medication for sciatic pain, it's important to fix the root cause which is typically in regards to your alignment, weight, injury to the spine, or a combination of the three.

Backpack Safety from a Chiropractor

Backpacks: a practical and convenient method that many children and adolescents use to lift and carry bulky textbooks, computers, journals, and other supplies. Backpacks were created to properly distribute the heavy load of supplies onto the most durable muscles people have—for example, the lower and middle back muscles prevent fatigue and stabilize the body. If utilized correctly, backpacks can give kids and adults the capability to lug around the heavy textbooks or technology of every day school and work without the burden of potential muscle or joint damage. At Meyer Chiropractic, we want to make sure that you're using a backpack properly when it's absolutely necessary to use one.

Chiropractic care is a natural method of health care that focuses on treating the causes of the pain, which is often tailored to each patient’s age, condition, and specific pain they might be dealing with. Chiropractic adjustments are when a small thrust is applied to the body to relieve nerve or joint tensions. There may be varying amounts of force and treatment frequency customized for each individual, which enters the notion that different conditions require different intensities.
