Schererville Sciatica Treatment

We've helped a lot of patients in our Schererville, IN office who are suffering from sciatica, and it's a condition that can result in incredible agony and disability. The good news is that you don't have to endure this, because chiropractic care is a great way to get you out of pain.

The sciatic nerve is one of the biggest nerves in your body, and runs from your spine, through your pelvis, and down the back of your leg. Because this crucial nerve flows through so many small spaces, it's vulnerable to being aggravated or pinched.

Sometimes sciatic pain originates in the lower back where the nerves leave the spinal column; sometimes the nerve can be irritated from the piriformis muscle in the pelvis.

One of the first things Dr. Benko will do is conduct a careful evaluation that will help locate the actual root cause of your distress. This might not even be exactly where you're feeling discomfort, as the nerve can be pinched much higher up in your body than where you're sensing the tingling or numbness.

Once we've revealed the cause of your problems, we'll be able to start working towards recovering the normal function of your spine and sciatic nerve. Removing restrictions or tightness on the nerve will then relieve the symptoms.

Our office is conveniently located in Schererville, IN and we are currently accepting new patients. Give our office a call today at (219) 322-9999 and we'll get you scheduled as soon as possible.
