Sciatica vs. Chiropractic
Scientific research has proven that chiropractic corrective care decreases sciatic nerve pain by removing neurological interference and restoring proper biomechanics
to the lumbar spine. Here are the results:
• Decreased low back and leg pain significantly
• Improved lumbar spine range of motion
• Decreased muscle spasm and inflammation
• Reduced leg numbness and tingling
• Decreased medication consumption and medical expenses
• Reduced possibility of low back surgeries and injections
• Chiropractic is just as, or more, effective in treating sciatica as surgery in 60% of cases.
People of all ages benefit from chiropractic care because it restores optimal function to the
nervous system, allowing the body to heal from the inside out, without drugs or surgeries. Who do you know that would benefit from a healthy, functioning nervous system?
