Sciatica Treatment in Sugar Land TX
Sciatica refers to pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling in the leg. Sciatica is mainly created by injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve. Sciatica is a symptom of another medical problem, not a medical condition on its own. Sciatica branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body. People who continue to have severe sciatica in Sugar Land TX need to seek professional care such at Total Chiropractic & Wellness Center where Dr. Yvette Nadeau has been helping thousands of patients avoid back surgery.
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes pinched, usually by a herniated disk in your spine or by an overgrowth of bone (bone spur) on your vertebrae.
More rarely, the nerve can be compressed by a tumor or damaged by a disease such as diabetes, where this procedure would NOT be a good fit for you or if there is any loss in bladder or bowel function.
