Often when patients come to me with leg pain caused by sciatica, it is really caused by something that goes even deeper. Hello. My name is Dr. Welch, and I am one of the top chiropractors in South Lake Tahoe, and my office is located in Meyers, . I have been successfully treating patients experiencing pain from sciatica for many years, and I believe that I can help you too.
More often than not, sciatica is not the cause of your pain. The sciatica is often a symptom of something else, such as disc tearing and spinal stenosis, which I can help treat through a number of chiropractic therapies, including spinal manipulation, stretching and resistance techniques, and trigger point therapy. I will also teach you exercises when you visit my office.
What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is a painful condition that is the result of an irritation of the sciatic nerve, which is often caused by a herniated disc. Other causes of sciatica include irritations of the nerve caused by infections, tumors, injury and internal bleeding.
Some of the symptoms that you may experience if you have sciatica include numbness, pain and burning or tingling sensations going up and down the leg, and often the condition can make walking extremely difficult. Don’t let this happen to you. I am able to treat your sciatica symptoms, and you won’t need to take any addictive medications or undergo painful surgery.
If you live in the Tahoe Basin, and are suffering from pain caused by sciatica, call or come in to see me.
