Sciatica can be caused by a herniated disc, bone spurs, or spinal stenosis; a narrowing of the spine that can lead to compression of the nerve. Sciatica typically will affect one side of the body. Sneezing, coughing, and straining are often extremely painful with sciatica. Our chiropractors are fully equipped to assess and address irritations of the sciatica nerve.

Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy (ESWT) is a non-invasive medical procedure that utilizes pressure waves to treat various musculoskeletal conditions. Generated outside the body, these shock waves are transmitted through the skin to the targeted area, promoting blood flow and healing, breaking down calcified tissue, and potentially reducing pain. There are two main types: Focused Shock Wave Therapy (high-energy waves for deep tissues) and Radial Shock Wave Therapy (low-energy waves for conditions closer to the surface). ESWT is commonly used to treat conditions like plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, shoulder tendinitis, and kidney stones. It is an outpatient procedure, generally considered safe, but may cause temporary pain and swelling in the treated area.
