Sciatica

Sciatica is a common type of pain that affects the sciatic nerve, a large nerve which extends from the lower back down the back of each leg.

Depending on the severity, pain can also be felt in the foot or toes. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body. In most people, sitting makes the pain worse.

Sciatica is caused by irritation of the root(s) of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine.

Martin Wellness has successfully treated hundreds of patients suffering from Sciatica pain. Avoid surgery and drugs. Call today to see if we can help.

Additional causes of sciatica include: 

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back.

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

    The breakdown of discs between your vertebrae. Occurs after prolong subluxation.

  • Spondylolisthesis

    A condition in which one vertebra slips forward over another one  .

  • Pregnancy

    The sciatic nerve runs under your uterus to your legs. Pressure on the nerve caused by the developing baby.

Other things that may make your back pain worse include being overweight, not exercising regularly, wearing high heels, or sleeping on a mattress that is too soft. Seek immediate medical attention if you have progressive lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and/or loss of bladder or bowel control.

I started coming to see Dr. Martin after I began experiencing lower back pain while working out. I have been coming now consistently for over a year now and am happy to say that my lower back pain is gone, and I can now really push myself in my workouts. I now continue to see Dr. Martin for preventative care! Thanks!

What an energizing health acquaintance & experience you will treasure when you visit this office! The easy-going professional demeanor makes it a pleasure and relief as I have experienced for ear (fullness) and sinus challenges. Not only are the adjustments by Dr. Martin both gentle and relieving, the staff goes the extra mile to provide a welcoming & comfortable assurance. I am thankful for this valuable prescription.

I truly believe that my visits every other week are what keeps me healthy and energized. I live a very busy life and staying healthy is important. If I feel a little “something” (cold, sinus) coming on a quick word and visit to Dr. Martin always seems to help. As well, it is always nice to visit such a positive place.

I have benefitted from being a patient of Dr. Martin for a few years. I have experienced vibrant health as a result. My flexibility and activity levels have increased, my previous back issues are resolved and my immune system works very well – cold & flu free for several seasons. I also find that my stress levels are lowered, even though life’s stresses are still present. Walking into offices at Martin Wellness is an uplifting experience – the staff and energy in the office is exhilarating. Thank you!

Receiving chiropractic care has absolutely transformed my health and well-being! Before meeting Dr. Martin, I suffered from chronic pain, anxiety, and depression. I was also diagnosed with fibromyalgia. A medical professional once told me that I would just have to manage these issues every day for the rest of my life. Not true!
Under the care of Dr. Martin, my pain is significantly lessened, feelings of anxiety and depression are rare, and I no longer require prescriptions. I wish I had known about the understood the benefits of regular adjustments much sooner in life. I now make it a high priority for me and for my children.
Dr. Martin provides exceptional care that is both efficient and compassionate. The moment I walk in the door at Martin Wellness, I feel like the healing has already begun!

Melissa's coaching has empowered me with the tools I needed to achieve balance in my life, personal and professional success and optimal health. People often overlook the importance of accountability and goal setting when it comes to their personal life. I am grateful for the coaching lens that has taught me how to look at my life, prioritize and become the best person I can be. I am finding that as I continue to develop these skill and utilize the tools I have received from my coach, I have far less regrets and am enjoying a full and abundant life.
