URBANA, MD, June 05, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Sciatica, which is also sometimes called a "herniated disk" is a condition that prompts over 3 million visits to the emergency room every year. It is severe lower back pain that affects the sciatic nerve, which runs along the back, behind and legs. This nerve is extremely sensitive and when affected can cause sharp pains right down to the lower part of the leg and foot.
Dr. L. Neil King of King Chiropractic in Maryland is an Urbana sciatica doctor who specializes in the effective treatment and prevention of sciatica in his patients. He sees this issue often over the course of a year and has a superior grasp on which treatments work best for certain types of patients. The sooner patients with this common ailment come to his office for a treatment, the better for their recovery.
The first step to resolving issues with sciatica is diagnosis, and diagnosis is largely based on symptoms that the patient experiences. Common symptoms of sciatica include:
- Severe pain in the back that makes it difficult to walk, stand or even sneeze
- A pins and needles feeling in the feet
- Unexplained numbness in one or both legs or feet
- Any unfavorable change in your normal activity level due to pain
When a patient comes into Urbana sciatica chiropractor Dr. King's office with all or most of these symptoms he knows what needs to be done. Chiropractic adjustments can be made to the lower back and other points in the body to relieve the immediate pain. Ongoing therapy is often recommended including ice or heat therapies and special exercises to relieve the symptoms. Treatments vary depending on the patient.
Patients who are middle-aged (between 30 to 50) often come to the chiropractor's office complaining of sciatica-related pain. It gets progressively worse with time if it's left untreated.
"Time is of the essence. It's so important for patients who are experiencing back pain to come to our office as early as the symptoms begin. Regular chiropractic adjustments, a healthy exercise regimen and a good diet can all help improve sciatica," Dr. King explains.
