What is Sciatica?

Sciatica pain is commonly referred to as a pain in the leg or thigh. Low back problems such as disc bulges, arthritis, or stenosis can cause pain into the leg with or without low back pain. The problem is caused by pressure on the nerves in the back or pressure on the sciatic nerve itself. Sciatica tends to travel along the back of the thigh and leg and can cause extreme pain with movement. You might even experience sciatica down to your feet or toes. This type of back problem often causes severe problems with mobility for patients. If you think you have sciatica, we may be able to help. At Crosstown Chiropractic, we frequently provide effective treatment for sciatica back pain relief.

Can I Get Back Pain Due to Stress?

Yes, you can, as back pain is commonly the result of muscle tension. When you are stressed out you tend to carry your body in a different way causing slumping or slouching in your shoulders.  Poor posture and tense muscles can lead to back pain.  Fortunately, we can help you get your muscles relaxed through chiropractic and massage therapy treatment in Chicago, IL.

Who Should I See for Back Pain Treatment?

Back pain can be debilitating. Often, back pain prevents patients from working, playing, and living life. When your back hurts, you cannot move as much as you would like, which can lead to other health issues, such as depression, weight gain, or anxiety. A primary care provider, such as a chiropractor at Crosstown Chiropractic, will effectively help you manage your back pain. Typical low back pain usually responds well to chiropractic care. If your symptoms do not improve, your chiropractor can help to refer you to pain management or a spine surgeon if conservative treatment is not enough. Through proper diagnosis and care, you can often reduce your back pain without the use of prescription painkillers or surgical procedures.  

The sooner you see a chiropractor the better the possibility of improvement.  Back pain is easiest to treat conservatively before the problem is too severe.  Visit us at Crosstown Chiropractic to determine treatment options for your back pain.  Contact our office to make your appointment for a back pain evaluation today! We look forward to meeting you and helping with your chiropractic needs.
