Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated or compressed. It only takes the weight of a 20 pence piece to irritate the nerve. That isn’t a lot is it?
Just imagine a 20 pence piece balancing on a delicate wire. Chiropractic helps to remove the weight of the coin from the wire, which allows it function normally.
Sciatica symptoms may include pain, numbness, or tingling in the lower back, buttocks and legs. It can be extremely painful. And unfortunately Dr Alun sees lots of people with this common complaint.
I say unfortunately, as those who have experienced either one or more episodes of sciatica report how it greatly impacts their overall wellbeing and ability to live as they want on a day to day level.
