I want to talk to you about the #1 cause of missed work in the United States. It’s low back pain.

Low back pain affects countless Americans and costs billions in lost productivity due to employees missing work. One of the main symptoms causing people to miss work is sciatica pain. Oftentimes people have pain shooting down the leg sometimes with numbness and tingling. They will go to their doctor for an assessment to see why it is happening. But many times they leave with a diagnosis of sciatica. However, sciatica is a symptom, not specifically a diagnosis. 



So where exactly is the pain coming from? The pain is coming from one specific entity. That’s either going to be a nerve entrapment by the piriformis, disc herniation in the low back or it can be from a nutritional deficiency such as vitamin B12. When you have a diagnosis of sciatica you want to figure out what exactly is causing that problem so you get a long-term fix. Taking pain pills, muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatories may help in the short-term but it’s not going to do anything in the long-term to fix that problem. Anytime you experience these symptoms you want to get to the root cause of the problem to fix it, not just addressing the nerve pain called #Sciatica. In our office, we have #chiropractic, #massage and #acupuncture which have all shown great results in dealing with sciatica pain and correcting the underlying issue rather than just a bandaid for the symptoms.
