Sciatica

Sciatica is pain that radiates anywhere along the path of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back through the buttocks and down the back of each leg. Sciatica is usually a secondary condition that is arising from some other issue irritating or compressing the sciatic nerve.

Sciatica most commonly affects only one side of the body. Some people also experience burning, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the leg or foot. In most people, sitting makes the pain worse.

It is important to seek immediate medical attention if you have progressive lower extremity weakness, numbness in the upper thighs, and/or loss of bladder or bowel control.

The Village Chiropractic Center has successfully treated hundreds of patients suffering from sciatica pain. Avoid surgery and drugs. Call today to see if we can help.

Common Causes of Sciatica 

  • Disc Herniation

    The discs are like cushions between the vertebrae in your spine, and can bulge or rupture and press on a nerve. In the lower back, this can lead to localized lower back pain or pain along the course of the sciatic nerve. On occsion it causes no pain and is found incidentally.
  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

    Narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back.

  • Bone Spurs

    Bone spurs are bony outgrowths called osteophytes that form on the ends of bones due to spinal degeneration. Though they are associated with the wear and tear of aging and often found incidentally on x-ray or MRI, they can irritate nerves and lead to symptoms like sciatica.  
  • Spondylolisthesis

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

Patient Reviews

TOM, St. Augustine, FL

Dr. Berry,

I would like to thank you for showing concern for a new client. I came to your office last Thursday and your putting concern for me instead of your business SAVED MY LIFE. You arranged for me to get an EKG prior to the chiropractic visit, and that set a series of events in motion that led to having a 100% blockage in my artery removed that same day. If I had delayed (or not followed through with your instructions) I might not be here today. I want to thank you for having that concern and wait until I get back into your office and thank you personally. Again, thanks.

Just before Christmas I stopped in your office, late in the day unannounced, and you were getting ready to leave. You delayed your departure to take care of the pain in my neck. Later, after you left, I learned that you were anxious to leave because your wife was not well.

Sir, that is patient care "above and beyond"! Many thanks for your special attention in light of the circumstances.

Blessings, E.B.

After years of pain, Dr. Berry and his staff gave me a new lease on life. When I leave their office after a treatment I have so much energy and are virtually pain free.

Thanks for changing my pain to painfree.

About two years ago I took a fifteen hour road trip, after which I experienced extreme pain in my back and right leg. After recieving treatment from various massage therapists and chiropractors for two years I experienced no real pain relief.

I was sharing my experiences with several of my friends one evening and one of my friends spoke of Dr. Berry who was successful in treating her husbands leg discomfort.

Dr. Berry introduced me to the ProAdjuster. I was given detailed information on how it works and why I was having pain. The information he has given me has become a path to my recovery.

Dr. Berry and his staff are kind, caring health professionals. They make it easy and comfortable to share the details of my pain. In a few short weeks my pain has subsided.
