Sciatica / Sciatic Nerve Pain

Sciatica/ sciatic nerve pain is sometimes difficult for a suffering person to identify. It is often a tingling, numbing feeling that takes place in the lower back and can sometimes travel down the leg. These areas can seem especially tender at times. Sciatica is caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerve.

According to several different studies, approximately 40% of people will get sciatica at some point in their lives. If you are suffering from sciatic nerve pain, don’t resort to prescription drugs. Dr. Curtis Potts, your Reno chiropractor, can offer you a natural and effective solution.

Lumbar Relief / Lower Back Pain

The lower back carries all the weight of a person’s torso, and is the center of a person’s entire body. That being said, the health of your lower back affects everything you do. Something as simple as lifting up your arm can be painful when you suffer from lower back pain.

Too often, doctors prescribe drugs for a person who suffers from lower back pain. Prescription drugs put people at risk for addiction and other side effects. Consult your Reno chiropractor, Dr. Curtis Potts, to receive effective lower back pain relief treatment.

Spine Pain Relief / Back Pain

Spine pain is also a type of pain that affects your daily life, but can be easily managed by chiropractic treatments. There are many different structures in the spine that can cause back pain. Pain can occur when the nerve roots that run to the legs and arms are irritated or the smaller nerves that innervate the spine are irritated. If the he large paired back muscles (erector spinae) are strained, you may experience spinal pain. Or if the bones, ligaments or joints themselves are injured, you may experience back pain. Many times, injuries incurred from sports or other traumatic forces will result in back pain. For fast back pain relief in Reno, call your local chiropractor, Dr. Curtis Potts.

Herniated Disc Relief / Spinal Disc Herniation

A herniated disc occurs when one of the rubbery cushions that stack up between your vertebrae to make your spine ruptures. If a disc becomes ruptured or herniated, it will swell and put pressure on spinal nerve roots. This will cause pain in the lower back and legs.

Sadly, many people overlook the option of a natural solution to disc herniation and head straight for surgery or injections. A herniated disc surgery consists of actually shaving off part of a disc so that it does not touch the spinal nerves any more. After the painful recovery, a person may experience relief initially, but may find that pain returns from a re-herniation. Surgery also puts a person at risk for scar tissue build up, which can be painful. Once this damage is done, it’s very difficult to undo, if not impossible.

Before opting to shave your purposeful disc away, seek a natural solution. A chiropractic treatment may be able to set your disc back right again. Your Reno chiropractor, Dr. Curtis Potts, can work with you and come up a solution for your herniated disc back pain. Don’t wait, because the longer you go without treatment, the more difficult it will be to treat. Call our Reno Chiropractic office today.
