Hey guys, it’s Dr. Jamie Adams coming at you from Covington Family Chiropractic. And today I want to talk for just a few minutes about one of the main reasons that people visit a chiropractor and that’s because of psychotic pain. And for those of you guys that have struggled with that, you know, just how incredibly painful it can be and how it can significantly affect the quality of your life. And so what are some symptoms of sciatica So, you know, whether or not you’re suffering from it, the most common is having low back pain, but also with sciatica, the pain travels down your legs can cause a lot of numbness and tingling sometimes into the legs and pinky toes. And even in severe cases can lead to loss of function in the feet and into the legs. And so, let’s talk about the normal medical approach for those things.
A lot of times when you have that type of situation, you may go visit your primary care physician, and he’s going to give you only a handful of things to help manage the problem, painkillers muscle relaxers. Sometimes they might, might even recommend injections to help with the pain, but remember, those things are only masking a symptom. They’re not getting to the root cause of why you have that problem. And that’s, what’s different about us as chiropractors is we want to figure out why and you have that pain, get it corrected, right And get you back to living your life again.
So what causes sided pain 99% of the time that psychic pain it’s caused from a misalignment in your spine. Now, when we think about pain down our legs and pain into our extremities, we sometimes don’t think about the problem originating from the spine, but what happens throughout the course of our life, we experienced traumas.
So maybe, you’ve been in a car accident, maybe you’ve had a slip or fall. You play a lot of sports. Maybe you’ve had an injury. maybe you just have a very stressful job. Maybe you commute into the city. So you sit for long hours a day. All of that, those things can greatly impact your spine. And what begins to what happened is that these small bones are the vertebrae of your spine can become shifted and misaligned. And when that happens, we call that a subluxation and these subluxations pinch on these spinal nerves. And when we get a pinch of that psychic nerve, which is a big nerve, that’s made up of these three nerves at the bottom, what happens is it now can send that excruciating pain and numbness and tingling down into the lower extremity. So what we can do to help you in this office is do a thorough and complete examination, which does usually include a full set of x-rays.
So we can see where that issue is coming from, where that problem is coming from. We have state-of-the-art NASA certified in space engineered technology that also helps us assess the integrity of your spine. And then of course, we provide very specific, very gentle, very safe chiropractic adjustments to the bones that need to be realigned. And when that, when we do that, it takes pressure off of these nerves, allows your body to heal and correct that side from the inside out and lets you get back to living life again, usually again without the need for those painkillers and those muscle that you’ve been taking. So give us a call. We’d love to do a complimentary consultation to see if chiropractic can help you with your side pain discomfort. We look forward to talking to you soon, have a great day.
