Sciatica is a condition that causes pain, weakness and/or numbness that shoots down one or both legs. It is often caused by a misalignment of the lumbar vertebrae or a slipped disc. This can be caused by trauma or long-term degeneration of the spine. If you suspect that you are suffering from sciatica, don’t wait till the pain is unbearable to seek care. Delaying treatment can lead to long-term damage to your sciatic nerve. At Richard Williams Chiropractic Family & Sports Care, we will determine the cause of your condition through a detailed history and exam and design a treatment plan to your needs.
