Your sciatic nerve begins in your lower back and extends to your pelvis and down the legs. If you do have sciatica, chiropractic treatment is imperative to remove pressure on your nerves, rebalance your spine, take stress off your discs and permit your body's muscles and tissues to function in a more optimal manner.

Vertebral Subluxation
A term used to describe when one or more of the bones in your spine is out of normal position or has abnormal movement.  The subluxation creates pressure on or irritates the spinal nerves.  Spinal nerves are nerves that come out from narrow openings between the bones in your spine. The spinal nerves are an important part of the communication line between your brain and your body.  This pressure or irritation causes the nerves to malfunction and a miscommunication can occur between your brain, your body and vice versa. A veterbral subluxation is usually described as a complex which involves: spinal bones, nerves, muscles, soft tissue, and chemical components.

What causes subluxations?
A vertebral subluxation is a stress response of your body.  It can be caused by trauma, falls, poor posture, obesity, incorrect lifting, occupational hazards, lack of rest or exercise, poor diet, repetitive movements or postures, along with everyday stress.

How can this affect you?
Your nervous system controls and regulates every part and function in your body.  If the signals between the brain and body parts are interrupted then those areas will not be working at full potential or 100%.  Irritated nerves go beyond the usually back pain and headaches, functions such a digestion can also be affected.  If the nerves going to your stomach are being irritated you could be suffering from stomach issues.  Your nervous system controls every organ, cell, tissue  and function in your body.  For your body to function at its full potential and for you be  in optimal health, the nerve signals must be able to flow through spine freely, a spine without subluxations!

No pain=No Subluxations?
This statement is a common misconception.  Just like many health problems such as a cavity or heart problems the early stages are often symptom free.  It isn't until the later stages when damage has already occurred when you experience symptoms.  A spinal problem may exist for years before causing problems.

How are vertebral subluxations corrected? 
Doctors of Chiropractic are specially trained to detect and correct any subluxations which may be interfering with the nerve signals in your body.  Your chiropractor will conduct a full exam including history, neurological, orthopedic and postural evaluations and possibly x-rays if deemed necessary. A chiropractor uses an adjustment to restore normal motion and position of the spinal bones.
