low back pain:  lumbar radiculopathy (sciatica)

Pressure on the nerve roots in the low back can cause severe pain into the buttocks and legs, this is referred as lumbar (low back) radiculopathy (pressure on the nerve roots). This pain is sometimes referred to as sciatica because it mimics the same type of pain that is felt when the sciatic nerve is compressed by the piriformis muscle. Treating in our office consists of Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Physiotherapy treatment to the low back which will release the pressure on the nerves in the lower back. This condition is commonly treated successfully in our office.
