Tracy suffered from chronic leg pain and got significant pain relief in her first few treatments. While large improvements are often common in a relatively short space of weeks with Chiropractic care, some conditions may take longer based on your levels of stress, inflammation and presence of other degenerative and disease processes. Leg pain is often caused by injury and inflammation to the discs between your vertebra; they can bulge and herniate which can irritate the nerves exiting the spine leading to leg pain. This is often referred to as Sciatic pain or Sciatica. Chiropractic care should always be considered first for arm and leg pains, as often, successful Chiropractic management can prevent more costly surgeries and rehabilitation, which can be truly appropriate depending on the level of injury, but is often overused by those doctors and surgeons who lack adequate referral sources for conservative chiropractic care evaluations and treatment by a chiropractor.
