Sciatica Pain Relief Lansing MI
Sciatica is a distracting pain that begins in the lower back and extends down one or both legs. It typically worsens with periods of sitting or standing.
The discs between the spinal bones of the lower back are often involved. Pills or muscle relaxers can’t correct the nerve compression caused by a bulging disc.
Trauma can cause one or more discs to bulge. This crowds nearby nerves, causing irritation and inflammation. Coughing, sneezing or other kinds of movement can be painful. If neglected, the nerve irritation extends down one or both legs along the sciatic nerves. The pain appears in the leg, but the culprit is often the lower back!
Fortunately, improving joint motion in the lower back with a program of chiropractic adjustments has produced amazing results for many people.

Contracted Leg Length Test
Have the test subject wear a pair of hard soled shoes and lie across a bed, face down, with arms relaxed at each side. (The head must remain straight down throughout the test.)
Apply equal pressure with both thumbs to the arches of each shoe. Are both legs of equal length when the bottoms of the shoes are parallel?
Bend both legs to a 90° angle so the bottoms of the shoes are parallel with the floor. Does one leg appear shorter?
A difference of greater than 1/4” in any of the positions is clinically significant. Uneven leg length is a common sign of spinal problems that often respond to chiropractic care. Find out if we can help. Call Rassel-Daigneault Holistic Health now to arrange a more thorough examination!
