The discs between the spinal verterbrae of the lower back are often the primary cause of sciatica. The discs are composed of a spongiform ring of cartilage with a more gel-like center. These discs cushion the spine from compressive forces, but may be damaged by rotational movements, lifting and prolonged sitting. Herniation of a disc occurs when the center extrudes into the spinal canal, and compresses the nerve.
Each case is treated individually and thoroughly assessed to determine the most appropriate type of treatment which could include adjustments to the verterbrae, traction and muscle relaxation techniques. All of which will increase motion. The treatment is often combined with advice regarding lifting, working and excercises preventing future relapses.

Sara is a fantastic chiropractor both in the technical skills she applies but also, and as important, in the relationship she creates with me as a patient. Her listening, empathy and support are exceptional and I would be happy to recommend her to anyone. She makes me feel confident in her approach and that my condition is being treated in the best way. She has never been unable to answer a question I have and I always feel very comfortable and safe when being treated. She is great!
I would (and have done) recommend Milton to anyone who has a problem. Care and treatment top class.
