PIRIFORMIS Sciatica.

Southern Spinal Care

Most people probably understand the sciatica syndrome caused by a LOWER BACK bulging disc.

It causes pain down the back of the leg up to the knee or beyond, sometimes together with numbness or pins and needles.

However, a lesser known cause of sciatica is spasm of the piriformis muscle putting pressure on the sciatic nerve, usually caused by a pelvis or sacrum positional fault.

Chiropractors correct these pelvic and sacrum faults.

The sciatic nerve can remain slightly inflamed after the correction, however, the symptoms usually subside in a few days.
