Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.

Suffering From Sciatica?

chiropractic care for sciatica

Emergency room doctors say that sciatica is one of the most common things they encounter each year in Oak Lawn. While there are large numbers of people that have this issue, many never achieve a long term solution. Their sciatic pain continues to worsen because they have not received the correct treatment. This article from Ruof Chiropractic will help you to understand the ins and outs of this condition, and what you can do to overcome it.

Many people wonder what sciatica feels like? Patients often describe the pain of sciatica as a slight discomfort to the most extreme unbearable pain. Sciatic pain can show up in different areas of the leg and foot, and many times the pain will come and go. Over years of time people tend to go through periods of pain that typically intensify as the problem goes unchecked.


Sciatica in Oak Lawn

The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the areas that a sciatic issue will start from. This area of the spine is very complicated, and it can be difficult to locate the problem. Our team will be able to work with you to zero in on the source. From there they will need to work with you to improve the position of the spine and discs.

Some patients say that all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper, and they were hit with extreme pain. They don't understand how an easy task caused them so much pain? The reality is that their condition was probably developing over years of time, that piece of paper just happened to be the last straw. Most spinal problems don't happen overnight, they build up over years of time.


How Long Does it Take to Correct Sciatica?

Treatment length can vary significantly from patient to patient. Some people respond very quickly while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of the disc or the joints that the chiropractor has to correct. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took to create it.

In the US the amount of people that end up with back surgery is staggering, and the low success rate is disappointing. It's estimated that back surgery is only about 15% effective within a five year period of time. That's simply not good enough for you.

If you are serious about turning this problem around, and avoiding surgery, call our team at Ruof Chiropractic in Oak Lawn today. We are here to answer any questions you have, and we look forward to meeting you soon.

What Our Patients Say

After being out of work for two weeks due to a back injury Dr. Ruof got me back to work within a week and I continue to improve with his therapies. My job involves heavy labor and I never imagined I would get back to it so quickly!

I called Dr. Ruof's office because I woke with severe pain in my neck and arm and was very worried. The staff got me in that very same day and now I'm back to getting a comfortable night's sleep. Highly recommended for immediate relief!
Adam R.

After suffering years of headaches Dr. Ruof took X-Rays of my neck. In under two weeks I no longer had daily headaches and I feel so much better. I wish I would have found him sooner! Anyone with headaches should talk to this doctor!
