Sciatica often affects everyday activities such as standing, walking and sitting.
The sciatic nerve is one of the largest nerves in the human body. It originates from the low back and travels into the leg along the line of the buttock. The sciatic nerve has branches that innervate the movement and feeling of the thigh, knee, calf, foot and toes.
Sciatica begins when the sciatic nerve is compressed, inflamed or injured, this can occur anywhere along the path of the nerve and can affect the areas that the nerve innervates for movement or sensation.
Kissun Chiropractic can help patients with sciatica by identifying the underlying cause for the condition, the lifestyle factors which are likely to make it worse and the likely rate of progression of the condition. From this point a sound treatment plan can be implemented.
Condition-Related Patient Success Stories
Sciatica and Low Back Pain
I have been facing low back pain due to my active lifestyle when I was in college because I play basketball. The pain was so deep that I could barely walk as it was in my buttock and my leg. I have seen a TCM in Malaysia and they massage my low back with medicated oil, heated my low back with some kind of machine but it did not solve the problem. The pain became worse when I started working because I spend most of the time sitting. I tried acupuncture on my low back but it did not solve my problem.
When I met Dr Kissun, he analysed and explained my condition. I learnt that my spine was in a ‘S’ shape rather than being straight. Every treatment makes me feel better and my posture has improved overall.
Dr Kissun is an experienced and responsible Doctor. Chiropractic is a treatment without any medicine. It is a treatment that finds the cause of the pain and rectifies the problem.
I had been suffering from sciatica for a few years, after trying many medicines from my GP, TCM treatments, massage shops and plasters I was ready to try Chiropractic. After my consultation with the Doctor, I was impressed with the time spent on understanding my problem. Treatments were specific and to the point. I am pain free and able to get back to my jogging and soccer on a regular basis.
I was suffering from pain and discomfort running from my low back area into my leg. My condition showed improvement with regular treatment and thorough consultations from my Doctor. What stood out the most about my care at Kissun Chiropractic was the quality of care and accessibility/approachability to the Doctor is greatly appreciated. The Doctors are always there in case of any emergency. In case of any back/spine related issues, please get checked soon at Kissun Chiropractic.
Sciatica and Low Back Pain
Initially the Doctor relieved my lower back sciatic pain and then once pain free he has been able to bring back flexibility to my spine and recover movements in my lower back without causing further sciatic problems. He has monitored my progress and tailored the treatment to best suit my conditions. Don’t hesitate to give Kissun Chiropractic a try.
I was suffering from severe buttock and leg pain for a few weeks. I went for a few massages and tried some acupuncture but relief was temporary only - for a few hours. I had a few chiropractic sessions with the Doctor at Kissun Chiropractic and found the relief to last longer and longer after each session. The Doctor gave me great postural, proper ergonomics at work, and exercise advice which was very helpful. I was very happy to find a treatment method that wasn’t time consuming and that showed consistent improvement.
