Do you suffer from pain, numbness or tingling down the leg?
Sciatica is a term people often use to describe all manners of pain, numbness or tingling down the leg. In medical terms, sciatica refers to symptoms that result from compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. There are many other issues that mimic sciatic nerve compression, but are actually completely different conditions. Some common examples of conditions that mimic sciatica include disc issues, muscle strains, arthritis and peripheral nerve entrapment.
Successful treatment of sciatica and sciatica-like conditions hinges on proper diagnosis. Sciatica is often caused by spasm of the piriformis muscle resulting in piriformis syndrome. Spasm of this muscle can also cause asymmetric forces through the sacroiliac joint resulting in sacroiliac joint dysfunction. Sciatica treatment, piriformis syndrome treatment and sacroiliac joint treatment involve restoring the proper muscle activation pattern through corrective stretches, soft tissue massage and gentle adjustments.
"I had difficulty walking far without a tingling sensation and periodic pain in my legs. After several treatments with Dr. Ward, I was actually able to slowly begin jogging again."

Hear What our Patients Say
Dr. Ward and his staff are fantastic! When I came for my first visit, I was welcomed warmly and didn't wait long at all. Each time I was able to make an appointment without any problems. The pain in my hips has improved significantly and faster than I was expecting. Having found this wonderful office, I am able to be active again without pushing through pain.
