Sciatica is a very common ailment in which pain radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve. The pain can run down one or both legs and is felt in the lower back, rear, and/or legs. Typically the pain is more noticeable in the legs than in the other areas. It is frequently described as being a shooting pain or burning sensation. Usually sciatica only affects one side of the lower body. It rarely affects both sides at the same time. Numbness in the lower extremities is often reported as a symptom as well.At HealthMax Chiro we use chiropractic adjustment or chiropractic manipulation to restore the body to its correct skeletal joint motion. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is impeded from firing properly. This is usually due to the body being out of proper alignment. A primary objective of chiropractic medicine is to restore proper joint motion and remove barriers that would otherwise get in the way of proper nerve function.
For most people, sciatica responds very well to conservative care, and regular maintenance, including chiropractic treatment. Sciatica is not usually the result of a sudden injury, but instead happens gradually due to normal wear and tear on the body. Life happens! Our bodies are capable of performing extraordinary tasks, but need TLC to remain in optimal condition. At HealthMax Chiro we will evaluate your symptoms and develop a treatment plan to address the underlying cause of the problem.

I had been suffering with severe migraine headaches and neck pain. It affected my work performance and my home life. I saw multiple doctors, visited the emergency room, was prescribed medication, had blood tests and had a CT scan with no results. When I first came to HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson, they were very welcoming and showed real concern for my condition. They took the time to do a full exam, take digital x-rays and show me what was going on in my spine that was causing the headaches. The adjustments and low tech therapeutic exercises made me feel much, much better. I haven’t had a migraine or headache since the beginning of August! The Dr and the team at HealthMax Chiropractic of Hudson are absolutely wonderful and I recommend them to all of my friends. I don’t believe I would have gotten better if I had not come here.
“Having a very active lifestyle I know the importance of Chiropractic Care. Weightlifting activity, kids and after a couple of car accidents, it has become more prevalent. Finding the right Chiropractor that understands your body and can implement a care plan can sometimes be hard to find. I have seen numerous Chiropractors over the last 15 years but most were just back-crackers at best. After coming to HealthMax the first time, I knew I had found the right place. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for proper treatment.”
