Chiropractic treatment offers a remedy for many spine-related problems, such as herniated discs, stenosis, and sciatica. All of these conditions can lead to back pain, numbness, weakness in the legs and problems with mobility. At Frederick Chiropractic Wellness Center, we provide effective treatment to allow patients to get back to normal activities in comfort and with improved function.
Sciatica discomfort originates in the sciatic nerve that runs from the lower spine, into the buttocks and down the back of the legs. Problems arise when this large nerve becomes compressed by narrowing of the spinal canal or other issues. Disc problems, pregnancy, injury and postural problems can result in compression of this nerve. When this occurs, individuals may experience an ache, pain, tingling sensations in the leg, numbness or poor muscle function in the leg. Pain may occur in the buttocks or may radiate into the hip. Symptoms generally occur on only one side of the body. The discomfort can be either intermittent or continuous. Pain may be a chronic ache or maybe a shooting sensation. Symptoms may become worse when changing position or when the individual sneezes or coughs. Appropriate treatment can help to reduce these problems.
Your Frederick, MD chiropractor may provide a variety of care options for treatment of your sciatica. Heat or cold can help to reduce inflammation of the nerve to provide some relief from discomfort. Spinal manipulation is used to re-align spinal structures to prevent pressure on the nerve. In some cases, spinal decompression may be used to gently separate the spinal vertebrae to relieve pressure on discs that cushion the individual bones of the spine. The doctor may also use specialized devices that help to soothe the nerve or aid healing of surrounding soft tissues. We can also provide ergonomic advice to allow you to enjoy better comfort as you work or play.

I found Dr. Morrone to be very pleasant and I find her approach refreshing. Other chiropractors I have visited basically give you an adjustment without discussing the neurological connections. Looking forward to working with her and also to see how she may be able to help my daughter.
