Sciatic Nerve Compression Usually Causes Sciatica

Piriformis syndrome is named because of the piriformis muscle. The piriformis muscle is found in the low portion of the spinal column. The piriformis muscle, which has the sciatic nerve beneath it, connects to the thighbone and helps in hip rotation. Such associations may cause spasm and cramping to grow in the piriformis muscle, thus pinching the sciatic nerve and causing pain and inflammation.

Sciatic nerve compression may lead to the lack of feeling, paralysis of one limb or number of muscles, and sleeplessness.

The staff was very friendly and professional.  Most importantly,  all of the different therapy and adjustment procedures are second to none! Enjoyed every second I was here. Will schedule many more!
