What to Expect During Your First Visit with Our Lawrenceville Chiropractor

If this will be your first visit with one of our Lawrenceville or Norcross chiropractors, don’t be nervous. This experience will bring you closer to good health! When you enter the office, you will be greeted by our friendly, courteous staff who will take your important medical information and guide you through our office. Your first visit should take between 30 to 45 minutes. Arriving 15 minutes early for paperwork will help ensure a low wait time to meet your doctor.

Please bring any information pertinent to your injury with you, such as MRI reports or X-rays. A thorough chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurological examination will be performed to help diagnose your condition. X-rays may be taken to help rule out aggravating factors. If needed, other diagnostic tests may be ordered.

Once your doctor has reviewed the radiographs and their exam findings, you will be given a full report of what can be done to ensure the improvement of your condition. If your doctor feels chiropractic will help you, then a treatment plan will be given. Treatment is tailored to your specific needs.

10. The Pain of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is comprised of nerve roots coming out of the spinal cord into the lower back. The nerve runs through the buttock, down the back of the leg, and reaches down to the ankle and foot. Any compression or irritation of this nerve can cause sciatica, a condition causing pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling in the lower back and down the leg.

If you suffer from sciatica, you know that, if you’re lucky, the discomfort can be merely annoying. You also know that when it’s bad, it is excruciating and can really interfere with your daily life.

The Atlanta chiros Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain, believe that life is too short to live with constant sciatica pain. Our Lawrenceville and Norcross chiropractors treat sciatica through holistic and effective physical therapy and chiropractic care. Whether your symptoms were brought about by an auto or truck accident injury, one of the many slip and fall injuries in Atlanta or maybe a sporting injury, our Atlanta chiropractic specialists can help.

There are a number of things that can cause sciatica. The most common cause of sciatica stems from a bulging or ruptured (herniated) spinal disc putting pressure on the nerves. Sciatica can result from a trauma to the spine, such as from a slip and fall accident or car crash. It can also be caused by spinal stenosis, a pinched nerve, a tumor, or bone spurs caused by arthritis.

While many cases of sciatica will resolve on their own, there are treatments available to relieve the uncomfortable symptoms and restore you to a pain-free life.

At Gwinnett Medical in Atlanta will provide personalized treatment plans tailored to your specific needs. If you are struggling to manage your sciatica, contact our clinic at (770) 999-9689 to schedule an appointment today.
