Sciatic Pain/ChiropractorStatenIsl.com/Bracco Chiropractic Center

Many people suffer from pain radiating  from the lower back down the back of the thigh and continuing down below the knee into the calf and sometimes down the front and side of the leg.  Patients describe this pain as sharp, burning, stabbing, throbbing,  jolt like pain. It can be constant or it can be intermittent. The sciatic nerve is comprised of branches of nerves which exit from the lower back and upper sacral segments.  If you were to look at the sciatic nerve you would see that it’s one of the largest nerves in the body width wise. Now, nerves just don’t cause pain for the sake of pain. Most of the time, the sciatic nerve becomes painful because it becomes irritated. When one of the vertebrae in the lower back shift out of its normal position it can irritate the sciatic nerve and cause pain. There is no drug that can put that vertebrae back into its normal position. If the sciatica  is very severe drugs won’t even give temporary relief. I have been assisting patients with this condition for the past 36 years.   As a Chiropractor, I will analyze the stucture of the lumbar vertebrae and sacrum and then correct the cause of the sciatic pain and remove the irritation. Stop suffering needlessly from this condition.

Migraine Headaches/Chiropractic and Relief by BRACCO CHIROPRACTIC CENTER

Patient A.M. suffered from severe  migraine headaches everyday for the past three and a half years. The headaches were debilitating, and being a single mom with a young child, life was very difficult. MRI exam of her brain was negative and dark rooms and silence and prescribed drugs became a part of her life. On her first visit to the office she stated that she takes 300mgs of Topamax and 75mgs of Nortriptilene daily. I examined the patient Chiropractically to find if there was a cause of her headaches. Examination revealed two cervical vertebrae out of the normal alignment. These segments were very painful to touch. Chiropractic care was started and after 5 adjustments the patient said that this was the first time in three and a half years that she went two days without a headache. After 15 adjustments and 5 weeks later, her M.D. reduced her medication to 100mgs of Topomax and 25mgs of Nortriptilene. I feel confident that she will be off all medication in a short time. As a Chiropractor, what makes my profession so unique is that I don’t treat the symptoms but I look to find a cause of the symptoms, then remove the cause, and then step back and watch the awesomeness within the patient heal themselves.

Pregnancy, Lower Back and Sciatica Pain Relief With Gentile Chiropractic Care.

Many pregnant mom’s are very uncomfortable for several months or even worse all nine months not realizing that chiropractic adjustments can offer great relief.  That lower back pain or tingling burning sensation that radiates down the leg from  pressure caused by the weight of the fetus can be significantly reduced or even eliminated with gentle chiropractic adjustments. I have a special adjusting table in which the abdominal section of the table drops away  so it does not  exert any pressure to the abdominal area. Many mom’s have told me they don’t know how they could have ever made it through the pregnancy without their adjustments!

I’m 9 months pregnant and after 3 months of severe sciatic pain, i decided to give chiropractor a try. I was concerned, like many pregnant women, about the safety of chiropractic treatment. I am so glad my husband talked me into it and booked an appointment with Dr. Brocco. I am up on my feet, i dont have to drag my leg to walk anymore. I highly recommend Dr. Brocco. Very professional. Good bed side manners. Nice and calm office and very nice staff.

Back and Leg Pain/Chiropractic and Expectant Moms by Bracco Chiropractic Center

Ear Infections/Chiropractic and Children

Mother brought her 6 year old daughter to the office in August 2010 because she has suffered from ear infections on and off for the past two years. She did not have an ear infection at the time of her first visit, but the child sounded nasal and said that her ears always felt clogged. Examination of the child revealed a subluxation complex existed in the child’s upper neck or cervical spine. Mother stated that when the child has an ear infection she brings her to the pediatrician who examines her and prescribes antibiotics. The infections can last a  few weeks and sometimes the antibiotic is changed  for another antibiotic because the first was not effective. The child took approximately 15 Chiropractic adjustments in 4 months about 1 per week. In Mid December she started again with ear pain. Mom took her to the pediatrician who looked in her ears and determined that she had another infection. Mom brought the child to my office on the way home from the pediatrician and I examined her and felt that the child needed an adjustment and it was performed. She went home took the antibiotics and she returned to the office on Monday. On Monday the mother stated that the child felt much better and that she had never recovered from an ear infection this quickly. Chiropractic enables the body to work better and together Chiropractic and Medicine greatly reduced the time of  recovery.

Patient I.D. entered the office on the first week of December 2010 complaining of severe lower back pain. She rated her pain on a scale of 1-10, (10 being the worst) as a 7 on a good day and a 10 on a bad day. She stated that she lifted a heavy turkey on Thanksgiving and then her pain started. She had prior disc surgery, discectomy. She had numerous positive ortho’s as well as inflammation in the lumbar spine, hypertonicity in the lumbar paraspinals, and a antalgic lean left 2 degrees. She was treated with specific Chiropractic adjustments and 7 days later she has made vast improvement and wants to know when she can return to the gym to exercise.
