Lower back Pain, Numbness in both thighs and hands

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Patient FR came into my office in late May 2013 complaining of severe lower back pain with severe numbness in his right upper thigh and a feeling that he described as if his feet were on fire as well as numbness in his hands and a stiff neck. His condition started six months ago and has been getting worse. He stated that he lost his house in Hurricane Sandy and worked 12-15 hours a day for 6 months straight to try and get his home back to normal. He was diagnosed with sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. After a lengthy spinal analysis and X-Rays of the neck and lower back, I determined that patient FR had suffered a pinched nerve in his neck and in the upper and lower lumbar spine. 12 Chiropractic Adjustments later and patient FR felt no neck stiffness and no lower back pain and no more numbness in his hands. He still had burning in his feet. Patient FR continued with Chiropractic care at a rate of 3 visits per week and occasionally 2 visits per week and he is now almost completely symptom free. Removing the nerve interference’s within the cervical and lumbar spine of patient FR has allowed the patient, FR, to repair and restore himself back to normal.

Lower Back Pain Relief/Bracco Chiropractic

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.

Sciatic Pain?

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 31 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.

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! My own wife was pregnant with twins and had an annoying sciatica problem that became almost non-existent after her adjustments. By the way, she had a full term natural pregnancy with two healthy boys- one 8 lbs. and one 7 lbs.! So if you’re pregnant and just waiting for the nine months to end so you can find relief-don’t wait any longer. Come visit the Bracco Chiropractic  Center today for your adjustments and start feeling good again and enjoy the remainder of your pregnancy! My office is located in Heartland Village near the Staten Island Mall, call  for an appointment at 718-494-9390.
