    I am now about 90% better than I was. It’s the first time I have been to see a Chiropractor and it’s the best thing I could have done.

Not all leg pain is sciatica. Pain in the legs can come from pressure on a nerve which can be pressure on the sciatic nerve or on many other nerves. Pain in the legs can also be what is called “referred” pain coming from joints, ligaments, and muscles around the low back and pelvis. Knowing the source is the key to finding the correct treatment plan.

Pain in my legs has reduced

I am a 63 year old female, still working part-time as an adult education tutor. I had been experiencing pains in my legs and increasing stiffness in my neck and shoulders as well as a general feeling of being unbalanced.

The stiffness in my neck and shoulders has improved considerably. The pain in my legs has reduced and my general mobility, flexibility and balance have improved, probably to the point they were at 10 years ago.


 

My acute pain has disappeared completely

I am a semi-retired teacher who started visiting the Nottingham Chiropractor because I was unable to bear weight on my right leg occassionally and was becoming anxious about walking long distances.

The acute pain has disappeared completely. My back definitely feels more flexible and my posture has improved. I have also been given good exercises to further strengthen my muscles, I never feel now as though my leg wouldn’t bear my weight. I have largely reached my goal but come every month to maintain my improved pain and mobility.

It’s the best thing I could have done

I have always been an active person. I love gardening, walking our dog and I go dancing once a week. I am retired now but my working life was 27 years sales assistant and seven years cleaning at the university.

Having suffered 6 weeks of severe pain in my leg and back 24-7 which the doctor diagnosed as “Sciatica” I was desperate to get some relief. I came to see Dr Sanders (Chiropractor) and found the treatment and information he gave me was much more than my general practitioner could have ever done.

I am now about 90% better than I was. It’s the first time I have been to see a Chiropractor and it’s the best thing I could have done. I have still a little way to go but the relief from the constant pain is a joy.
