Chiropractic Care for Sciatica

When a patient experiences chronic low back pain in Portland, they will usually wait rather than choosing a treatment option. And the choice to take a painkiller or Advil to get through the day is the same as waiting. Painkillers do not fix the underlying root causes, they only mask the pain and do not address underlying issues.

Most patients wait for the pain to go away,….. they wait for the pain to get less,…… they wait for the workday to end, they look forward to the weekend so they’re not dealing with low back pain while working. The goal for addressing chronic low back pain should be addressing the root cause.
