Back Pain, Sciatica & Neck Pain
Dr. Wasserman employs chiropractic techniques for treatment of back pain caused by mechanical strain or physical stressors such as poor posture, sedentary lifestyle or repetitive motion. He can also address back pain related to joint inflammation or stenosis.
Sciatica is a painful nerve disorder that presents in the legs and is caused by compression of the sciatic nerve in the lower back. The compression can be due to a herniated disc, cysts, tumors, or a misalignment in the joint. Chiropractic manual cervical manipulation can be applied to relieve debilitating sciatic nerve pain.
Neck pain can be caused by several factors. Moderate to less severe afflictions associated with neck pain can be treated with spinal adjustments and soft tissue massage using chiropractic care. If you're experiencing severe neck pain or numbness that radiates into your limbs you may need to seek emergency medical treatment. Similarly, if you have fever, headache or if you're vomiting, you should seek emergency medical treatment.
Physiotherapy, also called the science of movement, employs specific exercises in conjunction with chiropractic adjustments to reduce pain and discomfort from injuries while also strengthening and toning the body. This treatment plan is designed to reduce pain and discomfort to allow for improved physical movement, range of motion and flexibility.
