Pinched Nerve Treatment in Gonzales, LA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

A pinched nerve in your back can cause severe pain the runs from your lower back and down the back of one leg running from the buttock down the back of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may begin abruptly or gradually. Usually, it is characterized by sharp, shooting pain that feels a lot like an electrical shock. Moving the leg, back or other part of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often intensive this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be distributed uniformly along the leg, but there often are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often accompanied by numbness or a tingling sensation along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which run from the lower back and down the back of both legs.

Causes of a Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve may result from a process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, including a ruptured intervertebral disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (known as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by in infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring three-quarters of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the network of nerves located in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its branches are what allow movement and feeling –or motor and sensory functions – in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is compressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these pathways. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can spread or radiate to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be caused by a bulging or herniated disk, degenerative disk disease, piriformis syndrome, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by trauma.

Any of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that causes your pain and other symptoms.

I had an amazing experience with Dr. Coleman. From the moment I walked into his office, I felt welcomed and at ease. Dr. Coleman took the time to listen to my concerns and thoroughly assess my needs before beginning any treatment. He was incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and friendly throughout the entire process. Dr. Coleman's adjustments were gentle yet effective, and I felt immediate relief after each session. He also provided me with exercises and stretches to do at home to help improve my posture and alleviate my pain. I appreciated his attention to detail and willingness to educate me on how to better care for my body. The office itself was clean, comfortable, and inviting. The staff were all friendly and accommodating, making scheduling appointments and navigating insurance a breeze. Overall, I would highly recommend Dr. Coleman and his practice to anyone in need of chiropractic care. He truly goes above and beyond to provide exceptional service, and I am grateful for the positive impact he has had on my health and wellbeing. Thank you, Dr. Coleman!

Dr. Coleman is simply AMAZING! He’s been my doctor since 2018 when I got into a car accident. Now when I have issues I call in and they help me right away. His wife and daughter treats me like family. They all are the best. You won’t be disappointed going here.
