Avenue Clinic

An important thing to understand is that leg pain is a symptom of a problem-of something compressing or irritating the nerve roots that comprise the sciatic nerve-rather than a medical diagnosis or medical disorder in an of itself. This is an important distinction because it is the underlying diagnosis that often needs to be treated in order to relieve sciatic nerve pain. Common causes of sciatica are a lumbar herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease or spondylolisthesis.

Chiropractors in Southampton at the Avenue Clinic will try to ascertain the cause of your leg pain as this can also be from faulty foot movements, weak muscles, poor core stability, poor posture as well as using your back wrongly over and over again, often for years. We will look at the way you use your body and as well as treating your back with manipulation or mobilisation to improve local function.
