Sciatica


Sciatica is pain that radiates from the lower back into the buttocks and down the back of one or both legs. It is caused by the irritation of the sciatic nerves, one of the largest nerves of the body. It usually begins as an acute pain in the lower back and then radiates down the back of either or both legs. There are 5 pairs of nerves that exit the spine in the lower back. These nerves make up what we know as the sciatic nerves. If the vertebrae or bones in the lower back are misaligned or out of place, or the disc between the vertebrae are swollen, bulged or herniated, the result is pressure on those nearby nerves. This can cause tremendous pain, and normal daily activities become almost impossible.


Chiropractic care works on correcting misaligned or out of place vertebrae and can remove the pressure placed on the sciatic nerve, reducing pain and improving flexibility and function. Isn’t it time you tried chiropractic care for you and your family? If you are experiencing any of the common symptoms below, please contact our office now to schedule an appointment. Common symptoms of sciatica include weakness of the knee or foot; sensation changes on the back of the calf or the sole of the foot; numbness, tingling, or pain from the back to the calf; difficulty walking; inability to move feet or foot; and the inability to bend the knee.

I started seeing Dr. Erlandson in the fall of 2012 for lower back pain. I’ve been to several chiropractors over the years and I have never had just a great adjustment. No pressure for several additional visits yet you know that he’s done such a thorough job! Dr. Erlandson takes such pride in his work and wants to make sure he’s done everything he can for you! His professional, compassionate, friendly and all around just a great doctor! His staff is always friendly and they make you feel so comfortable! I’ve had several massages from Emilie and she is fantastic at what she does! My son also see’s Dr. Erlandson and has been gone for 7 months at Basic Training and Advanced Training for the Army. He saw Dr. Erlandson right before he left and when we picked him up from the airport after our hello’s the first thing he asked for was for me to see if Dr. Erlandson could see him the next day! If you want to be treated by professionals that truly care about you then you’ve found the right place! I would recommend Eastview to anyone I know!

I have been a patient of Dr. Erlandson's and Eastview Family Chiropractic since summer. I am a dental hygienist who always has sore shoulders, neck and back from the awkward positions I sometimes have to use. The frequent adjustments and tissue massage will extend my career. I'm so glad I found this clinic.

Eastview Chiropractic is awesome! After visiting multiple chiropractors, I can say this is the best! This is also the best my back has felt in a long time. They do a great job and I would recommend anyone with back or neck trouble to give them a try.

I was referred to Dr. Erlandson by my wife and my daughter. They have both had wonderfull results and continue to go to him for help with neck and back problems. Dr Erlandson examined me and said I wasn't in need of his services, which says a lot for his integrity.
