People with shooting pain can sometimes experience radiating pain down the leg and into the foot and toes, and other times a dull ache or numbness. Shooting pain is caused by many things. Sitting at a desk for long periods of time in one position can exacerbate the pain. Exercise can make the pain worse. Tennis or golf and other twisting activities can cause pain to flare up. Sometimes, the shooting pain may be in both legs, or may alternate from one leg to the other.
Medical doctors normally treat this condition by loading patient up on pain killers, telling the patient that the condition may go away naturally. This seldom happens, and the net result is that the patient's liver, kidney, or stomach lining, are damaged by the long-term use of drugs. The better approach is the chiropractic one.
However, Dr. Ruja will treat your sciatica by finding the location of nerve irritation, and can relieve the pressure on the nerve, allowing the body to heal itself naturally.
