Slipped Disc

Hello folks! I am, Dr. Matt Shepard, the number one chiropractor in Bloomington, IL for sport related injuries and repetitive motion injuries. There is not a day, when seeing patients, that I don’t treat someone with a slipped disc. A slipped disc can occur when lifting, bending forward and turning, or a myriad of other lifting/bending causes of injuries. Not only can a slipped disc cause pain, tingling and numbness, it can affect your sleep and other functions as well. Instead of allowing a slipped disc cause you pain and other problems, it is important to get the help that you need right away. There are far too many activities in Bloomington to enjoy, and you will not be able to enjoy them if you are dealing with the problems caused by your slipped disc. Traditional medicine may not work out very well for you in all cases, and you may find yourself having surgery after medications have stop working. I want to help everyone in the Bloomington area to live comfortably. With careful manipulation and soft tissue massage, I can help restore some of the flexibility and range of movement in your back as well as relieving some of the pain that you are feeling. When traditional medicines and treatments have failed you, come see me, Dr. Shepard at my Bloomington office for treatment. Of course, you will also have your own work to do, with special exercises that you will be encouraged to do at home. After a few treatments at my office located at 2309 E. Empire St. #400 , 61704, in addition to the exercises you are doing, you will be feel much better. I look forward to seeing you at my Bloomington office. Make an appointment today so that you can get back to feeling good as quickly as possible. The office is conveniently located at 2309 E. Empire St. #400 , 61704, and is open at hours that can serve you well. Schedule an appointment with me, Dr. Shepard, today, here is my contact number (309) 585-0382 .

Pain in the Butt or Leg? – Try a Sciatic Nerve Floss

Sciatica or leg pain is caused by the is irritation usually usually due to cumulative injury to the nerve over time. The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body (about the width of your thumb), it travels down the back of each thigh, calf, and foot. The nerve splits into two nerves behind the knee. The sciatic nerve starts from the lower spine on either side and travels deep in the pelvis to the lower buttocks before going down the back of the leg. Half the nerve (Fibular portion) supplies the muscles on the outside portion of the leg and top of the foot. The other half (tibial portion) supplies the muscles of the calf and bottom of the foot. Sciatica is typically described as pain that shoots down the back of one thigh or localized in the buttock region. Sciatica pain can be burning, tingling, or numbness on one side of the leg. It may also be pain present on one side of the buttocks that worsens when sitting for a long time. Sciatic Nerve Floss in the video below can be used to reduce the irritation of the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve will be utilized to treat the sciatic nerve. Nerve Flosses are used to break the nerve free from adhesions or irritation over time that have caused the nerve to stick to the structures (like muscles, tendons, or ligaments) around the nerve and reduce the mobility of the nerve.
