Chandler Pain Clinic provides gentle treatments for issues affecting muscles, tendons, bones, and other tissues. Our goal is to help our patients with comprehensive and gentle care to alleviate their pain and address the root of their problems.

The diagnosis may require one or more types of medical imagery, such as x-ray and CT scans.
Our experienced sciatica specialists in Chandler, AZ, use chiropractic methods, massage therapy, and Active Release Techniques (ART), to treat a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, including nerve pain caused by sciatica. Sciatica is a radiating pain along the sciatic nerve, usually only on one side of the body. The sciatic nerve begins at your lower back and continues through your hip and down the leg.
What Are the Causes and Symptoms of Sciatica?
Sciatica is the pinching of the sciatic nerve. This may be caused by a herniated disc in your spine, the development of a bone spur on a vertebra, or a chronic medical condition.
There are risk factors for sciatica, including:
- A sedentary lifestyle
- A job that involves heavy lifting or prolonged sitting
Pain caused by sciatica radiates from your lower back to the front or the back of your leg (thigh or calf) and possibly your foot. The affected leg generally feels heavier, and symptoms can also involve numbness or muscle weakness. It is possible to experience burning pain in one part of the leg and numbness in another part. The pain level varies from mild to sharp.
Sciatica pain may be worse when:
- Trying to stand up
- Twisting the spine
