Pinched Nerve Treatment in League City, TX

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

A pinched nerve in your back can cause severe pain the runs from your lower back and down the back of one leg running from the buttock down the back of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may begin abruptly or gradually. Usually, it is characterized by sharp, shooting pain that feels a lot like an electrical shock. Moving the leg, back or other part of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often intensive this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be distributed uniformly along the leg, but there often are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often accompanied by numbness or a tingling sensation along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which run from the lower back and down the back of both legs.

Causes of a Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve may result from a process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure can be caused by a variety of factors, including a ruptured intervertebral disc, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (known as spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by in infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and largest in the body, measuring three-quarters of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the network of nerves located in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its branches are what allow movement and feeling –or motor and sensory functions – in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is compressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these pathways. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can spread or radiate to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be caused by a bulging or herniated disk, degenerative disk disease, piriformis syndrome, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by trauma.

Any of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other related nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that causes your pain and other symptoms.

I've been here several times for chiropractic treatment and massage. Both services are great. Dr. Vazquez taylors treatment specifically to your needs. Adjustments are never painful but are always effective. He utilizes additional therapies to increase healing. The massages are best I've had. If you're looking for a massage that provides actual relief, this is it. They are familiar with muscle anatomy and understand how to apply massage pressure to release pain and tightness. Everyone here from the techs who deliver the additional therapies, massage techs, the front desk, the Dr. himself are all a great team. From the moment you are greeted at the front door through the time of treatment, everyone is polite and professional. The facility itself is clean and very nice. Whether your pain is from an injury or just stress of life, I recommend giving them a try!

When I first moved to Texas I didn’t think I would find a chiropractor with the same level of knowledge as the one that I had in my home State. When I needed a chiropractor I found his place driving by and I decided to stop in. The first few visits, I didn’t let him touch my neck. I was scared because my previous doctor had finally fixed my neck after years of pain management. But as Dr Vazquez slowly gained my confidence I was able to let him treat me with no restrictions. Then I hurt my lower back and needed to go a specialist do the MRI and take oral cortisone, pain medication, muscle relaxant and finally a shot of cortisone in my spine. Dr. Vazquez, my chiropractor, started a stretch table treatment, laser and shockwave - that saved me. I still carry my cortisone pills, just in case, but I am living my life normally, of course a little bit more aware of my condition but no more Aleve, cortisone shots etc.. I can say that Dr Vasquez brought back my freedom to go anywhere I want. I do recommend him to all those out there who are in pain with a pinched nerve, sciatica, back pain etc.

Very professional and helpful. When I felt unheard by other physicians Dr Vasquez eased my concerns by explaining and educating me about the body’s anatomy. And that I wasn’t going crazy nor making things up. Shoot! I’m in pain! I was hopeless and giving up. Until I went to his office. He and his team were so helpful. It started at the entrance. The lady at the desk was kind and welcoming. I have to trust the process if I want to get back to my lifestyle of exercising, running, walking, working, etc. And I’m grateful to have a husband, a friend and concerned life partner who did the steps I couldn’t to find Dr. V! I appreciate Dr Vasquez’s honesty as well as his kind words. The bedside manner Dr. Vasquez and his team have are phenomenal! You ladies rock! Let’s keep thriving towards getting me back on both feet, balanced and feeling whole again!!!! Jeremiah 29:11

Keeps my back in shape to avoid missing work and the fun stuff in life. Update; I was a skeptic of acupuncture but it does help. Since I've tried it I have noticed an improvement in my overall health and well being.
