Hi, I am Dr. Daniel Pica, your local Chiropractor at Almond Wellness Centre Ringwood Chiropractic Clinic.I graduated from RMIT University with a double bachelor in Health and Applied Science (Chiropractic).
I work with remedial massage therapists and acupuncturists in our clinic. As a team, we have been serving the local community at Ringwood and Melbourne Eastern suburbs for a number of years. We take a comprehensive and holistic approach to health care. I aim to keep you and your family healthy, reduce injury time and improve rehabilitation.
Sciatica pain may be caused by heavy lifting, injuries, or pregnancy. Together with referred pain to tingling sensations down to calf or foot, you may have lower back buttock hip pain. The pain can be severe and debilitating. I am committed to providing personalised treatment plans to suit you individual conditions.
I use a range of techniques to accommodate for all patients and pains, such as:
- Manual Diversified Adjustments
- Drop Piece Adjustments
- Physical Therapeutics
- Soft Tissue Techniques (STT)
I’ve prepared a treatment program for your pain relief and a rehab program to prevent your pain from coming back.
Other than sciatica, I will also be able to help your lower back, disc and other health issues.
Clinic open 6 days per week. Earlier and later appointment available.
Should you have any of the above issues, please call 03 8802 1519 and we look forward to working with you soon.
More about sciatica
What is sciatic nerve and sciatica pain?
The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in your body. It runs from your pelvis, through your hip area and buttocks and down each leg. The sciatic nerve branches into smaller nerves as it travels down the legs providing feeling to your thighs, legs, and feet as well as controlling many of the muscles in your lower legs. The term sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of this nerve.
What’s the nature of sciatica pain?
Those that suffer from sciatica know how painful this condition can be.
The pain is described as dull, achy, sharp, toothache-like, pins and needles or similar to electric shocks.
What causes sciatica?
Sciatica is generally caused by sciatic nerve compression. Disorders known to cause sciatic nerve pain include lumbar spine subluxations or misalignments, herniated, slipped, or bulging discs, pregnancy and childbirth, tumor, and non-spinal disorders such as diabetes, constipation, or sitting on one’s back pocket wallet.
Sciatica pain relief with chiropractic
Chiropractic adjustments help to reduce the nerve irritability responsible for causing inflammation, muscle spasm, pain, and other symptoms related to sciatica.
Adjustments should not be painful.
