Hi everybody. Dr. Kinney here, your chiropractor for sciatica in Belmar, NJ.
Today, I’m gonna show you one of the techniques I do to help reduce or get rid of sciatica in my patients.
So the sciatic nerve is the nerve that comes from the lower part of the lumbar spine and shoots this big, fat nerve that goes all the way down the leg.
My sciatic patients usually have hip or lower back pain, buttock pain, or pain into the legs, sometimes numbness and tingling into the foot.
So today, I’m gonna show you one of the ways that I adjust the nerves in the lower spine, help take pressure off of the nerves and then allow for the patients to reduce their sciatica.
It’s called a side posture adjustment.

So if you would lie right on your side for me, Chrissy.
So this adjustment is great. What this does is a technique that just helps to get motion in the spine whereby taking pressure off the nerves.
So here we go. That’s where they’re gonna be one way and then we’re gonna go the other way.
That was great. Okay, come on up.
So that’s how we adjust the lumbar spine. It’s called the side posture adjustment.
It looks invasive, but it really isn’t. It doesn’t hurt.
It actually feels really good for patients to get the lower back adjusted like that, taking the pressure off of that sciatic nerve so that you could be pain free and live your life and do what you want to do without any problems whatsoever.
All right, thanks so much.
