Sciatica in Amarillo, Tx
Patients often describe sciatic pain as a range of slight discomfort to extreme and unbearable. Sciatic pain can manifest in different areas of the legs and feet and has a tendency to come and go. As years progress, people tend to go through sciatica flare ups that intensify over time as the problem goes largely unchecked.

Dr. Kaci Roach will be able to work with you to improve the positioning of your spine and discs to help alleviate some of the worst of the pain.

Most spinal problems don’t just happen overnight, but build up gradually as a number of small, but related injuries.
