- Stinging or burning pain that goes from the lower back to the upper thighs; sometimes including numbness
- Muscle spasms or tightness in lower back, pelvis, and hips
- Pain that worsens during prolonged sitting or standing
- Difficulty walking or standing up straight
During your first visit with Dr. Semente, he will provide an evaluation, asking you questions about your pain, when it started, and if you have suffered any injuries. He will also do a physical examination of your back, to look at your spinal structure, your muscles, your nerves, and he might perform an x-ray if necessary. Afterwards or in the next follow-up visit, he will go over what chiropractic treatment is right to best treat the problem at hand.
