Back Pain and Sciatica Brooklyn


Avail physical treatment for back and sciatica pain relief

Back pain and sciatica are the most common complaints that can affect the ability to do everyday activities. While these types of pain are similar, they still have differences. In many cases, It can be difficult to understand whether the pain and discomfort you are experiencing is the result of back pain or sciatica. Back pain can occur in the upper, mid, and lower back. On the other hand, people with sciatica may experience sharp pain in the lower back, buttock, thigh, and leg.
