When You’re Tired of “Wait and See”

We have great success at helping people with sciatica.

  • Do you have pain down the back of your leg?
  • Have you tried to solve the problem, with no results?
  • Are you ready to take action and get professional help?


Are you experiencing sciatic pain that slows you down and limits your abilities? Does it make sense to you that you don’t have to accept sciatica as something you need to live with? Both sides of your body are the same age, so why is only one side hurting? Neurospinal dysfunction can lead to sciatic pain, low back pain, and restless leg symptoms. We focus on correcting neurospinal dysfunction by getting to the root cause of the problem. We use neurologically-based methods to restore your natural function and get you back to doing what you love to do!

The Sciatic Nerve and Postural Control

The sciatic nerve is a large nerve that arises from the low back and pelvis. Nerve roots from multiple levels of the spine combine to form a single nerve that is over half an inch wide. The sciatic nerve travels through the buttock region, down the back of the thigh, and into the calf. It powers leg muscles and provides skin sensation. Proper sciatic nerve function is needed for balance and coordination. Neurospinal dysfunction at any level, from the upper neck to the tailbone, can compromise sciatic nerve function. Your body is designed to attempt to correct neurospinal problems by altering biomechanics as best it can. Your body’s priority is to keep you upright and moving. Unfortunately, patterns of compensation often cause painful issues like sciatica. Fortunately, there is a solution to support neurospinal health and address sciatic pain naturally.

Anyone with a basic understanding of anatomy will agree that nervous system function is one of the foundations of good health. Doctors of chiropractic offer a drugless, nonsurgical approach for people with sciatica and leg pain that focuses on correcting the underlying imbalance. Our Eagan chiropractor’s services are intended to restore proper nervous system function, so several body functions may change at the same time. It is truly inspiring to see patients get their health and their life back under control, and increase their ability to enjoy life.

“I started treatment at Vital Life Chiropractic hoping for relief from tension and migraine headaches. I also had daily heartburn and moderate to severe arthritis pain in my hands as well as soreness from an old ankle injury. After two adjustments, the heartburn occurrences were down to one or two a week. After 12 sessions, the heartburn is down to a couple times a month.”

“Before care, Lauren had back pain (due to 8 years of gymnastics), neck pain, and rumination, which is an in-voluntary reflux. Within 1 week, Lauren was improving. Her posture changed, back pain and neck pain subsided. Since the beginning of her wellness care with Dr. Barb, Lauren has no back or neck pain and her rumination is 50-70% better. We have spent thousands of dollars and have seen doctors from U of M, Children’s Hospital and Mayo Clinic without a cure for rumination. The wellness care has given Lauren a new lease on life, and she sleeps and feels 100% better. Thank you, Dr. Barb!”

“The acid reflux was constant. Everything I ate gave me acid reflux. I had constant burning in my throat and the pressure of anything touching the throat area bothered me. I was taking Prilosec daily on waking and Tums as needed. If these were skipped I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Since getting adjusted, I have increased mental clarity and am not “in a fog” anymore. I sleep better, with about 1 hour less sleep. I have more energy as well. I stopped taking Prilosec and Tums about 3 weeks after starting the supplements Dr. Barb recommended. Dr. Barb actually takes the time to listen to you and a person never feels rushed. I am feeling so much better, and being able to eat so much more of a variety of foods is wonderful.”
