• Sciatic Nerve Pain

  • Sciatic Nerve Pain, or Sciatica is a persistent pain felt along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the low back, across the buttock and into the lower leg. Although it is a relatively common form of low back and leg pain, it is actually a symptom rather than a diagnosis of what is irritating the nerve root and causing the pain. Sciatica can develop as a result to general wear and tear as well as injury to the lumbar spine.

    Patients who suffer from sciatica experience pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve pathway, moving from the low back down through the leg and is generally only felt on one side of the body. It can be felt as a mild tingling, aching, burning, pins and needles sensations, or numbness and muscles weakness in the affected leg or foot.

    Sciatic Pain Treatment

    Because sciatica is a symptom, treatment is based on the cause, most commonly a disc condition. Often it can be caused by degeneration of the discs or by a bulge or herniation in the discs. Either of those can be treated by successfully with Spinal Decompression Therapy. When targeted on the discs that are pressing into the nerve roots, relief can often be felt within 1 treatment, although for lasting results a treatment protocol will be put together. Each of these are different and are tailored to your condition and severity.
