Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Sciatica Pain

Sciatica is a pain that runs from the lower back down the leg, often into the foot and toes. It is triggered by an inflammation of the sciatic nerve triggered by a compression.

Some people suffering from sciatica also may experience a burning, tickling or prickly sensation, typically on one side of the body. The type and amount of pain a person experiences depends upon the site of the nerve compression.

In certain cases the pain might be very mild, while in others it may be intense and debilitating. The majority of people will recover from an episode of sciatica within a few weeks, the pain can sometime worsen over time or persist for much longer. Everything depends upon the underlying source.

Sciatica plus Nerve Damage.

Though it is rare, in some instances sciatica can lead to irreversible nerve damage. But the irritation of the nerve that causes the sciatica pain generally is reversible.

Symptoms of a more critical medical problem include bladder or bowl incontinence, growing weakness, or the loss of sensation in the leg.

Exactly Where the Sciatic Nerve is Found:

Sciatic nerves are the longest in the body. They reach out from the lower back all the way down to the toes of the feet.

Sciatic nerves leave the spine between two vertebrae in the lower back and travel behind the hip joint down the buttock and along the back of each leg into the foot.

Sciatica is caused by the irritation of one or both of these nerves. Typically, a herniated disk places pressure on the sciatic nerve root.

In many cases, people experiencing sciatica have leg pain, which makes them incorrectly think that the sciatica is due to some sort of problem within the leg.

Other sources of sciatica can include spinal tumors, , trauma, spinal stenosis, or injury.

Anybody Can Have Sciatica.

Many people believe that sciatica is something that only effects people who have a sedentary lifestyle. And while it’s correct that sedentary people are more susceptible to get sciatica, it in fact can affect active people too, particularly if they participate in activities that involve twisting the back or carrying heavy loads frequently.

Most of the times, sciatica will resolve itself within a few weeks. Treatment options include exercise, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. For some patients, however, the pain can last much longer, so individualized treatment plans are recommended.

Sciatica Treatment Options.

Another more natural sciatica therapy option is , non-surgical spinal decompression treatment. By naturally decompressing the involved spinal discs pressure on the sciatic nerve can be eased and the pain from sciatica can go away.

Left worse then when I entered. First visit in extreme pain, unable to stand or sit normally. Was adjusted and pain... increased to the point I required an ice treatment just so I could leave. MRI ordered same day, the MRI facility instructed me to return when pain free. After two weeks of medication and bed rest, scheduled 2nd visit for adjustment. Adjstment was refused. Why? Because of my level of pain. Charged full visit. They adjusted me when in debiliating pain without MRI (1st visit) but would not without MRI with constant ache level pain(2nd visit). Looking for another chiropractor Pain reduced to a constant ache and I regained full mobility. I was told they would not adjust me until MRI completed.read more

For almost a year, I've gone to this Chiropractic Center for neck and back pain. During my last and final service, my... unmasked provider coughed near me in the small, enclosed room. I immediately opened my eyes and pulled away from the provider and blurted out, "Did you just cough on me?" Then I heard, "if you are uncomfortable, you can leave." This was repeated to me several times. I asked the provider for a moment. I felt so bad, because of how upset I thought the provider was, that I apologized and continued the service. Now it's a week later and I have a sore throat and a cough.read more
