What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is radiating, sometimes excruciating pain associated with the sciatic nerve which usually originates higher along the spinal cord when nerve roots become compressed or damaged from narrowing of the vertebral column or from a slipped disk. It often affects the back, hip, leg, low back and can lead to disc degeneration, Symptoms can include tingling, numbness, or pain, which radiates to the buttocks, legs and feet. It can make it nearly impossible to sit or stand.
Conventional treatments such as pain medications, cortisone, physical therapy, and even chiropractic...often time do nothing to help sciatica.
When a lumbar spinal disc is not functioning properly, pressure builds up inside...as do waste products which are catabolic (tear down) to the disc tissue. The intradiscal pressure can force the canter of the disc...the nucleus, onto nerve tissue...causing inflammation, dysfunction, and leg pain.
Sciatic becomes a viscous cycle...and over time the discs degenerate further as they are unable to receive adequate nutrients and fluid from the bloodstream. And...spinal discs above and below the injured disc become prone to injury....and the same thing starts to happen to them. This is why we often times see multiple levels of disc herniation.
What is the Sciatic Nerve?
The Sciatic nerve is the main nerve traveling down the leg. This nerve starts in the spine and runs down the back of each leg. This nerve controls the muscles of the back of the knee and lower leg and provides sensation to the back of the thigh, part of the lower leg, and the sole of the foot.
What Causes Sciatica?
Slipped Disc, Herniated Disc, Bulged Disc
Degenerative Disc Disease
Pelvic injury or fracture
Often, sciatica is caused by a herniated disk in the spine that presses on the sciatic nerve.
What are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
The following are the most common symptoms of sciatica. However, each individual may experience symptoms differently. Symptoms may include:
Lower back pain that radiates down the buttock and back of one thigh
Pain that extends from the buttock down to the foot
Numbness (in severe cases)
Weakness (in severe cases)
Spinal Decompression uses state of the art technology to apply a distraction force to relieve nerve compression often associated with low back pain and sciatica.
