Sciatica

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica can be a pain in the rear!… Literally! When a bulging or herniated disc puts damaging pressure on the sciatic nerve the pain can be unbearable! The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body and travels from the center buttock directly down the back of the thigh all the way to the foot.  At first, many people believe they have injured a muscle in the lower back or leg as the sciatic nerve is in close proximity to these muscles.

Typically this pain is either on one side or the other and is worse with activity. Unfortunately, most of the treatments for this condition simply focus to mask the symptoms but very few are aimed at addressing the actual cause of the condition…. the herniated disc.
With the DRX-9000, we are able to specifically target the particular disc that is causing the pain and create a negative pressure within the disc and “un-bulge” or “un-herniate” these problematic discs. This can be easily diagnosed via an MRI to determine if you are a good candidate for spinal decompression. Sciatic sufferers LOVE us!

Symptoms of Sciatic Pain

Sciatic pain can be intense, and your lower back can take a major beating. It’s important to recognize sciatic pain so that you can quickly begin treating the condition. The most common symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Sudden, severe pain in your low back or leg
  • Muscle weakness in your leg
  • Numbness or tingling in your leg
  • Pain lessens when you lay down
  • Pain around the mid-buttock area
  • Pins and needles sensation in the leg
  • Pain when bending
  • Trouble controlling your bowels or bladder

Sciatic Pain Needs to be Treated Properly with the DRX-9000 Spinal Decompression Tool

With majority of sciatic pain, a herniated disc is compressing the peripheral nerve root causing pain down the leg.  Time is very important to not cause permanent long term nerve damage.

Many of our patients have already tried treatments such as physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, OTC medications, pain management, epidural injections, rhizotmies, and nearly 50% of our patients have already had one spine surgery and are trying to avoid a second one.  All of these therapies are great treatments for for various problems.
The disc is not a muscle and needs specific treatment to ever have a chance of getting well.  Just like a broken leg should not have surgery until its had a chance to get well with a cast, a herniated disc causing sciatic pain should have a chance to get well with Spinal Decompression using the DRX-9000.
If you have been diagnosed with a sciatica and are tired of the pain that comes along with it please call our office and make an appointment so we can sit down and go over your case one on one.  Let us see if we can help you too!
