The sciatic nerve travels down the legs and into feet. Pressure can be put on this nerve from a herniated or bulging disc, pinched nerve, or slipped disc in the lower spine. This irritation can lead to symptoms that include radiating pain, burning, numbness, and tingling. This debilitating condition affects thousands every year.
Sciatica usually affects individuals between the ages of 30 and 50 years old. This condition develops slowly because of wear on the discs of the lower spine. Rarely does this condition require surgical intervention and the majority of people who experience sciatic pain can find relief with our advanced, non-surgical treatment.
Sciatic symptoms are unique. For some, the pain can be debilitating yet, for others, the pain can come and go, bringing little disruption to the patients’ life. Most commonly the pain is centered on one side of the body, through the lower back and leg. The pain may even reach the foot, in certain instances.
It is important to keep in mind that your sciatic pain may radiate from a bulging, herniated, or pinched disc. A weakened disc can occur from a number of problems and weaknesses.
You goal with treatment should be to minimize your pain by re-hydrating and re-nourishing the discs and nerves to find a more permanent solution to prevent more injuries. At ProMED Pain Rehabilitation Institute, our comprehensive non-surgical treatment can be very effective in treating your pain and preventing it from coming back.
It is important to remember that there are certain symptoms that may indicate a medical emergency. If the weakness in your leg gets worse, or if you experience bladder and/or bowel weakness of incontinence, this may be a symptom of cauda equine syndrome, a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention.
Your primary doctor may prescribe different therapies depending on the cause of your pain. Many times stretching, icing, and resting can make the inflammation to go down on its own. Pain that persists longer than a week can be helped by our non-surgical treatment protocol. This cutting-edge, computerized treatment successfully treats patients without the use of surgery, shots or medications.
