Sciatica is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression and/or irritation of one of five nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve itself. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg and foot. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body.
Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low back pain and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms will often be different, depending upon the underlying cause of the symptoms.
While several forms of treatment are available for treating the symptoms of sciatica, very few treatment options have been found to be successful. Conservative forms of treatment such as stretching and massage can be beneficial, but when done without proper understanding of exactly what is causing the problem, can be detrimental. Chiropractic has proven to be a quick, painless and effective treatment, but there is the occasional case that will not be helped through conventional Chiropractic care.

Spinal Decompression is a new computerized treatment that has changed health care and the way people treat chronic low back, leg and neck pain. Through Spinal Decompression, we are able to isolate the segment/disc in the lumabr and cervical spine and correct the problem. Spinal Decompression works by seperating apart the two vertebra involved, creating a negative pressure inside the disc. This allows the disc to help re-hydrate and in cases, retract a bulge or protrusion. MRI studies before and after treatment on the DRX9000 show just this!
The greatest thing about Spinal Decompression is that patients now have a GOOD choice and option in treating chronic and debilitating low back, leg and neck pain. Countless patients have come into our office as a last resort. They are tired of the drugs, they are tired of the run-around by MD’s, and they are not willing to have a surgery that has huge risks and a low success rates.
Spinal Decompression is a safe and conservative option, but most importantly, Spinal Decompression has a success rate of up to 90% for those patients that qualify for treatment. To learn more about Spinal Decompression,check out our sister website, www.RosevilleBackCenter.com
