Sciatic Pain

Guess what? The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. If you’re reading this, you’ll say, “No kidding.” Big or small, it hurts.

The sciatic nerve is a combination of several levels of nerves that come out of the lumbar spine. It is general term for pain down the leg. When these nerves get inflamed it is excruciating. Because these nerves not only carry pain sensors, they carry hot and cold sensors and can even have different types of pain. It can be deep aching pain, it can be muscle pain or it can even be skin pain. It is all the same thing and depends on which part of the nerve is affected most.

Sciatica can be caused by fixation of the lumber spine, it can be caused by a disk protrusion or muscle tightening in the piriformis. If that is not enough, as we age, the canal the nerve comes out of shrinks and the bone can develop spurs.

My approach. Usually electrical muscle stimulation and ice can immediately reduce pain. I then identify the fixation or dysfunction and start to correct it. I almost always use distraction to open up the space for the nerves. Everyone is different and after seeing thousands of cases, we can put a game plan together to get you better as fast as we can.
