Sciatica Treatment Plan Options in Winter Park, FL

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Sciatica is simply a pain that runs from the lower back down the leg, often into the foot and toes. It is caused by an irritation of the sciatic nerve brought about by a compression.

Some people dealing with sciatica may experience a burning, tickling or prickly sensation, normally on one side of the body. The type and level of pain a person experiences depends on the site of the nerve compression.

In many instances the pain might be very moderate, while in others it may be devastating and intense. Although the majority of people will recover from an episode of sciatica within a few weeks, the pain can sometime worsen in time or persist for a lot longer. It all depends upon the underlying cause.

Sciatica and also Nerve Damage.

Though it is rare, in some instances sciatica can produce permanent nerve damage. The irritation of the nerve that causes the sciatica pain usually is reversible.

Symptoms of a more critical medical issue include bladder or bowl incontinence, growing weakness, or the loss of sensation in the leg.

Where Exactly the Sciatic Nerve is Situated:

Sciatic nerves are the longest in the body. They extend from the lower back all the way down to the toes of the feet.

Sciatic nerves leave the spine between two vertebrae in the lower back and travel behind the hip joint down the buttocks and along the back of each leg into the feet.

Sciatica is triggered by the irritation of one or both of these nerves. Typically, a herniated disk puts pressure on the sciatic nerve root.

Commonly, people suffering from sciatica have leg pain, which makes them incorrectly think that the sciatica is due to some sort of problem within the leg.

Other causes of sciatica can include spinal tumors, , trauma, spinal stenosis, or sciatic nerve tumor or injury.

Anyone Can Have Sciatica.

People think that sciatica is something that only effects people who have an inactive lifestyle. And while it’s right that sedentary people are more susceptible for sciatica, it in fact can affect active people also, especially if they take part in activities that involve twisting the back or carrying heavy weights frequently.

For the most part, sciatica will resolve itself within a few weeks. Therapy options include exercise, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. For some patients, however, the pain can last much longer, so individualized therapy plans are advised.

Sciatica Therapy Solutions.

Another more natural and less invasive sciatica treatment option is , non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. By gently decompressing the involved spinal discs pressure on the sciatic nerve can be relieved and the pain from sciatica can go away.

I have been coming to deal with "adhesive capsulitis" on my shoulder. The treatment of adjustments, laser and... stimulation has helped tremendously. Almost as importantly, the staff is so positive and nice, it is a treat to visit the office!read more

A friend recommended Dr. Roffler to me. I have been in low back pain for many years. I have been adjusted and... adjusted again only to have the same issue continue. I was informed that I have herniated discs. I am in the process of decompression treatments and although I haven’t yet experienced totally painless days, I have experienced some pain free days. The sun is shining and I have hope. The doctor is knowledgeable and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Definitely recommend this office!read more
