Are you looking for sciatica treatment In San Diego CA?
Sciatica is a painful condition that is caused by a compressed disc pushing on the "sciatic" nerve and irritating it which is termed "sciatica". It is typically a burning, searing, shooting, radiating, intense pain that can be either in the buttocks, hamstrings, front of the thigh, back of the leg, all the way down to the toes or all or a combination of all of these. It is life altering and sucks the energy out of you immediately.
It will not allow your body to function properly, for work, exercise and social events. It can cause people to become addicted to pain medications as well. the traditional treatments for this condition unfortunately rarely resolves the condition and if there is pain relief it is temporary. The traditioanl treatments are:
These treatments do not address the cause of the problem and will not be able to correct most cases of sciatica and only further the patients suffering. That being said, there are certain cases that do require surgery as that is the only option for those patients, however there is many that will get cured without surgery if they do the proper treatment.
Lets look again at the cause of the sciatica pain in the first place. It is due to compression of a spinal disc. Therefore the solution only makes sense to "decompress" the spinal disc which should then solve the problem. This is why we specialize is something called Spinal Decompression or NSSD, Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. This is a highly effective treatment that is designed to gently distract the vertebrae apart thus allowing the disc to be decompressed, the pressure to come off the nerve and the pain to be alleviated. During this process the spinal discs are able to once again get oxygen, water and nutrients in order to heal as it was not when it was in the compressed state prior to the decompression therapy.
This treatment is researched by Johns Hopkins, Stanford University and Mayo clinic to be highly effective and is a comfortable and gentle treatment that feels great.
