The Sciatic Nerve runs from the lower back down the leg of one leg, often into the foot and toes. If it is irritated or compressed it can cause severe pain running down the leg. Pain can be just in the gluteal area or in the calf and foot as well as running down the whole leg.
Sciatic pain as described by the people who experience it in many different ways. Some people have a burning sensation that extends the entire length of their legs while other people“knot” in their buttocks, some people just experience pain in their lower leg and foot. .Many people cannot sit or stand in one place at all due to the pain.
This pain ranges from the most severe pain in her have not life, T just a annoying constant irritation. In either case it means that the nerve is getting damaged by pressure being placed on it, usually from the disc or surrounding inflammation of muscle tissue. If you’ve ever experienced sciatic pain you know how debilitating it can be.
Sciatica and Nerve Damage
Although it is rare, in some instances sciatica can result in permanent nerve damage. But the irritation of the nerve that causes the sciatica pain usually is reversible. That is why it is so important to seek Sciatic Pain Treatment as soon as possible.
Symptoms of a more serious medical problem include bladder or bowl incontinence, growing weakness, or the loss of sensation in the leg.
Where the Sciatic Nerve is Located:
Sciatic nerves are the longest in the body, it extend from the lower back down to the toes.
Sciatic nerves roots exit the spine between the lower lumbar vertebrae in the lower back and travel behind the hip joint down the buttock and along the back of each leg into the foot.
Sciatica is caused by the irritation of one or all of these nerves. Typically, a herniated disc applies pressure on the sciatic nerve root. Many people find that going to the doctor and getting muscle relaxers and pain killers and anti-inflammatories rarely solved the problem. And while physical therapy teamwork on some cases, many times it doesn’t get to the problem and simply only irritates that condition. So what’s the right treatment for sciatic pain? That depends.
To address and correct the problem, we must first find out what exactly is the cause.

Anybody Can Have Sciatica
Many people believe that sciatica is something that only effects people who have a sedentary lifestyle.And while it’s true that sedentary people are more at risk for sciatica, it actually can affect active people as well, especially if they participate in activities that involve twisting the back or carrying heavy loads frequently.
In most cases, sciatica will resolve itself within a few weeks. Treatment options include exercise, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. For some patients, however, the pain can last much longer, so individualized treatment plans are recommended.
Sciatica Pain Treatment Options
One of the less invasive sciatica pain treatment options is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our non-surgical spinal decompression device, The DRX 9000 is focused specifically on the bone above and below the disc in your spine that is unhealthy. The device pulls up on the bone above and down on the bone from below the disc. Effectively separating them and creating a negative pressure inside the disc. This creates a vacuum effect which draws water and all those essential nutrients into the disc.
All this is done without drugs, injections, or surgery!
The best part of all is that it’s painless and the only side effect besides a little soreness is that the disc gets rehydrated, and you get better.
What does all that remind you of, hopefully you thought of a pump. The decompression Machine is designed to re-create the pump mechanism that is failed within the disc, thereby allowing for water, oxygen, and all those nutrients to be pulled back inside the disc to allow the disc to heal and repair.
So we’re not only trying to fix the disc itself, but it also fix the broken pump mechanism. When the pump works, you increase the circulation to the disc, when you increases circulation to the disk this allows it to heal and repair
