Sciatica & NSD Therapy®
Sciatica is Nerve pain sensed through the Sciatic Nerve. It is an inflammatory condition that involves the sciatic nerve. Also, it is a relatively common spinal disorder afflicting millions of people. The pain felt is the result of sciatic nerve root irritation. Irritation of the sciatic nerve occurs with impingement syndromes that impact the spinal cord or spinal nerves. Sciatic nerve impingement occurs by various structures and tissues that connect, form or surrounds the spine or the pelvis such as bone spurs, slipped discs, a disorder of the pelvic joints and spasms of the gluteal muscles. Additionally, symptoms can result from spinal cord or thecal sac compression in the spinal canal. Contrary to the common belief, it can develop from disorders or issues far away from the lower back. Severe canal stenosis in the neck, upper back, and mid back can also cause sciatic nerve pain and symptoms.
A good description of Sciatic Nerve Pain is a feeling of shooting, searing pain (nerve pain) that runs down the legs. In addition to leg pain, some experience numbness, tingling, or burning sensations felt along the course of the sciatic nerve. Most link Sciatica to a disorder that involves the spine. But, yet numerous health conditions also cause a similar pain. Thus, so to recover an accurate diagnosis of root-cause is needed. Accurate diagnosis is not possible unless the clinician examines your condition is deeply familiar with a variety of health-related disorders that could lead to Sciatica. Many physicians, including some spine surgeons, make mistakes of diagnosing symptoms incorrectly. These are those who diagnose patients without even doing an exam. These are those who diagnose spinal conditions without even touching the spine.

Sciatica is a progressive disorder. Meaning, if left alone it will worsen, therefore; it should never be ignored or neglected. Ignoring and procrastination will undoubtedly lead to the worsening of your condition. The goal is to detect all the underlying disorders leading to symptoms. Timely diagnosis-specific sciatica treatment is key to long-term success.
The most common cause of sciatica is a slipped disc. Slipped discs tend to compress cord and nerves. These compressions lead to symptoms and malfunction. The sciatic-like symptoms of a slipped disc in the lumbar spine are a result of either spinal cord compression, spinal nerve compression or a combination of the two. Appropriate diagnostic work-up must be initiated to identify every aspect of a sciatic-like condition.
