Sciatica

Advanced Health Center SCIATICA

Causes of Sciatic Nerve Pain

The largest nerve in the body is the sciatic nerve. It is about an inch wide and is comprised of multiple spinal nerves.

Sciatica is generally caused by a pressure or irritation on the sciatic nerve or on one of the nerve roots that exit the lumbar spine from the sciatic nerve. Generally, this pressure can be caused in one of two ways and at two different points in the body.

The least common cause is when the piriformis muscle (which the sciatic nerve runs through in about 15% of the population) actually clamps down or puts pressure on the sciatic nerve. It’s similar to stepping on a garden hose when the water is on. The nerve signals are no longer able to travel down the sciatic nerve and shooting pain, numbness, or tingling is the result.

The most common is cause of sciatica is when one, or several of the five lumbar nerve roots are compressed or irritated. These nerve roots exit the spine through holes called intervertevral foramen. The size of the hole or foramen can be greatly reduced when vertebrae become out of place or misaligned when the spine develops arthritis and degeneration, or, when the discs of the spine swell due to inflammation, protrusion, or herniation.

A Patient’s Experience

“The Vax-D has helped me to become nearly pain free from my low back pain and sciatic pain that I have had for many years. I had gone to chiropractors, had acupuncture treatments, and have had several pain shots in the past. None have had as big an effect as the treatment at Advanced Health Center for reducing the pain. At one time I was considering surgery, but am no longer in need of that thanks to the great people at Advanced Health Center.”

"After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I had daily knee pain for 2 years that lasted all day long. It was a sharp pain and getting worse. It made it hard to walk and stand still. It would get worse going up stairs and walking. I tried medications and injections, but finally gave up on that. After the treatments here, my left knee pain is almost completely gone!"

"I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!"

“Before I started the treatment, my feet were on fire, like walking on broken glass and it was affecting my golf game! This had been going on for 5 or 6 years. Golf is my life. I couldn’t play 18 holes, and if I did I couldn’t walk the next day. My feet would swell and I couldn’t put on my shoes. I’m still receiving treatment but the pain has significantly reduced and the swelling is gone! The guys I play golf with noticed I don’t limp as much. I can now play 18 holes of golf and walk the next day!”

"I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!"

"They led me through a program that resulted in my legs and ankles becoming free of pain. Before the end of the treatment routine, an additional wonder was that my knees were free of any pain, also!! A month following my treatment, I still have no pain at all in my legs, ankles, or knees!!"
