Sciatica Treatments

for Lower Back & Radiating Leg Pain Relief

Safe and effective, non-surgical relief from sciatica nerve pain


Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Typically, symptoms are felt only on one side of the body. Patients often mistake sciatica for a disorder; however, the term is referring only to the symptoms of a larger problem. Sciatica is commonly caused by a bulging disk, narrowing of the spine, or a bone spur that is compressing part of the nerve. This causes inflammation that can result in numbness or a tingling sensation in the affected leg, and lower back pain. Symptoms of sciatica can worsen after prolonged periods of standing or sitting, making it difficult for many patients who suffer to perform at work comfortably.
