Sciatica Therapy Options in Charlotte, NC

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Sciatica

Sciatica is simply a pain that runs from the lower back down the leg, often into the foot and toes. It is brought on by an irritation of the sciatic nerve triggered by a compression.

Some people struggling with sciatica also may experience a burning, tickling or prickly sensation, usually on one side of the body. The type and level of pain a person experiences depends upon the site of the nerve compression.

In certain cases the pain can be very moderate, while in others it can be debilitating and extreme. The majority of people will recover from an episode of sciatica within a few weeks, the pain can sometime worsen over time or persist for much longer. Everything depends on the underlying root cause.

Sciatica and also Nerve Destruction.

Even though it is rare, in some instances sciatica can lead to irreversible nerve damage. The irritation of the nerve that induces the sciatica pain generally is reversible.

Symptoms of a more dangerous medical issue include bladder or bowl incontinence, growing weakness, or the loss of sensation in the leg.

Where Exactly the Sciatic Nerve is Found:

Sciatic nerves are the longest in the body. They stretch out from the lower back completely down to the toes.

Sciatic nerves leave the spine between two 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 triggered by the irritation of one or both of these nerves. Usually, a herniated disc applies pressure on the sciatic nerve root.

In many cases, people suffering from sciatica have leg pain, which makes them mistakenly think that the sciatica is caused by some sort of problem within the leg.

Other root causes of sciatica can include spinal tumors, , trauma, spinal stenosis, or injury.

Anyone Can Have Sciatica.

People think that sciatica is something that just effects people who have an inactive lifestyle. And while it’s correct that sedentary people are more susceptible to get sciatica, it in reality can affect active people also, especially if they participate in activities that involve twisting the back or carrying heavy weights frequently.

Sciatica will typically 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 suggested.

Sciatica Therapy Solutions.

Another more natural sciatica treatment option is , non-surgical spinal decompression treatment. By gently decompressing the involved spinal disks pressure on the sciatic nerve can be relieved and the pain from sciatica can disappear.

It's always a great experience whenever I visit ProHealth and Wellness. Tracy, Tiffany, and John are always pleasant to work with. Dr. Clare and his team have helped me open up a compressed disc in my back that was pinching a nerve and causing leg pain, and he continues to relieve pain everytime I come in for an adjustment. Wouldn't recommend anyone else.

I have been a patient at ProHealth and Wellness for about 15 years. I keep coming because Dr. Clare and all of his support staff are always so pleasant and, I believe, genuinely concerned with my well-being.

I have been to many Chiropractors and Health Spas with minimal relief. Once I started coming to ProHealth & Wellness I found them to have more of a one on one approach. You are not simply a number and they do not use a "cookie cutter" approach where everyone gets the same process every visit. They tweak each visit to help with what my aging body is doing. Give them a try and see what I mean!!

I have been going to Thomas for years - I’m happy he found his new home at prohealth and wellness. He’s very professional, he listens to your concerns about what is bothering you and by the time you walk out, you are feeling tremendously better. There is a reason why I keep coming back. He is the best!

Dr. Clare and staff are the BEST! By coming in for regular care, I am able to continue doing the things I love. I think of my adjustments as the same thing I do when I go to dentist for cleanings every 6 months and oil changes for my car. You won’t be disappointed, I promise.
