Characterized by radiating pain that travels from the buttock or hip region down the leg, along the course of the sciatic nerve, sciatica pain ranges from mild tingling or a sense that one’s leg is asleep to a shooting, burning sensation. A number of causes are linked to sciatica. The causes can range from herniated discs to spinal stenosis, a pinched nerve, piriformis syndrome, osteoarthritis, pregnancy or a blood clot. Whatever the case, the root cause of sciatica typically differs from person to person, necessitating a full assessment to examine medical or spinal function causes.

With an emphasis on physical and mental well-being, as well as patient education, Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness performs a comprehensive examination for patients with symptoms of sciatica. This helps identify causes that are not easily apparent, such as poor movement and functionality. In turn, more effective treatment can take place, including tailored services to help patients achieve the level of wellness they deserve. Combined services may incorporate the following:

IDD Therapy for Sciatica

Given the many symptoms associated with sciatica, patients might assume that they are dealing with something else altogether. Yet, the bottom line is that sciatica stems from compression of the sciatic nerve. This warrants treatment of the primary cause of the compression. Thus, as a multidisciplinary protocol involving a disc therapy approach, IDD Therapy (Intervertebral Differential Dynamics Therapy) is capable of reducing disc compression at specific segments of the spine. This restores oxygen flow to the disc and releases surrounding muscle tissues that have become rigid.

With specialized SPINA System equipment, those experiencing shooting pain, tingling or numbness usually experience tremendous relief from the painful effects of sciatica by the third session. What’s more is that SPINA System IDD Therapy is a non-surgical approach that is administered in a comfortable, relaxing manner. In fact, each session is a gradual procedure in which patients receive treatment followed by short periods of rest. Therefore, while the spine is decompressed, muscles spasms are prevented and patients experience zero pain.

Perhaps you’re dealing with sciatic pain and other symptoms, and you are concerned that surgery may be your only option. The staff at Georgia Spinal Health & Wellness invites you to call today to ask about IDD Therapy.
