Are you controlled by sciatica pain and overwhelmed by what that means? Does the pain extend from your lower back into your buttocks and down one or both legs? Have epidurals, pain medications or surgery failed to relieve your pain?
There is hope! There is relief! There is CuraLase!
One in 10 Americans suffer with some form of sciatic nerve pain. For some, sciatica is a mild annoyance, and for others it can be totally debilitating. Many people opt for risky surgical procedures that are mostly ineffective, while others try to live with the pain and lose the quality of their life.
Symptoms of Sciatica
- Mild to severe debilitating pain in the buttocks or legs
- Difficulty with walking or other normal activity
- Weakness or numbness in the leg or foot
- Burning or tingling in the leg
- Constant pain on one side of the buttock
- Shooting electrical pain down one or both legs
- CuraLase has an 87% success rate in relieving pain.
- We resolve the pain by targeting the source, not the symptoms.
The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the human body and is as thick as a man’s thumb at its largest point. The sciatic nerve originates in the lower spine, where the nerve roots exit the spinal cord and extend all the way down the back of the legs into the toes. The nerve is made up of a total of five nerve roots that converge to form the sciatic nerve. It is formed on the right and left side of the spine by a combination of the fourth and fifth lumbar nerves and the first three nerves of the sacral spine. Each nerve exits the spine between two vertebral segments and is named for the segment above it.
Causes of Sciatica
Sciatica is a form of peripheral neuropathy (dysfunction of a nerve). This dysfunction occurs when there is injury to or pressure on the sciatic nerve. The irritated nerve roots in the lumbar or lumbosacral spine can originate from many different low back conditions.
- Bulging or herniated discs
- Bone spur
- Lumbar spine stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal in the lower back)
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spondylisthesis (condition in which one vertebrae slips forward over another)
Other factors that may increase your back pain include overweight, lack of exercise, wearing high heels, and sleeping on a soft mattress.
