Each year, sixty five million Americans suffer from sciatica or sciatic nerve pain, and that ranks second only to migraines as the most frequent cause of pain. Furthermore, eighty percent of adults will experience significant low back pain sometime during their life. Second to the common cold, problems caused by sciatica and sciatica nerve pain are the most frequent cause of lost workdays in adults under the age of forty-five. The lower lumbar area of the back (where the sciatic nerve originates) bears more weight and stress than other areas of the spine and is therefore susceptible to injury. However, sciatica or sciatic nerve pain is not a disorder in itself, but rather a symptom of a pressure being put on your nerve root. Some of the leading causes of sciatic nerve compression include bulging or herniated discs, lumbar spinal stenosiss, spondylolisthesis, trauma, piriformis syndrome, and bone spurs. The good news is that approximately 90% of patients who experience sciatica and sciatica nerve pain and follow a conservative, non-surgical treatment plan can fully recover and live pain free. Our Sciatica Pain Relief Program was started 10 years ago to give patients a conservative approach in addressing their pain; but more importantly an approach that achieved results.
