Reimagine Life Without Sciatica
If you’re feeling back pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg, you are most likely feeling sciatica pain. Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve which includes your back, buttock and your leg. It usually occurs on one side of your body.
Multiple bones make up the spine, and an injury to any single one of the vertebrae can cause problems. If one vertebra is injured, the connecting tissues, ligaments, muscles and even other vertebrae and joints can all be negatively affected. After an injury, the ligaments can become stretched, and the results of this stretching can be severely damaging. Additional movement can increase complications and even wear on the sciatic nerve. Sciatic nerve problems can impede your ability to function and cause problems related to your arms, shoulders, legs, or feet.
We use a variety of different methods to help people suffering from sciatica pain receive the medical treatment and pain management that they require. One method we use is a biological medicine called Sarapin, which is a product that is actually derived from the pitcher plant. This unique treatment stops the pain signals that the sciatic nerve is sending and does not affect any motor control. Most patients have no side effects to Sarapin, and it has been shown to be significantly effective in reducing nerve and muscle pain and inflammation.
