A definition of sciatica
A new sciatic treatment has recently been discovered for fast relief of sciatica.
Sciatica is defined by pain in the lower back and buttocks and it often radiates down the legs going as far as the feet in some instances.
It is important to note, that it is the radiating of pain below the knee that differentiates sciatica from ordinary back pain.
In fact, it is named sciatica because it is caused by compression or injury of the sciatic nerve, which is found in the lumbar region of the spine.
Sciatica and sciatic pain is synonymous and can consist of anything from dull to sharp pain along with sensations of burning, tingling and numbness.
Sciatic pain can be on and off or it can be there all the time. Sciatic treatment is aimed at stopping the pain and ideally, preventing it from returning.
Traditional treatments for your sciatica
The traditional sciatic treatment has always consisted of…
- unique exercises
- bed rest
- non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or narcotics like codeine.
In the more extreme cases cortisone injections into the spine or surgery is performed. These are extremes in sciatic treatment.
For most people, ibuprofen and bed rest is not enough but surgery is too much. Some of the newer treatments offer a good middle ground.

Can massage help…
Yes, massage is a well known and doctor approved form of physical therapy that offers a quick and effective sciatic treatment.
Actually, massage has led to the discovery of a new sciatic treatment known as spinal decompression. Spinal decompression is performed by a physical therapist or chiropractor with a specialized traction machine.
The traction machine uses computerized motors to apply force to the spine that decompresses the spinal discs. The negative pressure created in the discs pulls herniated discs away from the sciatic nerve while increasing blood flow and nutrient availability to the area.
Pain free treatment:
With the new computerized spinal decompression systems, pain during sciatic treatment is a thing of the past as the computers adjust the motors with each response of the body. Therefore, treatment is performed while the muscles are constantly relaxed for maximum effectiveness.
The success of spinal decompression hovers between the 80 to 90 percent range. It will not work for everyone, but 80-90 percent is one of the highest success rates of any sciatic treatment. Talk to your doctor or chiropractor about spinal decompression today.
