Sciatica is characterized by severe back pain and a distinct numbness or tingling in the leg. These conditions stem from pressure on the sciatic nerve, which is generally caused by a herniated, protruding, or diseased disc.
Here at Bay Area Disc Centers, Dr. Ferrigno and his team specialize in advanced, non-surgical sciatica treatment options. We have designed a five-step program, known as disc restoration therapy, to heal, hydrate, and protect the affected discs.
All About Sciatica
Sciatica occurs when there is extreme pressure put on the sciatic nerve. This nerve runs through the lower lumbar, where it exits the spine. Sciatica is often a complex issue, a symptom of degenerative disc disease, disc herniation, or disc protrusion. These conditions all cause the spinal discs to gradually retreat and pinch the sciatic nerve.
In advances sciatica cases, patients may experience overwhelming pain, tingling, and numbness within the leg. If you suffer from arthritis, you may experience symptoms similar to that of sciatica.
