Sciatica- A pain you don’t have to live with!

Sciatica PainThere are many times, when I am crossing the parking lot of a store and I observe people walking with pain or discomfort.  I see them walking with a limp, walking slowly, holding a shopping cart and wincing because of the severe pain they are experiencing.  I often think about speaking with them to let them know that there are options for them to get better. I want to give them my business card and say, “We can help.”
A common pain that many people suffer from is sciatica or a pinched sciatic nerve.  It usually starts in the back as a minor pain and will eventually move all the way down your leg as the pain progresses. This is one of those pains that can get worse as it starts to travel and make its way down your leg.  The pain can be so intense, it can bring you to your knees.  When the nerve becomes really irritated, it begins to bother you while sitting or standing and can also be so painful that it keeps you up at night.  Most times. you can wiggle around until you find a position that isn’t as uncomfortable and the sciatica pain will ease. After a certain point, the pain you feel from the pinched sciatic nerve can seem like no position is a good position.  I hear people chalk it up to getting older but I am here to tell you “don’t buy into that!”
Our structural bodywork work treatment, which uses a combination of several techniques including deep tissue massage, applied kinesiology and CranialStructural Integration Therapy, addresses the cranialstructural (head and skeletal system) imbalances and tight muscles, allowing the bones to release bringing the pelvis back into balance and relieving the irritation of the sciatic nerve.
Surgical Alternative has been rehabilitating clients in severe pain from herniated discs, bulging discs, degenerative disk disease, serve lower back and shoulder pains, nerve entrapments, pinched sciatic nerve issues and many other symptoms that people think they either have to have surgery for or just deal with the pain.  Our main goal, is to educate people about options to just managing pain.
