Sciatica? DRX9000 Lumbar Spinal Decompression May Be The Answer

San Francisco Chiropractor and Herniated Disc Doctor Comments:

Images1 The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body. The nerve roots that exit the lumbar spine to form the sciatic nerve are very sensitive. Even the weight of a pencil erasure can irritate them and cause pain that travels down into the buttocks or leg.

In fact... sciatica is pain in the buttocks or leg ( radicular pain ) from irritation of the sciatic nerve.

So, how does the sciatic nerve become irritated?   

Well, this can happen several different ways, here are most of them:

1. A Herniated Lumbar Disc ( most common cause of sciatica ).

2. Spinal Stenosis or Foraminal Stenosis.

3. Vertebral Subluxation.

4. Degenerative Disc Disease (DDD).

5. Piriformis Syndrome.

6. Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction.

7. Spondylolisthesis.

8. Trauma (auto accident, skiing injury, sports, etc)

There are a few other causes...but this list covers most of them. The big question here is what can be done to get rid of the symptoms?  At least that's what my patients want to know.
