Sciatica Treatment

, ,

Sciatica Treatment in Atlanta GASciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain, numbness, or weakness that are caused by an underlying medical condition. The pain and uncomfortable sensations originate in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. Rarely does sciatica occur in both legs, but it is typical to have pain in only one side of the buttock or leg. Sciatic pain can be infrequent and irritating to constant and debilitating; it can also be triggered through weight gain, such as during pregnancy. While symptoms can be painful and can last for varying lengths of time, rarely does permanent sciatic nerve damage result. For those with sciatica, Sovereign Rehabilitation offers sciatica treatment to help patients achieve long-term pain relief and increased quality of life.

The shoulder is prone to slipping out of place because of its incredible mobility. The arm can move in more directions than any other joint system in the body; because of this flexibility, however, a dislocated shoulder is a common injury.

Pinched Nerve Treatment in Atlanta GANeuritis is the inflammation of nerves within the spine that causes pain and numbness to the areas that the nerves travel to within the body. Nerve roots exit out both sides of the spine column along its entire length. These nerve roots travels to all the different parts of the body. When a nerve in the spine is pinched or inflamed it can radiate pain to areas that are far away from the actual nerve itself. Nerves from the thoracic (middle) spine extend to the upper abdominal area as well as the back, neck, and area between the shoulders. Lumbar nerves extend through the lower back, gluteal muscles, upper thigh, calf, and down into the foot. Pain or numbness can be felt in any of the areas in which the nerves travel. Sciatica is the most common form of pain lumbar neuritis.
