Sciatica, what is the best treatment for it?

Do you have shooting pain or burning pain down the leg? Are you experiencing a tingling or numbness sensation in your leg? Does your pain get worse with prolonged sitting or standing? If you answered “yes” to any of these, then there’s a high likelihood that you have a condition known as Sciatica.

One of the primary causes of Sciatica is restricted motion in spinal joints. When the bones and joints of the spine are not moving well, it will cause nerve root irritation or compression.

When the nerve gets irritated, the pain and other symptoms of Sciatica are produced.

What are the symptoms of Sciatica?

The symptoms of Sciatica are typically felt on only one side of the body, as it is rare that both sides would be affected at the same time. However, in severe cases, a Sciatica condition which is left unaddressed and unattended to over time can affect both sides, alternating from one side to the other. These symptoms include: 

  • Tingling, burning, or shooting pain on one side of the body, starting in the lower back and going down the buttock and leg, sometimes all the way to the foot
  • Pain that gets worse after sitting or standing for long periods of time
  • Pain that gets worse when coughing, sneezing, laughing, or while having a bowel movement
  • Weakness or numbness in the thigh, leg or foot
  • Walking can be painful or difficult

" I would like express my gratitude to you for having helped me tremendously on my road to recovery. When I first came to see you, I was having a constant pain in my back which had been bugging me for more than a year. Two specialists that I consulted recommended that I go for spinal fusion surgery as there are signs of disc degeneration in my spine. I was quite averse to having major surgery and would want to avoid it or at least put it off for as long as possible. I decided to look for alternative forms of treatment to see if anything else would help. I was so glad that I came to see you. After only 12 treatments, I have experienced significant improvement with my back problem. The constant pain is no longer bugging me. Thank you very much." L.H.
" For years I was always told that my back would eventually need surgery because of my bulging discs. I went through many doctors until I found Dr. Inge. She was able to explain my condition to me in terms i could understand, how she could help me, and what i could also do to take better care of myself. I am being treated regularly i feel so much better and i am no longer considering surgery. Thank you Dr. Inge, you are a life-saver." -M. L.
“ Hi Dr. Austin, I would like to let you know that I’m currently in a very fine condition, thanks to the treatments. I have suffered from back pain on and off for quite some time, but I am finally experiencing relief. I do my normal daily activities comfortably and experience no more pain when i rise from my seated position. Looking forward to see you again ” Y.M.
" Hi, I find Dr. Inge a very good doctor. My right hip somehow got out of position and was pinching on a few nerves. I could hardly put any weight on my right leg but after one session, my pain is much lessen. I also like the fact that she does not aggressively sell herself nor promote any products. If you need treatment, do consider using her. Hahaha, telling you this because you are my friend or relative. She is not paying me to advertise for her. Just want to share this in case you need help. " M.S.
“For me, Dr. Inge has delivered on its promise of treating my severe back pain and shoulder pain, in a relatively short period, with long-term positive and permanent results! What is particularly important to me is that the treatment does not involve any drugs or machines. It is not a “too-good-to-be-true” magic pill. Instead, the sessions include effective professional treatment coupled with sound advice on overall wellness tailored to my own needs and lifestyle. I would recommend this to any stressed-out executive who is pressed for time, as the sessions are quick and effective, delivered in a fully professional yet highly personalized manner.” P.C.
