ER doctors say that sciatica is one of the most common things they encounter each year in Mountain Home. Millions of people in America will suffer with the pain of sciatica, and many never achieve a long term solution. Their problem continues to worsen because they have not received the correct treatment. This article from Doctor Joseph Long will help you to understand the ins and outs of this problem and what you can do to overcome it.
Many people wonder what sciatica feels like? Patients describe the pain of sciatica as a slight discomfort to the most extreme unbearable pain. Sciatic pain can show up in many different areas of the leg and foot, and many times the pain will come and go. Over years of time people tend to go through periods of pain that typically intensify as the problem goes unchecked.
The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the areas that a sciatic issue will start from. This area of the spine is very complicated and it can be difficult to locate the problem. Doctor Garda will be able to work with you to zero in on the source. From there he will need to work with you over time to improve the position of the spine and discs.
Some people say that all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper, and that is when their pain started. They don't understand how an easy task caused them so much pain. The reality is that their condition was probably developing over years of time. That piece of paper just happened to be the last straw. Most spinal problems don't happen overnight. Over years of time they will build up.
Treatment length can vary significantly from person to person. Some people respond very fast while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of the disc or the joints that the chiropractor has to correct. One thing usually holds true. The longer that you let the problem get worse, the longer it will take to correct it. Be proactive. When you get started with care, you'll be surprised to know that it takes less time to fix the problem than it did to create it.
In the US the amount of people that end up with back surgery is staggering, and the low success rate is disappointing. It's estimated that back surgery is only about 15% effective within a five year period of time. That's simply not good enough for you.
