Suffering From Sciatica?

Emergency room doctors say that sciatica is one of the most common things they encounter each year in Lexington, KY. While there are large numbers of people that have this issue, many never achieve a long term solution. Their sciatic pain continues to worsen because they have not received the correct treatment. This article from LifeStyle Chiropractic will help you to understand the ins and outs of this condition, and what you can do to overcome it.

Patients at LifeStyle Chiropractic have described sciatic pain in  various ways. From a slight discomfort in their buttock or leg, to intolerable hip or leg pain and numbness. Sciatic pain can show up in different areas of the leg and foot, and many times the pain will come and go. Over time, people tend to go through periods of pain, which typically becomes more frequent and more intense as the problem goes unchecked.


Sciatica in Lexington

The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the spinal areas involved in the causation of sciatica. This area of the spine is rather complicated, but Dr. Nemastil at LifeStyle Chiropractic has over 20 years experience diagnosing and treating this common problem. Dr. Mike will perform a comprehensive examination of the spinal region and find the source of your sciatic pain. If it's a condition that Dr. Nemastil can help you with, he will treat you accordingly to improve the health of your spine and discs.

Many patients say all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper, or tie their shoe, and they experienced intense pain. They don't understand how such an easy task caused them so much pain? In all likelihood, they probably had a spinal condition developing over years that just needed the right timing or physical input to bring it to a painful reality. Most spinal problems don't happen overnight, they build up over years.


How Long Does it Take to Correct Sciatica?

Treatment length can vary from patient to patient. Some people respond very quickly while others take more time to recover. It really depends on the condition of their spine, the disc, the joints, and other involved spinal components. A rule of thumb- the longer the condition has been there, the longer it may take to correct. This is because there is probably more spinal deterioration. The great news is that Dr. Nemastil has over 20 years experience with these type problems, and has had great success treating them.

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. Is that a statistic that you're satisfied with?
