Sciatica Treatment in North Wales, PA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Sciatica is a pain that runs from the lower back down the leg of one leg, often into the foot and toes. It is caused by an irritation of the sciatic nerve caused by a compression.

Some people suffering from sciatica also can experience a burning, tickling or prickly sensation, usually on one side of the body. The type and amount of pain a person experiences depends on the location of the nerve compression.

In some instances the pain can be very mild, while in others it can be severe and debilitating. Although most people will recover from an episode of sciatica within a few weeks, the pain can sometime worsen over time or persist for much longer. It all depends on the underlying cause.

Sciatica and Nerve Damage

Although it is rare, in some instances sciatica can result in permanent nerve damage. But the irritation of the nerve that causes the sciatica pain usually is reversible.

Symptoms of a more serious medical problem include bladder or bowl incontinence, growing weakness, or the loss of sensation in the leg.

Where the Sciatic Nerve is Located:

Sciatic nerves are the longest in the body. They extend from the lower back all the way down to the toes.

Sciatic nerves exit the spin between two vertebrae in the lower back and travel behind the hip joint down the buttock and along the back of each leg into the foot.

Sciatica is caused by the irritation of one or both of these nerves. Typically, a herniated disc applies pressure on the sciatic nerve root.

Often, people experiencing sciatica have leg pain, which makes them mistakenly think that the sciatica is caused by some sort of problem within the leg.

Other causes of sciatica can include spinal tumors, spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, or sciatic nerve tumor or injury.

Anybody Can Have Sciatica

Many people believe that sciatica is something that only effects people who have a sedentary lifestyle. And while it’s true that sedentary people are more at risk for sciatica, it actually can affect active people as well, especially if they participate in activities that involve twisting the back or carrying heavy loads frequently.

In most cases, sciatica will resolve itself within a few weeks. Treatment options include exercise, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. For some patients, however, the pain can last much longer, so individualized treatment plans are recommended.

Sciatica Treatment Options

Another more natural and less invasive sciatica treatment option is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment. By gently decompressing the involved spinal discs pressure on the sciatic nerve can be relieved and the pain from sciatica can go away.

Been seeing Bianco for years, since I found out I had 5 herniated and bulging discs in my lumbar spine, as well as a 13 degree curvature. He was recommended to me after a horror story of trying a new chiropractor with my diagnosis, where I left crying. Bianco assured me everything would be alright and went to work with a plan to get my discs rejuvenated and my curvature realigned. After about a year, I was back to running and working out with the best of them, and my curvature is NO MORE! We’re now going on probably year 8 or 9 of seeing Bianco. I still slip a disc or knock a vertebrae out of place once in a while from teaching dance, but he fixes me up every time. As soon as I feel myself throw my back out, I’m headed to him and within about 24-48 hours, I’m walking like a human being again. There’s many types of chiropractors, and Bianco is definitely well trained and focuses on anatomical corrections, and has helped my mom realign her ankle, knee, and hip too. My dad now sees him as well, and his decompression machine has not only fixed my spinal curvature and my disc issues, but has enabled my dad to have feeling in his toes again. He’s the only chiro I know that has a true decompression machine, and it truly works. Definitely go for a consultation. Bring your MRI’s and X-rays and just talk to him. I’m sure him and his training will win you over! If nothing else, he’s been keeping me walking, dancing, and standing upright for years, and that says something with a back that other chiropractors have dubbed as “the back of a 90 year old.”

Six years ago, I hurt my back to a point where I couldn't walk, sit, or stand without sever pain. I was desperate to get relief. I spent thousands of dollars on pain specialists, physical therapy, chiropractic care, new furniture, new mattress, new car...you name it, I was throwing money into my back, to no avail. I was seeing Fuller Chiropractic and Injury Center and Dr. Fuller recommended I go to Bianco Chiropractor for spinal decompression. What a GAME CHANGER! I went on a treatment plan and was pain free three months later. That was two years ago and I still have little to no pain. Most the pain is muscular from doing things I couldn't do before: golfing, cleaning, walking, cooking, riding a bike, and plain ole exercising. If you suffer from back pain, do yourself a favor and get spinal decompression, through Dr. Bianco. It changed my life. It will change your life too. Thank you Dr. Bianco, for giving me my life back!!!

Dr. Bianco is a miracle worker. I have a severe bulge between my L4-L5 vertebrae that occurred during a motorcycle accident and years of heavy weight lifting. Dr Bianco's decompression table has given me new life. I can now do the things I still enjoy like play golf and exercise, all pain free!!!!!
