A new sciatic treatment has recently been discovered for fast relief of sciatica.
Sciatica is pain in the lower back and gluteus that often radiates down the legs, traveling as far as the feet.
It is this radiating of pain below the knee that differentiates sciatica from back pain.
Sciatica is so called because it is caused by compression or injury of the sciatic nerve, located in the lumbar portion of the spine.
Sciatica is synonymous with sciatic pain and can range from dull to sharp with accompanying sensations of tingling, numbness, or burning.
Remember that tightened muscles can pull on individual discs in the spine.
Heat helps relax muscles that have a tightened hold on a disc or discs.
Ice helps reduce swelling of nerves surrounding the spine.
Sciatic pain can also be continuous or intermittent.
Sciatic treatment is aimed at eliminating the pain.
Some traditional treatments for your sciatica.
The traditional sciatic treatment has always been bed rest, specific exercises, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or narcotics like codeine.
In extreme cases cortisone injections into the spine or surgery is performed.
These are the opposite extremes in sciatic treatment.
For most people, ibuprofen and bed rest is not enough while surgery is too much.
A middle ground can be found in some of the newer treatments.

Doctors agree that massage as a form of physical therapy is a fast and effective sciatic treatment.
MASSAGE has led to a new sciatic treatment known as Spinal Decompression.
Massaging back muscles helps relax their hold on the individual disc(s) of the spine.
Spinal decompression is performed by a physical therapist or Chiropractor with a specialized traction machine.
The traction machine uses computerized motors to S–T–R–E–T–C–H the spine that decompresses the spinal discs.
These machines gently stretch the muscles, the spine, and the entire back area, and are highly effective.
The negative pressure created in the discs pulls herniated discs away from the sciatic nerve while increasing blood flow and nutrient availability to the area.
With the new computerized spinal decompression systems, pain during sciatic treatment is a thing of the past as the computers adjust the motors with each response of the body.
Therefore, treatment is performed while the muscles are constantly relaxed for maximum effectiveness.
The success of spinal decompression hovers between the 80 to 90 percent range.
It will not work for everyone, but 90 percent is one of the highest success rates of any sciatic treatment.
