Sciatica in Dallas TX

The pelvic and lumbar spine are usually the areas where a sciatic issue will start from. This area of the spine is very complicated and it can be difficult to locate the problem. Our team will be able to work with you to zero in on the source. From there they will need to work with you to improve the position of the spine and discs.

Some patients say that all they did was bend over to pick up a piece of paper and they were hit with extreme pain. 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, they build up over years of time.

How Long Does it Take to Correct Sciatica?

Treatment length for sciatic pain can vary significantly from patient to patient. Some people respond very quickly 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. In most cases, the longer the issue persists, the longer it will take to achieve correction. The great news is that it typically takes less time to fix an issue like this than it took 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.

If you are serious about turning this problem around, and avoiding surgery, call our team at Texas Functional Health Centers in Dallas today. We are here to answer any questions you have and we look forward to meeting you soon.

Sciatica Q & A

What is sciatica?

Sciatica refers to pain from the sciatic nerve, the main nerve in your legs. The sciatic nerve is the largest in your body and consists of several nerve roots that exit the lumbar and sacral spine, join together in the buttocks, and travel down the back of your leg on both sides of the body.

Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve may cause moderate to severe pain that starts in the lower back and radiates into the leg. You may also have numbness or weakness in the leg or foot.

What causes sciatica?

You can develop sciatica from any number of causes. In most cases, the pain condition develops from compression or irritation of a sciatic nerve root as it exits the lumbar spine from a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or degenerative disc disease (DDD).

Trigger points may also cause sciatica. Trigger points are tight bands of muscle (muscle knots) that form from overuse. These muscle knots may pinch the sciatic nerve, causing the pain condition.
