Mission Valley Sciatica Treatment

We Can Help

adjustWhen most people think of sciatica, pain in the leg comes to mind. As with most health conditions, however, there is a range of symptoms, along with various causes of sciatica.

Typical symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Burning
  • Low back pain
  • Numbness
  • Pain
  • Tingling
  • Weakness

Your symptoms may be localized to the buttocks area, or pain may travel down your leg all the way to your foot. It can occur on one or both sides of the body with varying intensity. You might also only feel symptoms in the foot or calf, so a proper diagnosis of the cause is vital to your recovery.

Locating the Root of Your Pain

The causes of sciatica vary, including pressure on the nerves that form or contribute to your sciatic nerve, a problem in your sacroiliac joint or an issue in the piriformis muscle, which runs on top of the sciatic nerve.

Getting You on the Road to Recovery

No matter what the root of your challenge is, Neurosynthesis: Mission Valley Nerve, Disc and Kinesiology is the place to get started on your recovery. Expert author, Dr. Britton has the training and experience to identify the source of your sciatic pain to create an effective treatment plan for you. He utilizes a nerve performance scan and Oswestry Disability Report which provide a comprehensive analysis.

Because we want to get you feeling better as quickly as possible, we offer a variety of tools to address the various symptoms of sciatica:

  • Inflammation and pain: State-of-the-art multi-axis spinal decompression gently and safely helps to remove the pressure on the affected nerve. To locate the best angle for your problem we use your MRI or X-ray. Most decompression units can only change one or two personalized angles. As this pressure is released, the body can address the inflammation that is causing pain. The disc, bone or muscle that was pressing is gently removed so you can experience restored health. We also use low-level laser to diminish the pain of inflammation as well as improve blood flow to damaged tissue.
  • Muscle pain and tightness: Manual therapy, deep tissue work and physiotherapy are used to reduce muscle pain and tension and to recover strength and rebuild normal tissue. Vibration platform training is also employed to retrain nerves and restore blood flow.
  • Nerve pain and degeneration: High-powered laser and high-energy electrical stimulation provide effective relief from these symptoms.

To round out your care and accelerate your recovery, we also provide home treatments, nutrition advice and infrared sauna.
