In this video Dr. Castanet explains sciatica treatment in Atlanta. He explains what is sciatica (pain in the distribution of the sciatic nerve, i.e. pain in the buttock/hip, thigh, leg and foot). He explains the most common nerve roots affected(S1 and L5), the typical lesion(disc) causing compression of the nerve roots and giving rise to the pain, and the most effective treatment for this problem.
Improving sciatica pain requires reducing pressure on the compressed nerve root. Dr. Castanet explains that treatment with spinal decompression is the most direct, effective way to improve the disc problem, get pressure off the inflamed nerve and reduce the pain.
Using spinal models, Dr. Castanet will show you what a typical herniated disc looks like, and how it compresses one of the sciatic nerve roots to cause pain and disability. Most patients will have a limp on the affected leg and have pain moving, sitting, bending and getting out of chairs.
