BEST SCIATICA TREATMENT CLINIC AND DOCTOR IN HOLLYWOOD, FLORIDA
It is estimated that between 60-70% of all Americans will suffer back pain in their lifetime.
Of these, about 10% will suffer significant disability as a result. As a Acupuncturist I find that sciatic pain is one of the most self-diagnosed and misdiagnosed conditions I treat.
By far the most common cause of back pain is a muscle/ligamentous strain. Patients may be in significant pain initially but a proper diagnosis and treatment will see them return to good health within weeks not months.
Sciatic back pain is caused by pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. Accurate diagnosis is vital because it determines appropriate treatment paths. Sciatica results in pain – often sharp or burning – radiating down the leg to the foot. It is most often associated with an acute episode. On occasions, further diagnostic testing may be required to determine the extent of the injury. Most episodes of sciatica respond well to acupuncture treatment.

Sciatica refers to pain in the passage and distribution region of the sciatica nerve. It’s main manifestation is radiating pain in the lower back and legs. It usually radiates from the lumbar region on just one side from the lumbar region or buttock to the posterior side of the thigh, popliteal fossa, lateral side of the leg and lateral side of the dorsum of the foot. Most sciatica is due to prolapse of a lumbar intervertebral disc.
