Sciatica

Lordex spine center of Columbia specializes in treating Sciatica.

Sciatica refers to weakness, numbness, pain, or tingling in the leg. Sciatica is caused by injury or pressure on the sciatic nerve.

Sciatica is a symptom of another medical problem, not a medical condition on its own. Sciatica is commonly caused by slipped disc, pirformis syndrome, tumors or pelvic injury or fracture.

Sciatica pain often starts slowly and the pain may get worse at night, after standing, sitting, when sneezing, coughing, laughing, when bending backwards, or by walking more than a few yards (especially if caused by spinal stenosis).

The Lordex Lumbar Spine System Decompression therapy uses a special kind of FDA-Approved therapy called “Closed reduction decompression” that alleviates pain by taking pressure off the nerves and discs in the lower back, or lumbar region, of the spine. Pressure on the nerve in this region is a major cause of Sciatica and other painful conditions.
