What is sciatica?

Sciatica, also known as sciatic neuritis, is a medical condition in which pain is felt along the sciatic nerve or its branches. The term sciatica describes different symptoms that may be completely unrelated. The sciatic nerve runs from the lower spine through the hips and buttocks into each leg, ending in the feet. Sciatica means pain in any of these areas. Symptoms typically include numbness, tingling or a burning sensation running from the lower back into the buttock and down to one foot or calf.

In some cases, only one side of your body hurts; it’s usually worse when sitting and better when standing. On occasion, sciatic pain can affect your foot or toes and groin and genital area.

Freshman Muscle

In first year anatomy (human dissection), students often mistake the sciatic nerve for a muscle.

The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest nerve in the body. Very rarely, bone fragments, tumors or infections cause sciatica. And then surgery could become necessary. But most of the time sciatica comes from abnormal spine Alignment, Balance and Coordination (ABC). And while discs often become damaged, sometimes pressing directly on a nerve, even the American College of Physicians recommends that a drug-free, non-surgical approach be exhausted before considering drugs and surgery.

In the related article we share the Top 5 Insider Secrets that make you believe you need unnecessary surgery and 7 Proven Ways to Stay Out of Surgery, drug and pain free for good.

Sciatica ABCs

A is for Alignment

Aligning the body in good posture reduces stress and strain on the joints, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels.

If joints are not aligned, you might have pain. It is hard for a doctor to know if the joints are aligned without a lot of extra training after becoming a doctor.

Some special doctors gently use their hands or precise tools to align joints. They will not twist or crack any joint. Many people like this better than getting crunched repeatedly.

B is for Balance

Balance is beneficial since it allows you to do many things better, especially heal. The Closed Eye Marching Test (CEMT) is a high-level balance test. This exam assesses your balance.

When the eyes are shut, the brain must obtain feedback from joints sensors in order to maintain balance. And if you ask someone to walk in place during a test, you may discover that they have any number of hidden joint problems.

In just a minute, the CEMT may reveal more than x-rays or even an MRI scan. These diagnostic tools may be rather useful, but they are not flawless. The CEMT is also ideal to measure treatment progress because it is functional, non-invasive, quick, inexpensive and versatile.

C is for Coordination

It is difficult to keep everything inside the body coordinated. And if someone walks across the room when they try to march in place with their eyes closed, it suggests that there may be a similar issue in other bodily functions as well. The CEMT is a great non-invasive test for spinal injury, function, and the progress of treatment.

Holistic Medicine- Restoring Health Instead of Just Treating Symptoms

D is for Diet

Weight shame makes people feel bad. Too much weight can be bad for you, but many skinny people get poor results from drugs and surgery too.

The best way to reduce inflammation is to hydrate, avoid inflammatory foods and maintain a healthy diet rather than fad weight reduction diets. This might mean avoiding grains, dairy, and other food like substances labeled “diet.” Food can hurt or heal if you understand how.

E is for Exercise

Everyone should exercise daily. However, most people will not do so. That’s why Dr. Polucki uses PEMF Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy to provide all the advantages of traditional exercise even if the person is unable to move. Telehealth patients may use NIR Near Infra-Red therapy at home to reduce inflammation and improve circulation. And perform a few modified exercises until they start to feel better.

F is for Function

Functional Medicine aims to restore health instead of just managing pain. It engages the person with proper diet (may include supplements), and health rehabilitation instead of fighting an often-elusive disease.
