Your body is filled with nerves, but one in particular is known to be particularly associated with pain in your lower back. The sciatic nerve is formed by 5 nerve roots in the lower spine, and it extends all the way down your legs to the soles of your feet. If this nerve is in pain, the condition is referred to as sciatica. Call us today if you’re experiencing a burning, tickly, or prickly sensation in your leg; Dr. Rozenberg can determine if it’s due to sciatica and develop an appropriate treatment plan accordingly.

What is Sciatica?
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerves are irritated or compressed by nearby tissue. The most common cause is a bulging or herniated disc that is being pushed out from its normal location. It should be noted that sciatica often results in leg pain; this leads many patients to mistakenly think that the issue originates in the legs themselves. That’s why it’s so important to get in touch with our practice as soon as possible so that we can narrow down the actual source of the discomfort.
Who is at Risk for Sciatica?
One of the biggest risks for sciatica is spending a good deal of your time sitting down. This might include working at your computer, driving, or simply lounging about. However, while people with sedentary lifestyles are more likely to suffer from sciatica, even active people can develop the condition, especially if they participate in an activity that involves twisting their backs or carrying a large amount of weight. Sometimes sciatica will resolve on its own in just a few weeks, but in other cases therapy plans will be required.
How Can Sciatica Be Treated?
Spinal decompression is generally a good way to relieve the pain that’s associated with sciatica. The act of decompressing the discs that are pushing on the nerves, we can stop the pressure along with the pain. Other forms of treatment might be recommended depending on your case, and you might also need to undergo at-home treatments (such as certain stretching exercises). Some sciatica will go away on its own within a few weeks, but you should take the initiative in seeking care if the pain becomes severe.
Our body parts are connected in various complex ways, so an issue in one area
can have unexpected consequences in another. As just one example, a
chiropractic issue that causes you to experience chronic discomfort may have
an unexpected impact on your sex life. Many male patients have come to
looking to have their back pain treated, and they are surprised to discover
that erectile dysfunction is often a symptom of many nerve, muscular, and back
conditions. With spinal decompression and other non-surgical treatments, Dr.
Rozenberg has been able to help such patients overcome both their back pain
and additional symptoms! If you’re tired of how back pain is changing
your life for the worse, call us today to schedule a consultation.

What is Erectile Dysfunction?
Erectile dysfunction is a condition that prevents men from getting
erections. Normally, an erection occurs when the senses register some
form of sexual stimulation. The muscles of the penis relax and increase
blood flow to the area; the blood pushes then against the veins carrying
the blood out and blocks them. However, if the flow of blood in the body
is being disrupted or hindered in any way, then this process can’t
take place, resulting in erectile dysfunction. Thus, men suffering from
this condition are typically also experiencing problems with veins and
nerves elsewhere in their bodies.
What Can Cause Erectile Dysfunction?
There are many potential underlying reasons for erectile dysfunction. In
many cases, the problem might be connected to back issues and other
chiropractic problems. Examples of back pain that might also tie into
erectile dysfunction include:
Herniated Discs: The vertebrae in your spine are
separated by rubbery cushions called discs. If a disc becomes
herniated, it can result in significant back pain. Additionally, the
now out-of-place disc can compress nearby nerves and veins, thus
cutting off blood flow to the pelvic region.
Pinched Nerves: Inflammation in the lower spine
(which is a common source of lower back pain) can compress the
pudendal nerve that allows sensations to be felt in the lower
genitalia. Erectile dysfunction is a common consequence of damage to
the pudendal nerve.
Tight Hip Flexors: The hip flexors run from the low
back spine, through the groin, and into your hip. If they become
compressed, various tendons, joints, and muscles can be pulled the
wrong way, resulting in back pain, erectile dysfunction, and various
other uncomfortable symptoms.
Potential Treatment Options
Different forms of back pain require different forms of treatment. By
successfully addressing the underlying cause of the discomfort, we may
also help you overcome your erectile dysfunction. Spinal decompression
– a noninvasive treatment that gently stretches the spine to take
pressure off nearby nerves and discs – can be used to relieve
various types of back pain. We might also use an MLS robotic laser to
stimulate the body’s natural healing processes so that damaged
nerves can recover. At, The Spine & Disc Center we provide the most
advanced natural pain relief therapy specifically for each
patient’s condition and symptom presentations.
