Part 1: The Most Common Causes of Sciatica - Numbers 1 and 2

Sciatica is a very complicated problem, and there are several causes or conditions that can cause it. Most of these causes begin in the spine. Because of that, this part begins with a short explanation of what the spine is and how it relates to Sciatica, and then discusses the two most common causes of Sciatica and how they can cause it.

Part 2: The Most Common Causes of Sciatica - Numbers 3, 4, and 5

It's always important for any type of back pain to understand the source of the pain. But it is even more important to understand for Sciatica, because the source of the pain is not always in the same area. This part discusses the other three common causes of Sciatica and how they can cause sciatic pain.

Part 3: What Causes Sciatica? (Video)

It is important that everyone fully understands what the Five Most Common Causes of Scaitica are, because the key to treating Sciatica is to identify the causes so that they can be properly addressed and eliminated. When you have any of these 5 causes you will need a treatment that eliminates the exact cause, and when you do that your Sciatica will go away. The video in this part recaps the 5 most common causes of sciatica, and includes visual aides to help you to better understand those causes.

Part 4: What Is Sciatica?

Many people do not know what Sciatica is exactly. They think Sciatica is the cause of their pain, but in actuality it is a symptom! The term Sciatica comes from the Sciatic Nerve, which runs from your lower spine all the way down your legs and to your feet. This part explains just what the Sciatic nerve is and how it can cause such severe pain.

Part 5: The 8 Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

For many people suffering with Sciatica, the pain can be Severe. Sometimes, it can even be so debilitating that it can be enough to keep you from truly living life. An important thing to note about Sciatica is that no one person's is the same, and different people could have different symptoms and levels of severity to them. This part explains those symptoms, and how they occur.

Part 6: The 7 Most Common Treatments, and What You Need to Know About Them

When someone suffering with Sciatic pain goes to see their family physician, the doctor will usually prescribe some sort of treatment or medication, or combination of the two. The type of treatment and/or medication that the doctor prescribes usually depends on what the back injury is and how high the pain level is. This part discusses each common treatment, the reason they are prescribed, and the risks involved with each.

Part 7: The Science Behind Relieving Sciatica Pain

Sciatica is extremely difficult to treat because none of the treatments traditionally used, like the ones mentioned previously, do anything to treat the actual cause of the Sciatica. What makes our treatment different and better is that we specifically target the discs that cause the Sciatica, and we heal them. This part discusses our treatment, Functional Disc Rehydration, and how it works to eliminate sciatica pain.

To help you to better understand how Functional Disc Rehydration works so well, this part will discuss and show how our treatment was able to repair damage for two more of the most common causes of Sciatica.

Part 10: Saving People From Sciatica

We wrote these tips about Sciatica because so many people suffer from it, and many really only knew that it can be extremely painful. But they didn't know how or why they had it, what it is, why the treatments they were trying weren't working, or why our treatment has been so successful in relieving Sciatica pain. This last part reviews what we have discussed so far, includes some case studies of patients we have helped, and concludes with some final thoughts about Sciatica and what you can do to become pain free for life!
