Sciatica Part 7: The Science Behind Relieving Sciatica Pain

Posted by Illinois Back Institute on Fri, May 01, 2015 @ 04:59 PM

sciatica_sct7aThis is Part 7 in our ongoing series all about Sciatica. If you missed Part 6, Click Here!

In Part 6, we discussed all of the various methods that the vast majority of doctors use to try and manage the pain from Sciatica and back problems, and try to fix them. We also discussed why these methods are prescribed in the first place. A quick reminder of what they are:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Chiropractic
  • Over-The-Counter Medications
  • Prescription Drugs
  • Narcotics
  • Spinal Injections
  • Surgery

We also discussed why these methods fail much of the time: because they are just temporary measures that only mask the pain and cover up the injury. They do not treat the actual cause of the Sciatica!

In fact, 1 out of 10 people who suffer with Sciatica end up resorting to surgery to try and correct the problem and hopefully relieve the pain.

But, while surgery is usually the last resort for most doctors to help people with Sciatica, it is also only a temporary solution. It just covers up the problem. The cause of the Sciatica is still there, and it will most likely come back, resulting in more surgery.

Functional Disc Rehydration can change all of that, because it actually eliminates the causes of Sciatica, the discs.  As you recall in Parts 1 and 2 of this series, we discussed these causes and how the three most common are the herniated disc, bulging disc, and degenerated disc.

Each of these conditions result from damage to the disc that causes loss of some "jelly" inside the disc and the discs become "dehydrated". Functional Disc Rehydration is a treatment that relieves pressure from off of these damaged discs and allows oxygen and nutrients to re-enter them in a way that no other treatment can, thereby Rehydrating them. At the same time, the muscles are strengthed and the spine is stabilized with therapy. This combination has been shown to repair damaged discs and relieve Sciatica completely!

sciatica_5-resized-600In order to validate this treatment, a study was commissioned with a medical researcher from a major west coast university. This study involved 50 patients ranging in age from 39 to 83, who all had chronic Sciatica and back pain and had tried several other treatments already, including chiropractic care, acupuncture, injections, and surgery. The results of the study were amazing:

  • After just one Functional Disc Rehydration treatment, all patients experienced disc rehydration of at least 18 percent
  • Therapy over 10 weeks produced rehydration in the disc of 80 percent
  • All patients experienced complete elimination of herniated and bulging discs!


This is important because it shows that Functional Disc Rehydration can relieve the pinching of the nerve, thus eliminating the cause of the Sciatica. And it does all of this without injections, without drugs, and without surgery! Part 8 will continue the discussion on our treatment and show how it has eliminated their Sciatica.
