A world-renowned clinician's practical and complete guide to understanding and alleviating neurological pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs.
Sciatica is the acute or chronic feeling of pain, hot or cold, numbness, weakness, "electric shocks" or strange sensations, starting near your seat and going down your leg. It is a condition for which some 20 million Americans will seek help this year. Usually neurological, sciatica may originate with a herniated disk, spinal stenosis, or piriformis syndrome, and may be caused by a fall, physical overextension, or being cramped in an airplane or car. In Sciatica Solutions, Loren Fishman, MD, a researcher with twenty-five years of experience, offers help. In easy-to-understand terms, he demystifies the relationship between neurological injury and sciatica, explains the most common causes, and leads you to an exact diagnosis. Outlining the range of physical therapy, medicinal, and surgical options, Fishman focuses on a comprehensive guide to behavioral, exercise, and lifestyle adjustments you can make for lasting comfort and cure. 20 illustrations.
