Eliminate the Pain Caused by a Pinched Nerve in Philadelphia, PA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

A pinched nerve in your back can inflict serious pain that runs from your lower back and down the rear of one leg running from the buttock down the back of the thigh and even into the calf and foot.

Pain from a pinched nerve may begin abruptly or slowly. Usually, it is characterized by sharp, acute pain that feels a lot like an electric shock. Moving the leg, back or other area of the body affected by the pinch nerve will often increase this pain.

Pain from a pinched nerve may be spread uniformly along the leg, but there frequently are certain spots where the pain is more intense. This pain is often followed by numbness or a tingling sense along the sciatic nerves, the longest nerve group in the body which runs from the lower back and down the back of both legs.

Sources of a Pinched Nerve.

A pinched nerve may come from a process which causes pressure or irritation of the nerve roots which make up the sciatic nerve. This pressure may be caused by a variety of factors, including things like a ruptured intervertebral disk, the narrowing of the bony spinal canal (named spinal stenosis), or, in rare cases, by an infection or tumor.

The sciatic nerve is the longest and biggest in the body, measuring 3/4 of an inch in diameter in adults. It starts in the sacral plexus, the network of nerves situated in the lower back (lumbosacral spine).

The sciatic nerve and its divisions are what allow movement and sensation, or motor and sensory functions. in the thigh, knee, calf, ankle, foot and toes.

If your sciatic nerve is compressed, or “pinched”, it can cause pain along these paths. This is the reason pinched nerve pain can spread or radiate to other parts of your body.

Pinched nerve pain may be caused by a bulging or herniated disk, degenerative disk disease, piriformis disorder, pregnancy, spinal stenosis, a spinal tumor or spinal infection, or by damage.

All of these conditions can apply pressure to the sciatic nerve or other associated nerve roots located in your lower back. It is this compression, or pinching, that results in your pain and other symptoms.

After over a decade of back and sternum pain, I trusted Dr. Paul with treating my chronic problems. He was confident in his plan, and within days I had much needed relief. He provided me with great advice and exercises to perform at home which helped me to build strength and get back to the things I love. So very thankful our paths crossed. Dr. Paul helped me so much. His staff is so very friendly, and accommodating. The office was always clean with proper Covid prevention procedures in place. Mostly decent music, ha! I highly recommend this practice.

I came to see Dr. Roscioli after years seeing other chiropractors and being told my neck and shoulder pain would never go away. After our first meeting, he was confident he could fix my problems. Only a few weeks later and I am almost completely pain free. The Dr. is great and his support staff are friendly and prompt. I recommend him to anyone who has been told they can’t be helped or even if you are just looking to feel better. Thanks, Dr!
