Sandra Rubio discusses how Dr. Alex Jimenez and his staff can help relieve your sciatica symptoms. Dr. Jimenez is the homeopathic, non-surgical choice for sciatic nerve pain and its associated symptoms.

Sciatica is generally caused by the compression of lumbar or sacral nerves or by the reduction of the sciatic nerve. When a dorsal nerve root compression causes sciatica, it’s called lumbar radiculopathy. This can occur because of a spinal disk bulge or spinal disk herniation (a herniated intervertebral disc), by roughening, enlarging, or misalignment (spondylolisthesis) of the fascia, or as a consequence of degenerated discs which can reduce the diameter of the lateral foramen by which nerve roots exit the spine.
Sciatica is a shooting pain that originates in the lower back and travels through the hip, buttock, and back of the leg. The pain can be so severe that it inhibits mobility and prevents people from working, taking care of their homes, or enjoying life. Doctors have treated the condition with medications and some invasive therapies, but chiropractic treatments are extremely effective in alleviating the pain and curing the disease.
