Pinched Nerve In Leg – My Quest For The Right Treatment

September 16th, 2013


Hey Alex here,

If you are looking for a treatment for your pinched nerve in leg, then I’m glad you stumbled over this website and I strongly recommend you keep reading.

This is my uncensored story of how I managed to find a treatment for my pinched nerve pain (if you’ve read the previous post, you know by now it is called the sciatic nerve). The ups, the downs, what treatments did not work and finally the one thing that helped me to get rid of the pain caused by the pinched nerve in my leg.

As I mentioned in one of the previous posts (Pinched Nerve in Leg), despite my age, I have been suffering from sciatica for quite a while. About once a month, that sciatic nerve in one of my legs got pinched, making it pretty difficult to walk or even sleep. It also got quite tiring to hear the same question “hey, what happened to your leg?” about once a minute from each colleague I met at work. Not to mention the harder sciatic nerve attacks, when I simply wasn’t able to go down the stairs at home to go to work. Sounds familiar, huh?

After the first time I skipped work because of that pinched nerve in leg, I started to look for a solution. I went to see some doctors, but the best they could recommend for me was sessions of physiotherapy. Well, I don’t know about you, but when I have this sciatic nerve pain, the last thing I want to try is letting someone to move around my hurting leg. Anyway, I did give it a try, but got nothing out of it except from some extra sciatic nerve pain during the so called “treatment”. I must say though, that perhaps I didn’t give it a fair chance, since the treatment was just too painful. Then I started to look at alternative medicine methods. I thought – what hurts is a nerve, I’m no doctor but I know the nerves are sourced in the back, hence, lets treat the back. I looked for the best and most recommended chiropractor in my area, who told me I was right – the pinched nerve in my leg hurts because that sciatic nerve is pinched somewhere in my back. He promised me he can treat this very easily and I had no reason not to believe him. He treated me for about a year, once a week. The good thing about this treatment was it wasn’t that painful. The bad thing was it didn’t help me one bit. It didn’t even relieve my pain during the sciatic nerve attacks.

When I got almost desperate, thinking that the pain from the pinched nerve in leg is there to stay, I accidentally stumbled upon a treatment, that eventually proved out to be helpful. Now, I must say I was very skeptical at first, as I really not tend to believe in any “wonder-cures”. But, since I really was desperate, I decided to give it a try. This e-book I found describes a way to treat the sciatic nerve pain, which is based on the Chinese medicine and it is really easy to implement. I must warn you though that it can take a while to start the sciatic nerve treatment. It took me about a few days to figure out, but afterwards it was very easy. Now, a year after I treated my sciatica, I am really grateful for this solution. I hope that you found this information useful in your own quest for the cure for sciatica… and you can click here to check out the treatment I found.

 Hope my small page helped you,

What Is This “Sciatica” or “Pinched Sciatic Nerve”

September 9th, 2013

Greetings, Alex here again…

As promised, I will try to give you some information about sciatica, which is causing this pinched nerve in leg or buttock. I promise not to be too long and I can only hope not  to be too boring.  In case you are know what is sciatica, you can skip this post.

The Sciatic nerve, which, as I told in the previous post is causing the pain in the leg or the buttock, is the largest of the peripheral nerves in our body. As you can see in the image on your left, the sciatic nerve begins in the the lower back, runs through the buttock and ends at the foot. The sciatic nerve supplies nearly the whole of the leg skin , the muscles of the back of the thigh, and those of the leg and foot.

I guess by now you are starting to realize how can a problem with the sciatic nerve cause the pain in the leg and/or in the buttock, you are experiencing. I am no doctor, so I will not go through the medical explanation of sciatica. If you want more medical info about sciatica you are more than welcome to visit the “Articles and Videos” and the “More info” pages of this website. I just want to mention that root of the “pinched nerve in leg” problem is pinching of the sciatic nerve, caused by compression of other nerves (or even of the sciatic nerve itself). This compression can, in turn, be caused by diseases of the spinal cord, excess weight or even pregnancy, when the fetus may apply pressure on the sciatic nerve, pinching it as a result.

So, after defining our problem, you must be wandering  what about the solution, or what can be done for this sciatic nerve relief. Well, I was wandering too. And I must say my quest for the right treatment for sciatica was quite long and tiring. But, hey, I guess this post is becoming long and tiring as well, so I promise to tell you the story of my quest in the next post.

Bye for now and see you soon,

Alex.

Pinched Nerve in Leg

September 5th, 2012


Hey, Alex here!

Welcome to my blog. I want to tell you about an annoying problem I used to have – a pinched nerve in leg. I was born in the early 1980-s, so, unlike the kids of today, I was quite active during my childhood. But then, while I was in high school, and even more so later, during my academic studies, my lifestyle became quite “sedentary”. Today I hold an engineering job, which also keeps me sitting on my behind for most of the day. Unfortunately, until lately I wasn’t aware of the damage my lifestyle causes to my back – hey, if nothing hurts then nothing’s wrong, right? Well… Wrong!!! The damage was building up, until one day, as I woke up, I felt a slight pain in the top of my leg, which went away quite fast, after making a few steps. Now, I still didn’t make that much account of it. I did realize that since the pain goes away after a few steps, then it’s probably not a muscle problem, but rather symptoms of a pinched nerve somewhere in my leg. A few more months passed, and this pinched nerve pain came back, this time not going away after a few steps, making it hard to walk and even sleep. I was then alarmed by it and started to look for information about that weird pinched nerve. I found out that the condition is called “sciatica“, after this annoying nerve, which is called the sciatic nerve. I found out I’m not alone in it – more then 10% of the US population suffers from it, I realized what causes this pinched nerve in leg. In this blog, I will try to pass what I have learned to you.
