Sciatica is something that many people have heard of even if it is not something that they have experienced themselves. The term sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain that generally presents itself as tingling, numbness or weakness, burning or sharp pain in the buttock and down the leg.

Spinal Decompression allows the normal disc space to be regained taking the pressure off of your nerve root that is causing your sciatic pain.
