Low Back / Leg Pain

Low back pain or lumbago is a common musculoskeletal disorder affecting 80% of people at some point in their lives. In the United States it is the most common cause of job-related disability, a leading contributor to missed work, and the second most common neurological ailment — only headache is more common. It can be either acute, sub acute or chronic in duration. With conservative measures, the symptoms of low back pain typically show significant improvement within a few weeks from onset. It is commonly misdiagnosed and therefore treated ineffectively with harmful drugs, which only treat the symptoms. In fact these commonly prescribed drugs are responsible for commonly causing severe adverse reactions. The most common cause for lower back pain is biomechanical in origin; meaning is caused by, fixation or subluxation in the lumbar or sacroiliac region of the spine.

One of the more common causes for leg pain is Sciatica, which is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to each sciatic nerve, or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. The pain is felt in the lower back, buttock, or various parts of the leg and foot. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular weakness, pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg. Typically, the symptoms are only felt on one side of the body. Pain can be severe in prolonged exposure to cold weather.

Although sciatica is a relatively common form of low back pain and leg pain, the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This point is important, because treatment for sciatica or sciatic symptoms often differs, depending upon the underlying cause of the symptoms and pain levels. A very common cause is spinal subluxation an or fixation. Dr. Hobson has had wonderful success treating sciatica for almost three decades, because of accurate diagnosis and effectively treating the cause and not just the symptoms with dangerous drugs.
