Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, often down one side of the body. It may also be accompanied by tingling or numbness. Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors, such as a herniated disk that pinches the sciatic nerve or a narrowing of the spine that compresses the nerve. It can also be caused by the sciatic nerve being pinched between two muscles in the buttocks, known as the piriformis and the gluteus maximus. This type of sciatica is more common and the pain radiates down through the hip and leg. Sciatica can cause reduced mobility due to weakness in the affected leg.
There is often an occupational predisposition for sciatica, with machine operators, truck drivers, and other workers who are required to maintain physically awkward positions being at higher risk. Many men have also reported that sciatica began after sitting for long periods on an uncomfortable chair with a wallet in their back pocket, or after making an awkward twist while carrying a heavy object. The peak incidence of sciatica occurs in individuals in their 40s.
To address sciatica, individuals may take medication such as NSAIDs, opioids, nonopioid analgesics, or muscle relaxants, or in severe cases, resort to surgery to correct structural abnormalities like disc herniation, epidural hematoma, epidural abscess, or tumors. Astro-Durance Bungee Studios offers an alternative solution for sciatica pain relief. Many of their clients have reported experiencing long-lasting relief after just one to three 30-minute training sessions on the Astro-Durance bungee system.
Ronnie is a veteran who came to Astro-Durance Bungee Studios with back issues, spinal stenosis, sciatica, and neuropathy. He initially used a walker and cane to walk, but after just four to five sessions on the Astro-Durance bungee system, he was able to completely eliminate the cane and walk much better and stronger, with most of his pain gone. Ronnie has been coming to the studio for about a month and a half now and says he is a completely different person than when he first started. He credits the Astro-Durance bungee system with significantly improving his mobility and reducing his pain.
How can this be done? What did Astro-Durance do for these clients?
We have found through hundreds of testimonies that by stretching and strengthening specific muscle groups, many sciatica problems can be alleviated as the body goes through the proper range of motion. Once the pain sets in from the aggravated sciatic nerve, it becomes difficult if not impossible to do normal everyday functional movements such as walking and squatting. By de-weighting a person suffering from sciatica with Astro-Durance Bungee Systems, individuals are able to do functional movements in the full range of motion to reduce this compression on the nerve. When someone suffers with sciatica their muscles can become very tight and rigid. By stretching these muscles out in a dynamic way and pumping them up with oxygen and nutrient rich blood, the strained muscles are trained to relax again, and the support muscles are strengthened to prevent ongoing sciatica.
