Sciatica pain can vary widely, from a mild ache to a sharp, burning sensation causing excruciating discomfort. Some people also experience numbness, tingling or muscle weakness in the affected leg or foot. Sciatica always has a cause, most often from another untreated condition. The most frequent conditions that cause sciatica are a lumbar herniated disc that either squeezes a nerve or causes a leaky disc, leading to chemical inflammation. Other conditions cause leg pain as well. Each condition has the ability to irritate the sciatic nerve, causing sciatica.

While yoga can help strengthen the spine, it is important to be careful while stretching. Flexing and rotation of the spine can damage the discs. Always be aware of your personal limits and be sure to modify or not participate in certain stretches if they push the limits of your spine too much. Ask your instructor how to modify the exercises that cause your spine to be in flexion and rotation as these are compressive and shear forces that tear the disc.

The most common cause of pain in the back are due to the discs. The discs are the cushions in between the bones in your spine. The discs can be injured, degenerate, bulge, and herniate. These conditions need to be corrected, and the best way to correct them is naturally, not adding hardware, plates, rods, or screws. Our Discseel treatment uses a natural biologic rather than the hardware that spinal fusions use. Call us at 903-593-2222 or visit our website to see if you are a candidate. https://discseel.com/request-a-consultation/

“I had the DISCSEEL procedure with Dr. Pauza in September 2015. All five of my lower lumbar discs were sealed. I’ve been surfing for nearly 40 years (I’m currently 50 yrs of age), and I’ve led a very active lifestyle. I was back to my active lifestyle and back to surfing about 6 months after my procedure! I’m able to surf everyday now, and I am doing very well. I am very thankful for Dr. Pauza and his staff for taking such good care of me and giving my active life back to me. I highly recommend this procedure if you’re suffering from pain and want to maintain your flexibility and avoid spine fusion.”

The Discseel Treatment is a procedure in which Dr. Pauza introduces a naturally occurring substance from the human body into damaged discs in the lumbar and/or cervical spine. It seals the disc, becoming a part of the disc, causing normal disc tissue to grow. Our goal is to decrease your pain, allowing you to return to a normal life.

When speaking to your doctor about neck pain, you may hear them reference your pain as Cervical pain. Many patients who have disc pain in their neck have symptoms not only in the neck, but also between their shoulder blades, down the arm, and sometimes into the hand and fingers. The Cervical Spine is the uppermost region, consuming of 7 total vertebrae, which take up the entirety of the neck. Because the neck has the thinnest set of vertebrae of the spine, they are naturally more delicate but offer a great amount of flexibility that the neck requires for movement.

We all know that smoking isn’t great for your health, but did you know that those who smoke are more likely to have back pain? A study from Northwestern University found that people who smoke are much more likely to develop chronic back pain than those who do not smoke.

“I flew over from tropical Queensland, Australia to have the Disceel treatment by Dr Pauza. I’m glad I did. I had sciatica and a little sciatic pain down both legs. I was using walking poles to get around. I had chronic pain in my lower back. Five discs were in total degeneration. The medical profession in Australia did not have any solution for my condition. I contacted Carrie (from Dr Pauza’s office), to learn about his treatment and I’m glad I did. The sciatic pains went away within days of the treatment. Lower back pain diminished from a 9/10 to a 2/10 within months. I have osteoarthritis throughout my spine and hips which causes different pain for me. My family and I are very grateful to Dr. Pauza and his great team. Who would have thought this simple procedure could change the quality of life for people who suffer with high level pain continuously? This treatment will be available in Japan in the near future. Thanks again Dr. Pauza. I hope the Discseel treatment will be available to back pain suffers throughout world.”

It’s important to avoid movements that could injure one’s back, such as flexion and rotation. Flexion, or forward bending, is a compressive force on the spine’s disc and rotation (twisting), is a shear force on the disc, both of which damage and tear discs. Be careful to avoid these two movements that cause wear and tear on the discs, leading to torn herniations.

What is PRP?

Platelet rich plasma, commonly referred to as "PRP", is concentrated from your own blood that has a robust source of healing components. Platelets are the clotting cells found in our blood, but they also have great potential in enhancing the healing of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Studies suggest that growth factors in PRP may augment tissue repair as well accelerate soft tissue healing.

PRP has shown great promise when injected into chronically injured muscles, tendons, and ligaments when proper healing has not taken place on its own. It has shown positive outcomes for issues such as minor rotator cuff tears and tears in the hip as well as knee injuries. PRP is a new treatment that allows patients to avoid unnecessary surgery. If you suffer from shoulder, hip, or knee pain, you may want to consider PRP as a hopeful option. To learn more, call and make an appointment with Dr Pauza at 903-593-2222.
