Extreme pain in your legs or back may be due to disc herniation or a pinched sciatic nerve (sciatica).
Caring for Sciatica / Disc Herniation
The video below shows a very gentle way to traction the discs of the low back. It takes the pressure off the sciatic nerve and helps the disc to heal by pulling fluid and nutrition into the disc. Do this exercise as often as you like. It may be one of the few positions that is comfortable for you.

Discs are Key
Spinal discs act as spacers between vertebra. If discs degenerate, the vertebra rub together causing arthritis. Eventually this leads to spinal stenosis or spondylolithesis, which put direct pressure on the spinal cord. This causes pain, weakness and loss of function. Many old people need wheel chairs and lose their bowel and bladder function for this reason.
Water, Nutrition, Movement
Spinal discs don't have a blood supply. They rely on movement to pull in nutrition and fluid. When a spinal joint becomes stuck, the disc starts to degenerate.
We focus on the Disc
Activator chiropractic mobilizes and aligns spinal joints restoring normal movement. Cox chiropractic stretches each disc pulling in fluid and nutrition. If the disc isn't too far gone, it can heal. In other words, the degeneration process can be reversed.
