The Sciatica Authority

The Sciatica Authority

Welcome to The Sciatica Authority, the most comprehensive encyclopedia of back, buttocks, leg and foot pain information on the internet. This web community is a completely free health resource run by a combined effort of doctors and patients working together to provide advocacy and education services. The articles on this website provide the knowledge you will need to effectively treat chronic pain and end its control over your life. You have come to the right place to learn everything there is to know about the sciatic nerve and how it is responsible for so much human suffering. 

Sciatica is certainly one of the most misunderstood of all pain problems, not only by patients, by unfortunately, by doctors too. We have invested huge quantities of time, effort and money over the past decade to separate the facts of lower body nerve pain from the many myths.  The results of our research endeavors are presented in this website so that all can benefit from our experience.  Tens of thousands of patients have cited this knowledge as the direct source of their relief over the past decade.  No other website claims these curative results, since no other website provides our unique and proprietary view of chronic pain.  We are incredibly proud of our work, but still have a long way to go to reach every suffering patient, so our efforts continue.

You have always relied on the traditional sources of information when it came to learning about your sciatica.  Doctors, magazines, books and television programs all seem to spout the same recycled storyline, yet none of the many treatments attempted have brought you any significant or lasting relief from the pain.  What is wrong with this picture?  Conspiracy theories aside, medicine is big business and a cured patient is a lost customer.  The financial motivations of the healthcare sector have never been as prevalent as they are now.  Money truly governs every facet of your care.  We are tired of it and will never allow the truth to be overshadowed by the ability to generate income from falsehoods. We are not surprised to see you here, since virtually all sciatica suffers are completely dissatisfied with the care they have received and the outcomes of their numerous therapies. 

Yes, we are harshly critical of the present state of the healthcare system and its poorly conceived management of chronic pain patients.  We provide an outspoken voice of reason to counter the often illogical notions of sciatica causation, diagnosis and treatment. There is a good reason why most patients never find relief and we expose this truth for all to see and understand.  We are not burdened by the biases of financial sponsorship by some pharmaceutical, surgical or other medical device company.  Instead, we are driven by the conscience of truth and the indisputable light of objective research.

We seek to propagate the realities of sciatica to each and every reader worldwide and dispel the misconceptions.  We are certainly not out to make friends among the very doctors, chiropractors and therapists who are currently perpetrating literal injury against their patients through ignorance, mythology and greed. Ironically, despite this subversive attitude, we find our greatest supporters to be the best examples of professionals in all these healthcare professions, who embrace our ideas and want to create positive changes for their own patients.  For this, we are incredibly thankful.

We thoroughly explain the causes, symptoms, anatomy, diagnosis and treatment of sciatica in a manner that every reader can surely understand.  We caution readers on the significant hazards which are inherent to many medical, complementary medical and alternative care practices. Most importantly, we offer all our expert guidance with a watchful eye on the patient’s overall health and wellbeing.  We loath the over-compartmentalization of the human being in the modern healthcare sector and never make recommendations based on a limited vision of treating a “problem” compared to the greater need to remain healthy; mind, body and spirit.

Sciatica has been one of my longest lasting tormentors.  I have been suffering variable symptoms for 3 decades and certainly know all too well the misery you must endure each and every day.  I have learned much from my pain. In fact, it is this very suffering that has instilled such passion in me to help others. Assisting chronic pain sufferers to navigate their healthcare options is my life’s work and I am incredibly honored that you have placed your trust in me and my professional associates to help you to help yourself.
