Sciatica Therapy in Alpharetta, GA • Dr. Kevin Hudec
Sciatica Therapy in Alpharetta, GA: Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain going down the sciatic nerve pathway which runs from the lower back to the leg. The most frequent cause of sciatica is a spinal disc herniation which puts pressure on the sciatic nerve and is present in about 90% of cases. Sciatica can be an extremely debilitating condition that can affect your everyday activities. Sciatica typically affects only one side of the body and classic symptoms include pain radiating down the back of the leg from the buttocks region.
Many people find that living with sciatica can be a nightmare. Chronic and acute pain disrupt sleep and everyday activities. If you feel like you have sciatica you should see Dr. Kevin Hudec immediately so he can diagnose and treat the symptoms before they worsen.
Additional Common Symptoms of Sciatica Include:
- Pain in the back, buttocks, hip or lower extremities
- Leg and/or foot numbness
- Sensation of pins and needles in the legs and buttocks
- Burning sensation
- Muscle weakness
Why You Should Go to a Chiropractor for Sciatica
Sciatica care usually incorporates chiropractic adjustments with spinal hydration therapy exercises. These elements are a central component of almost any sciatica care plan. When practice members engage in a regular program of chiropractic adjustments and specific exercises, they can recover quickly from sciatica pain and are less likely to have future episodes of pain.
Herniated Discs and the Sciatic Nerve
When a herniated disc presses on nerve roots, it can cause pain, numbness, and weakness in the area of the body where the nerve travels. A herniated disc in the lower back can cause pain and numbness in the buttock and down the leg. These nerves that run down the legs from the buttocks are referred to as the sciatic nerves. Chiropractic care seeks to remove stress from the nervous system, ultimately relieving pain suffered from sciatica.
Dr. Hudec has helped many patients with chronic and acute sciatic nerve pain. Through chiropractic care, patients can regain their health and live their life without sciatica pain.

PulStar Computerized Impulse Adjustment Technology at Hudec Chiropractic Center: Analysis and Treatment of Chronic or Acute Pain (including sciatica) Using Computer Controlled Impulses with Documented Results.
Hudec Chirorpactic Center in Alpharetta is proud to be one of the few chiropractic offices on our area that have acquired the PulStar Analysis and Treatment System. With the aid of advanced computer technology, the PulStar Adjusting system uses the most precise and gentle impulse to obtain desired results.
PulStar consists of a handheld device that is equipped with sensors that detect problems in the pine and surrounding soft tissue. The technology used in the device will analyze each joint to understand the functioning. The result of the analysis will be displayed in the form of a graph, which provide a precise information regarding the functioning of the joints.
Pulstar uses a gentle force without any twisting or popping movements. The device is extremely helpful for patients suffering from whiplash injuries, spinal injuries, osteoporosis, degenerative arthritis, joint fusions, and other such conditions. Because of the Pulstar gentle impulses, patients will not tighten the muscles during the adjustment. If any of the vertebrae is suffering from restricted movement, then the resistance of the vertebrae to the impulse will be more than the normal vertebrae.
