As a condition that develops as a result of irritation within the sciatic nerve that extends from the lower part of the spine to the back of the thigh, sciatica can occur due to a variety of factors. In many instances, irritation of the nerve is due to a herniated disc, damage to cartilage, a growth on the spine, spinal stenosis (narrowing of the lower spine), a spinal tumor, an infection, trauma, or previous injury. For most patients with sciatica, pain is experienced all the way from the hips and back to down one or both legs. Our team of skilled pain management experts offers innovative diagnostic testing and treatments in order to help you experience alleviation from the uncomfortable effects of sciatica. If sciatica is interfering with your normal daily life, it could be the right time to obtain professional medical care.

In less severe cases of sciatica, low-impact exercises and physical therapy could effectively alleviate pressure from the affected nerve. For cases of sciatica that are more severe, other methods of treatment might be suggested, including prescription-strength medication, injections, or nerve stimulation procedures. In your initial consultation at Tricity Pain Associates, your available treatment options will be evaluated and an ideal plan will be formulated to ensure you receive long-term results and exceptional pain relief.
