Sciatica : 
How Is It Treated?

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which extends from the lower back through the hips and buttocks, and down each leg. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of the body and can range from mild discomfort to severe pain, significantly impacting an individual's ability to perform daily activities. The condition is often triggered by a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine, or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis), which compresses a part of the nerve.

Non-surgical, minimally invasive treatments have become increasingly popular for managing sciatica, offering patients effective relief with minimal risk and downtime. Treatments such as epidural steroid injections can provide significant pain relief by reducing inflammation around the compressed nerve. After treatment, physical therapy is can be a part of sciatica treatment, focusing on exercises that promote spinal health, improve posture, and enhance flexibility and muscle strength to support the back. Lifestyle modifications and ergonomic adjustments also play an essential role in managing sciatica symptoms and preventing future episodes. Thsi can include adopting proper posture when sitting, standing, and lifting objects, as well as incorporating regular physical activity into your daily routine to strengthen the back muscles and improve spinal alignment.

For those seeking alternatives to traditional surgical interventions, advancements in medical technology have made it possible to explore a variety of minimally invasive procedures. These options not only target the source of sciatica pain but also promote a quicker recovery, allowing individuals to return to their normal activities with less discomfort and disruption to their lives. Our board-certified physicians will review your case individually and develop a customized treatment plan exactly tailored to your individual situation.

Sciatica can cause severe pain, numbness, weakness, or tingling, and a variety of other symptoms. Some of the most common treatments for sciatica include:

  • Epidural Steroid Injections
  • Physical Therapy
  • Medications
  • Hot and Cold Packs
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery
