Sciatica Pain Relief
Treatment Solutions for Your Sciatic Nerve Pain
Sciatica is a medical condition affecting the sciatic nerve, which is located at the bottom of the spine. The sciatic nerve extends across both hips and down the legs. When your sciatic nerve becomes impinged or compressed by a bulging disc in the spine, sciatica may develop. In many cases, physical trauma is the primary cause of bulging discs, but people with inflammatory conditions such as autoimmune disorders are at risk for developing sciatic nerve pain.
The Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica can present with a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including:
- Leg pain
- Hip Pain
- Back Pain
- Burning & Tingling
Treatment Options for Sciatica
Thankfully, sciatica can be treated using a variety of advanced spine care techniques at North Texas Brain & Spine Specialists. The ultimate goal of non-surgical pain relief treatments is to ease compression of the sciatic nerve. However, this decompression process takes time. While waiting to see progress toward spine decompression, several complementary treatment options may be recommended. Other sciatic nerve pain solutions focus on relieving symptoms temporarily.
For many of our sciatica patients, the following treatments have proven effective in reducing or eliminating spine pain:
- Over-the-counter pain relievers
- Anti-inflammatory medications
- Muscle relaxers
- Physical therapy
- Spinal Fusion Surgery
In some cases, however, surgery may be required to bring about sciatic nerve pain relief. In such situations, The North Texas Brain & Spine Specialists can provide you with a range of options and help you find the one that’s right for your unique needs. Our experienced surgeons use the latest in minimally-invasive surgical technology to easily and quickly alleviate sciatica pain while promoting faster healing.
