When you experience any kind of pain in your life, it’s an opportunity to overcome the challenges associated with it. At Ortho Sport & Spine, we offer many options for treatments of your neck, back, leg, knee and many other pains that you may be experiencing. We have treatments to help you recover from your painful condition that you are suffering from.
Radiculopathy is defined as a pinched nerve in the spine. When surrounding bones, cartilage, muscle, or tendons are deteriorated or injured, they pinch the nerves in the spine. This trauma causes the tissues within the spine to change position so that extra pressure is put on the nerve roots. When these roots are pinched, or compressed, they become inflamed. Numbness, weakness, and pain result from this condition, and it can be very debilitating to some.
Lumbar radiculopathy is pressure on the nerve root in the lower back. The most common symptom of lumbar radiculopathy is sciatica, or shooting pain in the legs. There are other symptoms that are also associated with this condition which include incontinence, sexual dysfunction, and severe paralysis in very severe cases. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we feature a talented team of Interventional Spine physicians who use the most advanced treatments to help patients find a long term solution to their sciatica. Treatments for Lumbar Radiculopathy are aimed at relieving the pressure on the pinched nerves in the spine to alleviate the pain that shoots down the lower back, hip, and legs.
If you have been diagnosed with sciatica or lumbar radiculopathy, contact the Atlanta Sciatica specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule a consultation. We will work with your physician and/or chiropractor to find a long-term solution to your pain and other symptoms. When treated in a timely manner, patients can find effective relief from their discomfort.

Had back surgery back in April, still having pain, went to Ortho Sport & Spine, they are trying to find what is causing my pain. They are understanding, and they care. I did not have my surgery here, but did have some injections. Wow, just great
Best place ever even though I was in a lot of pain they were so kind and made feel at home they were gentle and understanding. Would love to work for them in the future.
I've been there once so far and they are great.The people up front to register new patients and do check in are really welcoming.The whole staff are listening and friendly.
I was very impressed with Ortho Sport & Spine. They were able to schedule me an appointment immediately. The staff was very helpful, cheerful and informative. The facility was really nice and I was in and out in no time. Praying for a speedy recovery.
When it comes to getting injured, this is not something you’ve planned, and set a date for on your icalendar. Injuries happen suddenly, and with no prior planning. You’re walking into the meeting. You check your watch to make sure you’re on time.
