High impact sports can be murder on knee joints. Among all the joints in your body, the knee joint supports the most weight. Add to that the stress and pressure of high impact sports, and you have ripe conditions for knee injury.
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.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.

Karen had been busy all afternoon making a special dinner. Everything was just about ready and now it was time to set the table. She opened the cabinet and reached up to get two of the fancy china plates reserved for only the most elegant affairs. That was when she felt the pain in her shoulder and the sensation that someone was trying to hold her arm down.
