Sciatica Nerve Pain

Posted on behalf of Atlanta Orthopedic Surgeon

Atlanta Sciatica TreatmentSciatica is the pain that radiates from the lower back through the hips and buttocks, traveling down the sciatic nerve. Except in rare occasions, sciatica affects only one side of the body. Sciatica is a symptom of another cause, most commonly from a herniated disk or bone spur that is compressing part of a nerve in the spine. Sciatica is also a common complaint during pregnancy as excess weight gain and different postures put pressure on the spine. Complaints of sciatica are mild to severe and vary in duration from patient to patient. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we specialize in providing effective, long-term solutions to complex back problems, and we have different treatment options available for patients with sciatica.

For many people sciatica is a nuisance of a problem that usually goes away on its own. While the sensations of sciatica can be painful, they are often short lived and require no medical intervention. However, if pain lasts longer than a week, is severe, or becomes progressively worse it is imperative to seek medical care. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we offer minimally invasive treatments for sciatica. Our lower patient-to-provider ratio allows us to spend quality time with each patient in order to offer the most individualized treatment available. We are also a leader in minimally invasive spine surgery for those whose sciatica is caused by a bone spur or herniated disk that is pressing on a pinched nerve.

If you are suffering from sciatica's painful symptoms with little to no relief from at home care, contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule an appointment with one of our dedicated physicians. We offer expert treatment and strive to help you stay active and live your best life.
