Sciatica (Sciatic Nerve Pain) is pain that starts in the low back and goes to one or both legs. It results from the 'sciatic nerve' (the nerve going to the leg) being pinched as it arises from nerve roots in the spinal canal. Causes of this pinching may include: herniated disc, foramina stenosis, spondylolisthesis.
Treatments for Sciatic Nerve Conditions
Each case is unique and after a careful evaluation, Dr. Siddiqi may recommend a combination of non-operative therapy and pain management if needed. Long term goals include learning about your injury and the best way to manage daily activity and return to an active lifestyle.
Spinal injections and or minimally invasive surgery may be indicated in some severe cases.
