What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition that occurs due to irritation of the sciatic nerve, which runs down the lower area of the spine to the back of the thigh. Often, this irritation is a result of a herniated disc, damage to cartilage, a growth on the spine, or a narrowing of the lower spine (lumbar spinal stenosis). However, sciatica could also be a result of a tumor, infection, trauma, or sports injury. In most cases, the pain extends from the hips and back, all the way down one or both legs. At Tricity Pain Associates, our team of pain management specialists works to effectively diagnose sciatic nerve pain and the underlying cause in order to determine the ideal form of treatment. When sciatica is affecting your everyday life, it may be time to seek professional medical attention. Contact our San Antonio, TX to learn more and to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced physicians.

How is Sciatica Treated?

For more mild cases of sciatica, physical therapy and exercise may be able to effectively relieve pressure from the sciatic nerve. If these prove to be ineffective, then other forms of treatment may be recommended, such as medication, injections, or nerve stimulation therapy. During your thorough consultation at our San Antonio facility, your treatment options will be discussed with you and an optimal procedure plan will be created to provide long-term results and relief from sciatic nerve pain. Our team of pain management experts will help you understand your options to determine the best approach for your needs and concerns.
