What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is usually caused by a herniated disk in your lower back. When a disk becomes herniated, it starts to put pressure on the nerves around it. If a herniated disc puts pressure on the sciatic nerve, it can cause a lot of pain and discomfort and is classified as sciatica.
Sciatica can also be caused by spinal stenosis, which is a narrowing of the spine or a bone spur in the spine. Spinal stenosis and bone spurs can cause inflammation of the sciatic nerve, which can lead to radiating pain and numbness in the legs.

Do You Have Sciatica?
The biggest sign that you have sciatica is that you'll experience pain that radiates from your lower back, down your buttock, and into your leg. The pain from sciatica can vary from being mild to excruciating, and usually only one side of the body is affected.
If you're experiencing symptoms of sciatica that are getting worse or persisting for more than a couple of weeks, you need to reach out and seek medical attention. It's especially important to seek immediate medical attention if your sciatic pain is associated with sudden numbness or loss of control over your bladder or bowels.
We offer a variety of treatments to help with your sciatica. Before we begin your treatment, we'll set up a consultation to go over what you've been experiencing and try to diagnose the root cause of your sciatica. Once we have a diagnosis, we'll suggest a treatment plan that best suits your individual needs. We have multiple treatments to address sciatica. We use shockwave therapy, PRP therapy, pain management techniques, and physical rehabilitation to treat sciatica.
