Sciatica Surgery at SPINE/RX
What is Sciatica?
Sciatica is pain that occurs along the sciatic nerve, which stretches from your lower back to your hips, buttocks, and down each leg. It typically affects only one side, and can occur when part of the sciatic nerve becomes compressed by a herniated disc, bone spur, or narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis). Sciatica symptoms include inflammation, pain - which can be severe - numbness, and tingling.
How is Sciatica Treated?
Sciatica is most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Sciatica?
Surgery may be recommended for sciatica if it does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if you’re experiencing any of the following serious symptoms: disabling pain, severe weakness, or bowel or bladder issues. Surgery may also be recommended if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with sciatica can be painful, and cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve sciatica pain, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
