Sciatic pain is the result of inflammation or irritation of the sciatic nerve. This nerve begins in the low back, reaches through the piriformis muscle in the buttock, and continues down the back of the leg into the foot. It is a common pain condition characterized by numbness, tingling, and/or pain in the buttock that often radiates down the leg. Common causes of sciatic pain include degeneration in the lower spine, disc herniations, piriformis syndrome, and even stress.
Although the exact cause of sciatic pain can be difficult to diagnose, we offer a variety of interventional treatment options at the Revitalize Medical Center. These procedures include, but are not limited to, epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, and spinal cord stimulator implants.
