Our Goal is Simple: To help as many people as possible avoid spine surgery.


Important Sciatica Pain Factsundefined

The sciatic nerve travels down the legs and into feet. Pressure can be put on this nerve from a herniated or bulging disc, pinched nerve, or slipped disc in the lower spine. This irritation can lead to symptoms that include radiating pain, burning, numbness, and tingling. This debilitating condition affects thousands every year.

Sciatica usually affects individuals between the ages of 30 and 50 years old. This condition develops slowly because of wear on the discs of the lower spine. Rarely does this condition require surgical intervention and the majority of people who experience sciatic pain can find relief with our advanced, non-surgical treatment.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica Pain

Sciatic symptoms are unique. For some, the pain can be debilitating yet, for others, the pain can come and go, bringing little disruption to the patients’ life. Most commonly the pain is centered on one side of the body, through the lower back and leg. The pain may even reach the foot, in certain instances.

As a result of pressure on your sciatic nerve, you may experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Pain in throughout the leg that gets worse when you sit
  • Burning or tingling sensations
  • Numbness or weakness that can lead to difficulty moving your leg or foot

It is important to keep in mind that your sciatic pain may radiate from a bulging, herniated, or pinched disc. A weakened disc can occur from a number of problems and weaknesses.

A New, Non-Surgical Technology Driven Treatment for Sciatica

You goal with treatment should be to minimize your pain by re-hydrating and re-nourishing the discs and nerves to find a more permanent solution to prevent more injuries. At ProMED Pain Rehabilitation Institute, our comprehensive non-surgical treatment can be very effective in treating your pain and preventing it from coming back.

It is important to remember that there are certain symptoms that may indicate a medical emergency. If the weakness in your leg gets worse, or if you experience bladder and/or bowel weakness of incontinence, this may be a symptom of cauda equine syndrome, a serious condition that requires immediate medical attention.

If sciatica occurs with any of the following complications, contact your doctor immediately:

  • If you have been diagnosed with any form of cancer
  • If you take steroid medication for any issue
  • If you abuse drugs, or if you have abused drugs in the past
  • If you have experienced unexplained and significant weight loss
  • If you suffer from HIV or AIDS
