Sciatica Pain Relief
Performed by the award winning doctors in Phoenix, Scottsdale, Glendale, Chandler, and Surprise, Arizona
Sciatica is also called lower extremity (L5/S1) radiculitis or radiculopathy and is a condition characterized by weakness or sensory changes along the sciatic nerve pathway.
The sensory changes are often described as “pins and needles” and can extend down the buttock, leg and foot.
Symptoms of serious concern include severe nerve impingement, bladder incontinence, bowel incontinence, lower extremity weakness, and profound loss of sensation. Loss of bowel or bladder function with sensory deficits and weakness is termed “Cauda Equina Syndrome” and is a true medical emergency.
Treatments for sciatica pain relief include:
- Epidural Steroid Injections (ESI)
- Lysis of Adhesions
- Infusions Techniques
- Transcutaneous Electrical Stimulation (TENs)
