SpineOne Treatments for sciaticaSciatica Overview:

Sciatica and sciatic pain is a symptom rather than a diagnosis. It may occur when nerve root(s) at the lumbar spine are compressed or damaged causing pain, burning, weakness, numbness or tingling in the low back or legs. Causes include herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome and spinal tumors.  Sciatic pain may occur in as much as 40 percent of the population.

Our physicians are experts in identifying the cause of your sciatica, and helping you create a treatment plan for care and long-term relief from sciatic pain. We offer same-day appointments and work with most insurance plans to help you feel better.
