How Does a Sciatica Occur?
Sciatica is lower back pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve path. This nerve branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down along each leg. Typically, this pain affects only one side of the body.
This problem can happen when the sciatic nerve is pinched, usually by a herniated disc or a bone spur. More rarely, the nerve can be compressed by a tumor or damaged by disease. Certain factors can put you at greater risk for developing this issue; these include being overweight, having a sedentary job, and suffering from diabetes.

We partner with you to create a personalized care regimen built with your well-being in mind. Sciatica pain treatments may include, but are not limited to:

What Results Can I Expect?
Sciatica can go away on its own without treatment. However, it typically takes six weeks to find complete relief from symptoms.
