Is Sciatica Slowing You Down?

spine healthWe consult with patients dealing with almost every back or neck issue imaginable. Sciatica, for example, is a problem that plagues many people.

Recently, we met with a patient who had sciatica originating in her spine and radiating all the way down her left leg to her foot. This resulted in a variety of symptoms, including but not limited to:

·      Tingling and numbness

·      Foot falling asleep

·      The feeling of electric shocks in her left hip and ankle

·      Moderate pain in the lower back

After living with these symptoms for more than 20 years, we were able to implement a treatment strategy to help her find relief.

Approximately two weeks after surgery, she noted that her pain was almost gone and her symptoms were eliminated.

If sciatica is slowing you down, don’t assume that you have to live with the pain and side effects for the rest of your life. There are a variety of treatment options to consider, with surgery an option in many cases.
