SpineOne uses a varied approach to sciatica pain relief, depending on the patient’s history, activity level, and diagnosis. Our team of physicians and physical therapists collaborate to learn the cause of sciatic pain and use diagnostic imaging (such as X-Ray or MRI) to confirm a diagnoses before outlining a treatment plan.
A large percentage of patients benefit from conservative treatments, such as physical therapy, home exercise, and oral medications. These treatments can often relieve sciatica caused by inactivity, over-activity, anatomical imbalances, or muscle tightness.
For those patients suffering from sciatica caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or ankylosing spondylitis, our spine specialists may recommend minimally-invasive procedures (such as injections or ablations) to address severe, debilitating pain so that therapy and exercise can be resumed.
These treatments provide effective, and long-lasting relief from sciatic pain without relying on invasive surgery or habit-forming medications.
