Are you tired of feeling constant pain, numbness, or tingling throughout your body due to sciatica? Resolute Pain Solutions may be able to provide you with the effective pain relief you need in the form of sciatica treatment.
Sciatica is a pain that is caused when the roots of your sciatic nerve become irritated or inflamed. Unfortunately, the sciatic nerve can affect a large portion of your body, including your lower back and legs. While there is no known cure for sciatica, there are ways to treat and relieve the pain and discomfort it causes. These treatments typically address the inflammation of the roots of the sciatic nerve.
Sciatica treatment will differ greatly from person to person, depending upon the severity of the pain and the patient’s overall health. There are many different ways to approach the pain and reduce the symptoms of sciatica. A treatment plan, for example, may include exercising and stretching techniques, physical therapy, massage therapy, heat therapy, pain medication, muscle relaxants or other medicines. Your Resolute pain team will order specific diagnostic tests, or you may be asked for copies of tests previously performed.
Additional tests and consultation with other medical experts may be required, and your Resolute pain team will direct your care, as indicated, to provide you with state-of-the-art treatment. When you seek sciatica treatment, your doctor will work with you to see which techniques provide the safest and most effective relief. For some patients, relieving the pain can be as simple as developing a supervised exercise program, while others may need pain relief in the form of medication via minimally invasive injection therapy.
Spinal cord stimulation is an effective pain control therapy for many patients. It may be used for pain in the arms, lower back, and legs. This therapy is also useful for neuropathy. Your Resolute pain team will provide you with information about this type of pain control therapy based upon the type of pain you have as well as your medical history.
While Discography is rarely indicated, your Resolute pain team may consider this diagnostic procedure in your treatment plan if we believe it may be helpful in your case.
The majority of sciatica treatment options have few side effects and potential risks. If the pain is quite severe, and pain relief medication is prescribed, these medications may cause side effects, most of which will typically be mild. When your sciatica treatment plan is designed, your physician will discuss in detail the exact side effects and potential risks for your specific treatments and medications.
