Sciatica Q & A

Sciatica is a painful condition that develops when there’s pressure on the sciatic nerve, the large nerve that travels from your lower back down into your buttocks and legs.

Pressure on the nerve can be the result of underlying issues like:

• Tumors
• Herniated disc
• Spinal stenosis
• Spondylolisthesis

You can also experience symptoms of sciatica-related pain if your sciatic nerve is chronically irritated or inflamed.
The hallmark symptom of sciatica is a sudden, intense pain that radiates from your lower back down into your legs with sudden movements, like a cough or sneeze.

You may also develop symptoms of sciatica like:

• Weakness
• Numbness
• Tingling sensations in the leg

You may also feel pain in your buttocks when sitting or walking for an extended period of time. It’s also possible to have pain in your hip as the result of sciatica.
After confirming your pain is the result of sciatica, Dr. Ali creates a treatment plan that focuses on easing pain and increasing your mobility.

If your pain is mild, Dr. Ali may initially recommend over-the-counter medications to ease pain and reduce inflammation. He can also suggest stretching exercises at home or through physical therapy to reduce pressure on your sciatic nerve.

If you have persistent or severe pain from sciatica, Dr. Ali may prescribe anti-inflammatory medicines and pain relievers. If oral medicines aren’t effective in relieving pain, you may need injections of steroids directly into your sciatic nerve to improve your quality of life.
When sciatica pain is chronic and not treatable with medications or injection therapy, Dr. Ali may refer you for a surgical consult. But, most cases of sciatica resolve with non-surgical options from Complete Pain & Spine Institute and surgery is a last resort for treating sciatica pain.

Dr. Ali works closely with you on lifestyle changes and non-surgical treatments to relieve sciatica pain before recommending surgery.
