Sciatica is not a condition but a distinct group of symptoms that can occur when the sciatic nerve – the longest and largest nerve in the body – becomes compressed as a result of degenerative disc disease, disc injuries, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, and other common ailments. Consult a doctor if you are experiencing bothersome symptoms that are consistent with sciatica, such as:

  • Localized pain or pain that travels the length of the nerve (from the base of the spine down one or both legs, although only one side is usually affected)
  • Muscle weakness in the lower body
  • Numbness and tingling sensations in the lower body

Sciatica treatment at ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities is tailored to the individual needs of each patient. Depending on the extent of the compression and the patient’s lifestyle, a number of conservative approaches may be recommended, including pain medication, physical therapy and corticosteroid injections. Surgery to remove the structure that is pressing on the sciatic nerve may be recommended in the most severe cases. Whatever type of sciatica treatment is appropriate for your case, rest assured your ORA doctor will provide personalized, compassionate care from diagnosis through recovery.
