Our patients benefit from the incredible expertise of physicians who utilize evidence-based techniques to provide well-rounded treatment for sciatica.
What Causes Sciatica?
Sciatica is not a disease or an injury. Rather, it is a distinct set of symptoms that occurs when the sciatic nerve – the longest and largest nerve in the body – becomes compressed by a surrounding component of the spine. This compression may stem from a bone spur, bulging or herniated disc, or shifting vertebra. There are several factors that may lead to these spinal problems, some of which include spinal stenosis and traumatic injury, as well as the body’s natural aging process.
How is Sciatica Treated?
Sciatica treatment focuses on taking pressure off of the sciatic nerve. Physicians Rehabilitation patients have access to several types of treatments to achieve this, including tailored physical therapy regimens, chiropractic care, spinal decompression, and even adult stem cell therapy. By merging multispecialty treatments with attentive care, our physicians are able to achieve optimal results for many sciatica patients without resorting to surgical intervention.
