Sciatica is one of the most common ailments treated by doctors at our practice. It is a painful condition that often originates in the lower back or buttock area and travels down through one or even both legs to the side or back part of the thigh and sometimes extents to the feet. There are two sciatic nerves in the body, one on the left and one on the right. Sciatic pain can vary in intensity from minimal to intense. It can come and go frequently, or at times last consistently for days or even weeks. The physician team at Nashville Spine and Disc are trained professionals in the best treatment protocol that has produced optimal results over time. The ideal remedy is to use a natural approach. TENS units, ultrasound, gentle spinal adjustments, and temperature alternations of cold and hot therapy have produced superior results with low risk of complications.
Sciatic pain is often described as dull, achy, sharp, pins and needles that are similar both to toothache-like pain and electric shocks. There can also be an onset of burning, numbness and tingling sensations. Sciatica itself is not actually a disorder but rather a symptom of a disorder. Sciatica is also known as radiating or referred pain, neuropathy and neuralgia.
