Dyer Sciatica Pain Treatment

Dyer Sciatica Pain Treatment

One of the most painful conditions from which a person can suffer is that of sciatica, which can affect people of all ages but typically affects those who are middle-aged or elderly. Sciatica can be so painful that it not only prevents a person from engaging in activities that are fun and healthy, like going on a hike or heading to the gym, but can also prevent a person from doing anything, confining them to bed in the most severe of cases. At the office of Pain Control Associates, LLC, we know how terrible sciatic pain can be to live with, and we want to help. Reach out to our Dyer sciatic pain treatment professionals today for information about how our doctors can serve you. 

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica refers to pain that is caused by the sciatic nerve and therefore radiates along the same path as the sciatic nerve – from the lower back, through the hip and buttocks, and down the leg. Typically, sciatic nerve pain only affects one side of the body. 

The pain associated with sciatica is the result of the sciatic nerve being compressed. This compression may be the result of a herniated disk, a bone spur on the spine, spinal stenosis, or another reason, such as an accident. 

Symptoms of Sciatic Nerve Compression

When the sciatic nerve is compressed, pain isn’t the only symptoms that a sufferer may experience. Instead, pain may be accompanied by a feeling of weakness in the affected leg, a burning sensation, or a feeling of an electric shock. In some cases, sciatic can interfere with regular bowel and bladder movements. If this is the case for you, it’s time to seek medical care now.

Management of Sciatic Pain

In many cases, the symptoms of sciatica will be temporary and will clear up on their own in a few days’ or a few weeks’ time. However, this isn’t always the case and, sometimes, sciatica requires more targeted treatment. There are a variety of treatment options that may be employed to provide sciatic nerve pain relief, including:

  • Over-the-counter pain management medications;
  • Prescription pain management medications;
  • Physical therapy, including exercises to improve posture, strengthen back muscles, and improve flexibility and mobility;
  • Steroid injections;
  • Lifestyle and home remedies, including the use of hot or cold packs and stretching;
  • Alternative therapies, such as acupuncture or massage; and
  • Surgery, which is typically only used in the event that all other therapies are ineffective at alleviating pain.
