Portage Sciatica Pain Treatment 

Portage Sciatica Pain Treatment

For many people, pain feels like an inevitable part of aging. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Pain is a signal from the body letting the brain know that something is wrong. Fortunately, most of the time, this “something” can be healed with time and effective treatment and management interventions. At Pain Control Associates, LLC, we know how debilitating pain can be, especially sciatica pain. Our Portage sciatica pain treatment specialists can help you if you’re in need of relief. 

What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica pain is pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which runs down the lower back, through the hips, through the buttocks, and down each leg. Typically, people only report having sciatica pain on one side of their body, although some people experience pain in both legs. The pain occurs when a part of the sciatic nerve is compressed, most often from a bone spur or herniated disk. It is also possible for the nerve to be compressed as a result of a disease or condition, such as diabetes. 

Symptoms of Sciatica Pain

Sciatic pain can be debilitating. In some cases, the pain will be mild and aching; in other cases, sharp and burning. For some people, sciatica can be so painful that nearly any activity can lead to pain, ranging from sitting to sneezing, walking to performing any exercises. Sometimes, the symptoms of sciatica can be so severe that they contribute to loss of bowel or bladder control. 

Treatment and Pain Management for Sciatica

For those who are suffering from sciatica pain, effective treatment and management are key; as stated above, sciatica can be absolutely debilitating. Treatment and pain management options for sciatica vary depending upon the cause of sciatica pain, the patient’s health history, and the degree of pain suffered by the patient. Sciatica may be treated with:

  • Medication, including pain medicines and anti-inflammatory drugs, as well as muscle relaxants in some cases;
  • Physical therapy, including exercises to strengthen muscles and improve flexibility; 
  • Spinal injections, which can be used to reduce swelling and inflammation; and
  • Surgery, which is typically only used in severe cases where patients aren’t responding to other forms of pain treatment. Surgery may also be used to remove a tumor or growth that is causing the compression on the nerve.
