An Initial Consultation
Patients who are dealing with sciatica and who are looking for an effective form of relief from their symptoms should contact the Gulf Coast Spine Care center for an initial consultation. Through this initial consultation, the cause of the condition can be identified, and an effective treatment plan can be explored. While the team at Gulf Coast Spine Care offers surgical treatment options for sciatica, other options are often explored fully before surgery is recommended. In severe cases, surgery may be the best option, and it can improve the patient's quality of life by easing or eliminating symptoms.
Different Sciatic Treatments
There are many causes of sciatica, and often the treatment plan that is best for the patient will be determined by the cause of the condition, the severity of the symptoms, the patient's preferences and other factors.
Sciatica is a condition that is caused by compression of the nerves. This can create pain, numbness and tingling in the lower extremities and the symptoms can be mild or severe. This nerve compression may be caused by everything from poor posture and pregnancy to a traumatic accident and other events. It may be alleviated by improving body mechanics, through therapeutic massage or other non-surgical efforts. Severe cases of sciatica, however, often require surgery. Through surgery, the pressure on the nerve is relieved, providing almost immediate relief of the pain and other symptoms.
