If you’re living with sciatica you already know how painful it can be, but you may not realize that sciatica isn’t a medical diagnosis. It’s a symptom of a larger medical condition, such as a herniated disc, bone spur, bulging disc, pinched nerve or spinal stenosis. Sciatica refers to the sciatic nerve that begins in the lower back and travels down each leg and into the feet and toes. When the nerve becomes pinched due to an underlying condition, a number of different symptoms can occur.
Symptoms of sciatica typically present on only one side, but can occur in both legs. They include: general pain that worsens when sitting, a burning or tingling sensation running down the leg, chronic pain in the leg or buttock, sharp stabbing pains when walking or standing, or weakness that makes moving the leg difficult.
The Bonati Spine Procedures can provide immediate relief with sciatica treatment, especially if your symptoms of sciatica pain are related to a herniated or bulging lower lumbar inter-vertebral disc that is compressing one of the nerve roots before it joins the sciatic nerve. Our sciatica surgeries are an excellent alternative to open back surgeries that often result in long recuperation times.
The Bonati Spine Institute advocates patients suffering from sciatica to be well informed. We encourage you to contact us to request a no-obligation MRI review or discussion with one of our medical professionals.
