Sciatic pain can be controlled so you can get your life back.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 19, 2016
Advocate Pain Management Center, one of the most comprehensive pain management clinics in the great Houston area, is now treating sciatica. Sciatica refers to radiating pain in the back, hips and legs. It is caused by the compression or irritation of the spinal nerve root in the lower back. The pain distribution follows the sciatic nerve from the lumbar spine to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet. An injury to the lumbar spine can cause a number of symptoms in the lower body, and can develop suddenly or over time.
The two primary causes of sciatica are a herniated disc and degenerative disc disease, but there are also other conditions which can pinch the spinal nerve and cause sciatica. Some of these are bone spurs, narrowing of the spinal canal, injury and infection. Early diagnosis is very important to enable proper diagnosis and treatment. Use of X-rays, CT scans and MRI can all be used to diagnose this condition. Once properly diagnosed, treatments include physical therapy, reasonable narcotics and cortisone. These methods are very effective at avoiding costly and painful surgery.
