Back Pain & Sciatica

Advanced Pain Management recognizes that back pain and chronic pain can vary greatly from patient to patient. We work closely with each individual to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their specific needs.

Why Does Back Pain Happen?

Back pain can occur for many different reasons, and it's one of the most common reasons that patients seek medical assistance today. It's often caused by:

  • Irritated nerves - including sciatica

  • Pinched nerves

  • Strained muscles around the spinal cord

  • Disc injury

  • Degenerative Disc Disease

  • Arthritis

  • Osteoporosis

  • Poor posture

What Are the Options for Back Pain Treatment?

Thanks to advanced research and scientific advances, there is now a wide range of highly effective treatments for back pain. Some of the treatment options offered at Advanced Pain Management Center include:​

  • Interlaminar Epidural Steroid Injection

  • Transforaminal Epidural Steroid Injection

  • Trigger point injections

  • Radiofrequency rhizotomy

  • Facet Medial Branch Block

Other treatment options are also available as needed. Some patients respond best to a combination of therapy types.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is generally caused by an underlying condition such as spinal stenosis, a herniated disc, a pinched nerve, or arthritis. Sciatica results from irritation of the nerve roots connected to the sciatic nerve. Because the sciatic nerve is the biggest of the body's nerves, it has a major impact on back pain, leg pain, and even heel pain in many cases. This nerve starts around the base of the spine, in the lower back. It ends at the bottom of the foot, at the heel. Some of the symptoms of sciatica include:

  • Pain in the lower back, buttocks, leg, or even heel

  • Tingling in the lower back, buttocks, or leg, or heel

  • Numbness in the lower back, buttocks, or leg, or heel

What is the Treatment for Sciatica?

Sciatica is treated by first diagnosing what caused it. Once the underlying condition is found, treatment often involves options like NSAID medications, steroid injections, and physical therapy. Patients don't have to live with sciatica or any other type of back pain any longer.
