Sciatica Treatment Options from Pain Specialists Serving Patients in Griffin, GA
Sciatica treatment can include anything from taking an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drug to having invasive surgery. Of course, the ideal treatment method will vary depending on the extent of the symptoms, as well as what the underlying cause of the sciatic nerve compression is. At Pain Care, we make it our mission to help people in Griffin, Georgia, and surrounding areas who have sciatica or other painful conditions to find the relief that they seek through personalized treatment plans.
When people living in Griffin, GA, need sciatica treatment, they turn to Pain Care. Our board-certified, experienced physicians may advise them to pursue any (or several) treatment options, including:
- Conservative treatment methods – We may recommend that patients try to use heat/cold therapy at the affected area, take anti-inflammatory medication, perform stretches that target specific muscles, and so on.
- Injections – If the sciatic nerve compression occurs in the spine, rather than lower down the nerve, we can inject cortisone into a precise area of the spine, often relieving people of their symptoms at least temporarily.
- Minimally invasive procedures – In cases where a herniated disc has caused sciatica, treatment might include the surgical removal of a portion of the affected intervertebral disc to alleviate the pressure it has placed on the spinal cord.
