Sciatica Overview

The term ‘Sciatica’ is commonly used to describe pain traveling in the distribution of the sciatic nerve.

Sciatica is a set of symptoms including pain that may be caused by general compression and/or
irritation of one of live nerve roots that give rise to the sciatic nerve or by compression or irritation
of the sciatic nerve itself.

Symptoms are felt in the lower back, buttock, and/or various parts of the leg
and foot. In addition to pain, which is sometimes severe, there may be numbness, muscular
weakness, pins and needles or tingling and difficulty in moving or controlling the leg.

Sciatica Overview

North American Spine’s AccuraScope® procedure treats Sciatica

The AccuraScope procedure treats Sciatica by relieving the pressure caused by bulging discs, and repairing any tears on herniated discs.

Most patients feel immediate relief after the outpatient AccuraScope procedure, and return to light activities the following day.

In some cases, Sciatica may result from pressure created by bone growths on the spinal canal. North American Spine can treat bone-related nerve pressure with the use of specialized, minimally invasive tools.

The best treatment for Sciatica is to identify and address the underlying cause. Allow North American Spine to help you by requesting a free MRI review.
