Sciatica Treatment in Issaquah, WA

Are You a Candidate For Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression?

Understanding Sciatica Pain

Sciatica manifests as pain originating from the lower back and radiating down one leg, often extending into the foot and toes. This discomfort stems from irritation of the sciatic nerve due to compression.

Symptoms and Severity

In addition to pain, individuals with sciatica may experience burning, tickling, or prickling sensations, typically on one side of the body. The intensity and type of pain depend on the location of nerve compression.
While some may endure mild discomfort, others experience severe and debilitating pain. Although most recover within a few weeks, symptoms can worsen or persist longer depending on the underlying cause.

Sciatica and Nerve Damage

While rare, sciatica can lead to permanent nerve damage in some cases. However, the reversible nature of nerve irritation underlying sciatica pain is more common.
Indications of a more serious condition include bladder or bowel incontinence, progressive weakness, or loss of leg sensation.

Sciatic Nerve Location

The sciatic nerves, the body’s longest, extend from the lower back to the toes. Exiting the spine between two vertebrae, they travel behind the hip joint, down the buttock, and along the back of each leg into the foot.
Sciatica arises from irritation of one or both of these nerves, often due to pressure from a herniated disc. Other causes include spinal tumors, spondylolisthesis, trauma, spinal stenosis, or sciatic nerve injury.

Incidence of Sciatica

While sedentary individuals are at higher risk, active individuals can also develop sciatica, especially if engaging in activities involving back twisting or heavy lifting.
Most cases resolve within weeks, with treatment options such as exercise, physical therapy, and corticosteroid injections. For persistent pain, individualized treatment plans are advised.

Sciatica Treatment Options

Another treatment option is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment, which can alleviate pressure on the involved spinal discs, relieving sciatic nerve pressure and pain.
If you or someone you know is grappling with sciatica, reach out for a complimentary consultation. Our medical professionals can assess whether gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment is a suitable option for alleviating sciatica and other spinal issues.

Dr. Lee is a fantastic and caring provider. I had suffered significant back issues and Dr. Lee made time in his schedule at the last minute, followed up after hours to see how I was doing, and even came in on a day off. Can’t recommend him enough.

I have been coming to MySpine for years and there is absolutely no one I would rather go to! Dr. Lee is both knowledgeable and kind. He’s helped me with so many things over the years. I am a chronic migraine sufferer and his help has decreased those dramatically. His staff is also very kind and helpful and the entire office has always helped me with insurance when necessary. I would highly recommend this clinic.
