Many individuals fail to realize that sciatica is not a condition. Rather sciatica is a symptom of leg pain related to pressure on the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body running from the lumbar back down through the lower extremities. When sciatic pain flares up or becomes unbearable, patients living in Morristown, NJ turn to the unmatched spine surgeons of New Jersey Spine Specialists (NJSS) for immediate medical attention, reliving debilitating pain and ultimately restoring their quality of life. The dedicated team at NJSS can provide new and existing patients in the surrounding Morris County area with the best treatment options to reduce pain from sciatica through medication and breakthrough minimally invasive procedures.
Sciatica often causes patients to experience radiating pain down one or both legs. Other symptoms include tingling in hands or feet, numbness, cramping or weak muscles. Patients also report experiencing immense pain sitting or bending. But in order to effectively treat sciatica, the highly trained and well-educated spine surgeons at New Jersey Spine Specialists first evaluate each patient for any underlying medical conditions that may further contribute to sciatica. These conditions often include degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, lumbar spinal stenosis, Piriformis syndrome, sacroiliac joint dysfunction, and spondylitis. Furthermore, spinal fracture, spinal tumor, muscle strain, a pinched nerve, herniated disc or slipped disc can also contribute to sciatica.
Dr. Mitchell Reiter, Dr. Mark Drzala, and Dr. Heidi Hullinger are all board-certified spine surgeons who comprise New Jersey Spine Specialists. Their decades of expertise and accreditations ensure that patients receive thorough and accurate diagnoses, proper care, and advanced treatment methods to effectively ease sciatica. The renowned spine surgeons all oversee each patient’s sciatica case while delivering the utmost compassion and care. NJSS uses the most advanced, state-of-the-art technology and medical equipment to conservatively treat sciatica, as well as a wide range of conditions such as bulging discs, slipped disc, pinched nerves and herniated disc.
The NJSS team devotes their practice to giving ideal care to each patient, and do so by affiliating their practice with both Mountainside Hospital in Montclair, NJ, Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ, and most recently at Morristown Medical Center. Our spine surgeons possess the skills to treat a broad spectrum of spine conditions and symptoms from using pain medications and non-surgical methods to treat sciatica and more severe spine cases.
