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 Hackensack turn to the unmatched spine surgeons of New Jersey Spine Specialists for immediate medical attention, relieving debilitating pain and ultimately restoring their quality of life. The dedicated team at NJSS can provide new and existing patients in the surrounding Bergen 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 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 Spondylosis. Furthermore, spinal fracture, spinal tumor, muscle strain, a pinched nerve, herniated disc or slipped disc can also contribute to sciatica.
When it comes to world-class care and compassion, no other spine center rivals NJSS. Dr. Mitchell Reiter, Dr. Mark Drzala, and Dr. Heidi Hullinger are all board-certified spine surgeons who make up New Jersey Spine Specialists.
