Despite a common misconception, sciatica is not a condition. In reality, sciatica is a symptom that develops from pressure against the sciatic nerve. As the largest nerve in the human body, the sciatic nerve runs from the lumbar back down through the lower extremities. When sciatic pain begins to negatively impact everyday tasks, patients residing in the Livingston area can turn to the accomplished spine surgeons of New Jersey Spine Specialists for the best care in northern New Jersey. Through the culmination of years of successful patient cases, the dedicated team at NJSS can administer the latest sciatica treatments for new and existing patients in the surrounding Essex County area. Don’t let sciatica pain prevent you from living life to the fullest. Recover and return to being you with help from New Jersey Spine Specialists!
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.
