Sciatica nerve is the main nerve that supplies blood to both the legs. It starts from the mid back and goes right down to the foot. Sciatica nerve has two branches, one providing supply to left and other to right foot. When there is inflamation or compression in this sciatica nerve then the person experiences pain which is called as Sciatica Pain. It is one of the most common types of back pain that patients present with, at our New Delhi Clinic. The best thing about sciatica nerve pain is that in 70 - 80% of the cases it can be treated through medication and physiotherapy. Our team of physiotherapists work very closely with the patient and they have been continuously delivering best results for patients coming for treatment at our clinic in New Delhi.
The most common symptoms of sciatica pain is lower back pain radiating down to hips and legs. Other symptoms may include:
Numbness or tingling sensation
Weakness or heaviness in leg
Pain and stiffness while turning on sides or bending
Sciatica Pain can be due to nerve root compression, inflamation of scaitica nerve, degenerative disc disease or due to disc herniation. Most of the cases can be treated through conservative approach and the best results can be seen in few weeks time. However, there are certain conditions that need microscopic surgery for relieving the sciatica pain.
Dr Sudeep Jain's philosophy is to treat the disease as per the root cause. He is one doctor who would recommend any surgery only when conservative management has failed or is expected to be ineffective. In most of the cases an MRI of lumbar spine may be needed to diagnose the problem. In case the patient has severe nerve root compression which can be due to herniated disc or bulge in disc or degenerative disc disease then the best option of treatment would be an endoscopic or microscopic surgery. Dr Sudeep Jain is one of the best exponents and pioneers of endoscopic surgery in India. The results of endoscopic surgery are way better as compared to open surgery. The stay is for just couple of days.
