Sciatica Nerve Pain Relief Plano
The nerve that travels from the lower back through the hips and buttocks and down each leg is the sciatic nerve. When pain radiates down the sciatic nerve, this condition is called Sciatica pain.
Sciatica can make simple tasks such as sitting, standing and walking difficult to perform. If you are experiencing sciatica pain, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our pain management team. However, if your pain has evolved into these symptoms, we recommend you get immediate care:
- Severe pain
- Sudden pain after a violent injury
- Trouble controlling bowels or bladder
Our pain management clinic is conveniently located in Plano and offers complete care for sciatica nerve pain relief.
Causes of Sciatica Nerve Pain

- Diseases such as diabetes which can damage the nerve
Sciatica Nerve Pain Symptoms
A burning sensation that radiates from the lower back, down either leg to below the knee is the most common symptom of sciatica. Sciatica nerve pain usually starts with an irritated nerve. Symptoms can include:

Sciatica Nerve Pain Treatment
Sciatica can be treated with pain management techniques. Our Plano pain management physicians look for conservative treatments such as hot/cold compression packs, over the counter medications, and physical therapy.
