Back(Sciatica) Pain Management

Do you suffer from pain that travels down from your lower back into your buttocks and leg? If so, you may be suffering from sciatica and a sciatic nerve block could help relieve your pain.

The term Sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain—and possibly tingling, numbness, or weakness—that originate in the lower back and travel through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of each leg.Sciatica (pronounced sigh-at-eh-kah) is not a medical diagnosis in and of itself—it is a symptom of an underlying medical condition. Common lower back problems that can cause sciatica symptoms include a lumbar herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or spinal stenosis.The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the body, running from the pelvis through the hips and buttocks and down the back of each leg. The sciatic nerve transmits sensory information from the legs to the spinal cord. It also provides motor control for the lower extremities. The sciatic nerve is comprised of multiple bundles of nerves.

Many times due to swelling or prolapse of an intervertebral disc(the shock absorber between two backbones), there can be severe pain in the back spreading one or both the legs.Such patients can benefit from nerve blocks and can avoid back surgery.Even patients who continue to suffer from pain even after surgery(post-laminectomy pain) can benefit from treatment at Meenakshi Pain Management Center, located in Nigdi and Baner in Pune.Sciatica is often characterized by one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg (rarely in both legs)
  • Pain that is worse when sitting
  • Leg pain that is often described as burning, tingling, or searing (versus a dull ache)
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg, foot, and/or toes
  • A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or walk
  • Pain that radiates down the leg and possibly into the foot and toes (it rarely occurs only in the foot)

At Meenakshi Pain Management Center, we have treated several patients with Back Pain and Sciatica. Dr. Yashwant Nankar & Dr. Meenakshi Nankar has experience of several years to treat the patients of Back Pain(Sciatica).

Our Treatments on Sciatica/Back Pain

Spinal Cord Stimulator

A Spinal Cord Stimulator or Dorsal Column Stimulator is a type of implantable neuromodulation device that is used to send electrical signals to select areas of the spinal cord for the treatment of certain pain conditions.It is consideration for people who have a pain condition not responded to conservative therapy.

Nerve Root Block

A nerve root block is an injection of local anesthetic (numbing medicine) and steroid injected under X-ray guidance into the area where the nerve exits the spinal column. A nerve root block is usually ordered by your doctor for pain in the arm or leg that follows the path of a single nerve.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is a medical procedure in which part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from medium frequency alternating current.

Epidural Injection

Epidural steroid injection is a technique in which corticosteroids and a local anesthetic are injected into the epidural space around the spinal cord in an effort to improve spinal stenosis, spinal disc herniation, or
both.

Neuromodulation

Neuromodulation is "the alteration of nerve activity through targeted delivery of a stimulus, such as electrical stimulation or chemical agents, to specific neurological sites in the body".

Electrical Nerve Stimulation

Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a therapy that uses low-voltage electrical current for pain relief.TENS is typically done with a TENS unit, a small battery-operated device.
