Sometimes when pressure is present on a nerve root, pain is perceived. Sciatica is a low back condition arising from pressure on lumbar (lower back vertabrae) which can cause discomfort, numbness, or weakness in the area of the body where the nerve travels.
This is commonly referred to as sciatica and is the most common symptom of a herniated disc in the low back.
Additionally we use tests including MRI scan or NCV (Nerve Conduction Velocity) to confirm or rule out a herniated disc. We specialize in providing you with comprehensive treatment so you can live up to all your activities free of pain.
