Constant nerve pain on a daily basis can make it difficult to complete even the simplest of tasks. Sciatica, or constant nerve pain is a rare condition that less than 1% of the population experience. At Craig C. Callewart, M.D., Dr. Callewart strives to provide his patients with superior care and top-tier treatments for alleviating sciatica pain and restoring overall well-being.

What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a serious condition of the body signaling there is something wrong with the nerve.  A form of neuropathy, it is often associated with other spinal conditions that result from pressure being placed on the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is actually a grouping of nerves which branch from the lower back, through the hips, buttocks, and down both legs. These nerves are joined at the gluteal area of the spine to form the sciatic nerve. In most cases, sciatica only affects one side of the body. Sciatica, or radiculopathy, occurs when pressure is placed on one of the originating nerves – and it becomes compressed.

What Causes it?

Sciatic pain can derive from several possible spinal conditions. These can include herniated discs, bone spurs, and spinal stenosis.  These conditions can result for a variety of reasons including injury, strains, and accidents where force is applied to the nerve. The severity of pain may also vary from mild to severe and can be experienced intermittently to constantly. The pain caused from sciatica can occur alongside other symptoms including numbness, as well as weakness in the lower back and extremities.

Symptoms of Sciatica

Other symptoms may include:

  • Pain that usually affects one of the lower extremities
  • Traveling pain through the hips, back of legs, and/or bottom of feet
  • Electrical pain
  • Aches that linger
  • Tingling
  • Sharp burning
  • Numbness in the affected leg
  • Weakness in the lower back, leg, or hip

Our Approach

Dr. Callewart understands how pain affects the whole body and everyday life. He takes a personalized approach to treating your specific spinal issues with a customized plan tailored to you and your specific needs. Since sciatic pain is a potential indicator of other spinal conditions, it is necessary to first diagnose the source of pressure on the associated nerves in order to treat the pain efficiently. Treatments can range from non-operative – or if severe enough, may require a surgical solution. Whatever the case, Dr. Callewart  will work with you one-on-one throughout each step of your wellness journey.
