Gulf Coast Spine Care Begins Latest Sciatica Treatments
Date:5/31/2013

HOUSTON, May 31, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Finding relief from sciatica is imperative, and Gulf Coast Spine Care offers proven, effective treatment options for these individuals. Recently, the medical center has started offering additional treatment options for the benefit of its patients who suffer from this condition, and these treatments have provided patients with considerable improvement to their quality of life.

Understanding the Cause of Sciatica

The general cause of sciatica is pressure on the sciatic nerve. However, there are different factors that can cause this nerve to become pinched or compressed. In pregnancy, for example, pressure from the growing baby and uterus may pinch the nerve. After a car accident or another type of injury, the nerve may be pinched due to trauma to the spine. When patients visit Gulf Coast Spine Care, they will meet with a board-certified back surgeon who will take time to identify the cause of the sciatica. This is a key step to ensuring that the proper treatment plan is developed.

Different Treatment Options

There are several treatment options that may be suitable for those who suffer from sciatica. For example, in the case of pregnancy-induced sciatica, helping the mother cope with the symptoms until delivery is important. Surgical operation on the back is often not needed, as this issue will correct itself after the baby is born in most cases. In other cases, therapeutic massage may be enough to ease the pressure that is placed on the spine. However, in certain cases, surgery is the best option.

Treating Sciatica With Surgery

The team at Gulf Coast Spine Care understands that back surgery is not a preferred option for most people. Many would like to explore non-surgical options first if possible. However, many people suffer with severe and even debilitating sciatica for a considerable period of time because other options are not effective at treating this condition. Back surgery is designed to alleviate the source of pressure on the sciatic nerve. While there is recovery time associated with this type of surgery, the relief of sciatic symptoms is often immediate. When surgery is necessary it is imperative to seek the assistance of the proven team at Gulf Coast Spine Care.

Those who suffer from sciatica often describe nagging, bothersome symptoms like mild pain, numbness or tingling in the lower part of their body. With a moderate or severe case of sciatica, these symptoms can become horrendous to deal with, and they can make it almost impossible for some with this condition to get comfortable in any position.

Sciatica can be unbearable to deal with, but for many, this is a short-lived condition that may clear up on its own. For others, however, the symptoms are chronic or recurring, and there is a need to take more considerable steps to treat the condition. When individuals who are suffering from sciatica are interested in more in-depth treatment options, they can contact the team at Gulf Coast Spine Care to discuss treatment options that may be suitable for their condition.
