More than four out of five people will suffer from back pain at some point in their lives. For some, this pain starts in their lower back and radiates down through their buttocks, hips, and legs. Others experience weakness or numbness in their legs or feet, making standing or walking more difficult with every passing day.

What Is Sciatica?

 Sciatica is pain caused by the compression of your sciatic nerve. Sciatic pain is usually caused by a herniated disc or bone spur in your lower spine, although it can also be caused by obesity, prolonged sitting, improperly carrying heavy loads, and sometimes by diseases like diabetes or a tumour. 

Do theses symptoms sound familiar? These are the uncomfortable effects of sciatica, and you need pain relief treatment immediately.

Is It Serious?

Some cases of sciatica can gradually fade over time. However, if your sciatica has made you miss work, limited your enjoyment of physical activities, is affecting your mood, or is keeping you from sleeping, then you should consult a pain relief specialist.

See a physician if:

  • You have missed work because of the pain
  • Been unaffected by painkillers (including opioids)
  • You have weakness or a loss of feeling in the affected leg
  • You experience a loss of bladder or bowel function


How Do You Treat It?

Sciatica can be combated with a combination of proper sitting posture and good body mechanics. When the pain is extreme, medication can provide immediate sciatica pain relief. For the elderly or those with chronic severe pain, more aggressive therapies are available for Vaughan residents through The Interventional Pain Specialists (TIPS). 


What Is The Best Treatment for Sciatica Pain?

 It depends on your unique circumstances. Often, you can regain full pain-free mobility without injections or invasive procedures to fast-track your healing and recovery. If your sciatica requires more aggressive interventions, our pain management specialists have extensive training to help you.

We offer effective medical treatments for back pain and sciatica that you can use alongside conservative treatments like physiotherapy, chiropractic care, corrective exercise, postural training, therapeutic massage treatments, and medications.

At TIPS, our team of experienced pain management physicians led by Dr. James C. Brown and Dr. Fernando Gonzalez Martinez will work with you to design a realistic and effective sciatica pain relief plan.
