Sciatic Nerve Pain Treatment from a Board-Certified Physician in Nashville, TN
Are you tired of living with sciatic nerve pain? If so, consider visiting The Spine Center at Precision Pain Care in Nashville, Tennessee. Since 2006, board-certified pain medicine specialist and anesthesiologist Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst has helped sciatica patients get back to better with the latest advances in interventional pain techniques.
Sciatica isn’t a condition, per say. It is actually a distinct group of symptoms that typically occur when the sciatic nerve (the largest nerve in the body) becomes compressed. Some of the symptoms that characterize sciatica include:
- Shooting or radiating pain that travels down the path of the nerve (from the lower back down one or both legs)
- Numbness or tingling sensations in the buttocks and/or legs
- Foot numbness
- Muscle weakness in the lower body
Patients at Precision Pain Care in Nashville, TN, benefit from Dr. Hilgenhurst’s conservative approach to treatment. Instead of prescribing heavy doses of potentially addictive narcotics or suggesting invasive surgeries to treat sciatic nerve pain, Dr. Hilgenhurst prefers minimally invasive procedures to reduce compression on the sciatic nerve and relieve subsequent discomfort. When performing minimally invasive procedures at the surgery center, Dr. Hilgenhurst utilizes advanced fluoroscopic guidance to improve surgical precision and effectiveness.
