Sciatica treatment is one of our many specialties at The Spine Center at Precision Pain Care in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Founded by board-certified pain medicine specialist and anesthesiologist Dr. Graf Hilgenhurst, our practice is a leader in minimally invasive spine care. If you are experiencing signs of sciatica, or if you have been diagnosed with sciatica and conservative treatment is not relieving your discomfort, we encourage you to consult with the specialists at Precision Pain Care.
Sciatica isn’t actually a disease or an injury. Rather, it is a specific set of symptoms that occurs when the sciatic nerve – the largest and longest nerve in the body – becomes compressed as a result of an injury or the body’s natural aging process. The sciatic nerve begins at the base of the spine and splits to run down each leg. When it is compressed, shooting pain, tingling sensations, radiating discomfort, and muscle weakness can occur in the lower body.
Dr. Hilgenhurst utilizes interventional pain management techniques and minimally invasive spine procedures to relieve sciatic nerve compression and help patients in Murfreesboro, TN, get back on the move. Each patient’s ideal sciatica treatment plan will vary, but many patients are able to benefit from advanced therapies such as anti-inflammatory injections, nerve block procedures, and radiofrequency neurotomy.
