Lumbar Radiculopathy (Sciatica)

This condition is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Sciatica may result from a variety of problems with the bones and tissues of the lumbar spinal column. Our orthopedic surgeons at Nucci Medical diagnose the problem by physical exams. Treatment options include: medication, epidural steroid injections, and occasional surgery.
