Sciatica

Sciatica is a condition that causes pain in the lower back and legs due to compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve. This condition can be caused by a variety of factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or injury. At Texas Spine & Pain, we offer personalized treatment plans to help manage sciatica symptoms and improve overall quality of life for our patients.

Causes

Sciatica can be caused by a variety of factors, including herniated discs, spinal stenosis, or injury. These conditions can cause compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, resulting in pain, tingling, and numbness in the lower back and legs.

Common Issues

Sciatica can cause a range of symptoms, including pain, tingling, and numbness in the lower back and legs. Additionally, patients with sciatica may experience weakness in the legs, which can make it difficult to perform daily activities.

Treatment Options

At Texas Spine & Pain, we offer a range of treatment options to help manage sciatica symptoms. Our team of specialists works closely with each patient to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses their unique needs. Treatment options may include medication management, nerve blocks, physical therapy, and counseling.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

Non-surgical treatment options for sciatica include medications such as pain relievers, muscle relaxants, and anti-inflammatories. Additionally, physical therapy can be effective in helping to alleviate sciatica symptoms and improve overall mobility.

Surgical Treatment Options

Surgical treatment options for sciatica may include procedures such as laminectomy or discectomy, which can help relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. These procedures are typically reserved for patients who have not responded to non-surgical treatments.

Dr. Iqbal is the best pain management doctor I have ever had and will have. She does her homework first which I think makes the difference in diagnosis. She is the total package, a very smart and beautiful doctor, wife, and mother. Hand on Bible she changed my life, and I will forever be in debt to her. I can't say thank you enough. I appreciate her staff; they are all awesome as well. I laughed and cried in her office, but her smile and staff always made me feel welcome like part of their family. I would and will drive across country to see her. The referral to a new knee surgeon to fix a bad knee replacement was the best. I got a new knee, and it has been a huge blessing as well. Thank you, Dr. Iqbal and staff you all are 5 stars, in my life.

I visited this facility in January for severe back pain I was experiencing. The whole ordeal from beginning to end was amazing. I wish I had known about this place years ago before suffering from so much pain. Dr. Mehreen Iqbal, her assistant Michealle Dooley and their staff is the best. I had a procedure done on 1/17/24 and I no longer suffer from back pain and I'm able to walk again. I highly recommend this facility, 10 Stars!!!

My PCP recommended Dr. Mehreen and she was wonderful through out the entire injection process. She took her time explaining everything and was patient through out the process. In my opinion, she is the best pain management doc around.
