Lumbar Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve) Kennesaw, GA

Lumbar Radiculopathy (Pinched Nerve)

Nerves are the indicators of pain and sensation. When a nerve is compressed or put under pressure, it causes acute or chronic pain. Lumbar radiculopathy, or nerve root compression, can cause pain in the lower back, buttocks, groin and legs. Our team at Medici Medical Arts can help diagnose and treat lumbar radiculopathy at our clinics in the Atlanta area.

In the lumbar spine, nerves exit the spinal column and continue their journey to other lower extremities. Each nerve is responsible for a different area of muscles, skin and tissue. When the nerve root is damaged, compressed or irritated as it leaves the lumbar spine, it is called lumbar radiculopathy, or a pinched nerve.

It can result in localized lower back pain but also causes pain or weakness in the muscles the nerve serves in the buttock, groin, legs or even the feet. There are several spinal and musculoskeletal conditions that create nerve root compression. Identifying the cause of the nerve irritation is key to finding the right treatment to stop the pain.

Causes of Lumbar Nerve Root Compression

Each lumbar vertebra has a different nerve that exits the spinal column. The largest nerve is the sciatic nerve, which is the most common nerve to be affected by compression. The area of pain, tingling or weakness felt by the patient, along with imaging and other diagnostic tools, can help determine the source of nerve root compression or irritation. Some common causes include spondylosis, herniated discs, compression fractures and degenerative disc disease.

Treatments for lumbar pinched nerves can vary drastically, depending on the cause of the nerve compression. Conservative treatments include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory injections, medication management and electrical stimulation. Severe cases may require surgical intervention. We offer minimally-invasive spine surgery if conservative treatments are not effective for treating the source of pain.

If you have lower back nerve pain, contact us at Medici Medical Arts. We will help identify the source and create a well-rounded treatment plan to give you long-term relief and improve your quality of life.

We can help you!

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Medical Arts both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.

I am thrilled with the care I have received from Dr. Dosanjh. He has a fabulous staff that is caring and attentive. I had serious back pain that was hindering my quality of life. Now I am on my way to being discharged. I am very thankful for all they did for me. I will not miss the pain I was in but there is no doubt that l will miss them.
