Sciatica (Lumbar Radiculopathy) Kennesaw, GA

Sciatica (Lumbar Radiculopathy)

The largest nerves in the body are the two sciatic nerves that travel from the lower spine through the pelvis to the legs. These large nerves are the pathway for signals sent through the spinal cord, affecting the lower (lumbar) back, buttocks and legs. When there is compression or pressure on this nerve, it is called lumbar radiculopathy, or sciatica. Our pain physicians at Medici Medical Arts can help diagnose sciatica and provide effective treatment to give patients relief from chronic pain issues.

Sciatica occurs when inflammation, injury or disease creates pressure or irritation on the sciatic nerve. Usually, only one of the sciatic nerves is affected, so symptoms are on one side of the body. Sciatica symptoms include:

  • Radiating pain through the lower back, buttocks and leg on one side of the body
  • Weakness in the hip or leg on one side
  • A burning, tingling or numbness traveling from the lower back through the pelvis and upper leg

Sciatica generally affects the upper thigh but can radiate down as far as the foot. The symptoms may become worse when standing after sitting for long periods. In severe cases, sciatic pain and weakness can make walking or moving impossible until the symptoms subside.

Treatments for Lumbar Radiculopathy

Sciatica does not have a treatment, but by finding the cause of the lumbar radiculopathy, the source can be treated. There are several lower spine and back conditions that cause sciatica, including:

  • Herniated or bulging discs
  • Piriformis syndrome
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Spinal stenosis

Treating the underlying cause can reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve and offer relief from sciatica. Our team at Medici Medical Arts can help determine the source of sciatica pain. They will find the least invasive treatment option to alleviate symptoms and improve the overall health of our patients.

If you suffer from sciatica and want to find effective treatments to give you relief, come visit us at Medici Medical Arts. We have convenient locations in in the greater Atlanta area for sciatica treatment.

He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

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.

Meredith

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.

Jill C.

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!

Tiffany

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.

Christina S.

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.
