Sciatica is characterized as an irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve, a nerve that starts in the lower spine and travels into the leg and foot. Not all leg pain is sciatica, but sciatica involves leg pain.

If you are suffering from back pain come to Performance Spine & Sports Medicine for expert, quality sciatica treatment and care.

Often, patients come from other medical practices looking for a solution. We offer fully comprehensive medical care with our advanced regenerative medical treatments and integrated rehabilitation care from our best in class physicians and rehabilitation team of physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturist.
Sciatica pain can feel much like a “toothache” type pain, sometimes sharp, stabbing or “electric shocks” going down the leg or foot. At times the leg can cramp or have sensations of “pins and needles” going up and down the leg. The sciatic nerve can be inflamed by a bulging or herniated disc. However, degeneration of the spine can also irritate the nerve. If degeneration is severe enough, the sciatica pain can come from a condition called spinal stenosis.


Patients Reviews…

The entire staff at Performance Spine and Sports Medicine are very professional and the care that they provide is first rate. I have had PT and Chiropractic care in the past and I would rank this organization better in every way. The integrated model of having Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, massage therapists, and physicians under the same roof is very helpful and really facilitates interaction between all of the care providers. I would not hesitate to recommend this organization.

This is my second time at PSSM and the results are great once again. The staff was great and everyone is friendly and warm and most importantly they have gotten me back to pursuing my passion and work once again. I went in for a back problem and now I'm 90% back to normal and working on their stretches to make it 100%. No pain meds!!!!
