Find Sciatica Relief at AIMS Clinic


Hip PainThe sciatic nerve is the longest and largest nerve in the body. It starts near the pelvis and runs the entire length of each leg. When this nerve is compressed or pinched due to a spinal disorder – such as a herniated disc – it can cause severe pain. While some people grow accustomed to living with sciatic nerve pain, if left untreated, it can lead to long-term damage. If you know or suspect you’re suffering from this condition, seek diagnosis and treatment from the qualified professionals at AIMS Clinic in East Brunswick, NJ.

Sciatica Symptoms
Most patients with sciatica experience a sharp, sudden shooting pain in their leg. Because of how large the sciatic nerve is, it’s common to have pain anywhere in the hip, thigh, buttock, knee, calf, ankle and foot. It can vary in intensity, ranging from a dull ache to a sharp electric shock-like sensation. Others experience numbness, pins and needles or have trouble straightening their leg. This pain might last a few hours, days or even weeks.

Causes of Sciatica
Aside from a herniated disc, other common causes of sciatica are:

  • Lumbar Spinal Stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Trauma or Injury
  • Spinal Tumor
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Arthritis
  • Pregnancy And Child Birth
  • Diabetes
  • Constipation
  • Vitamin Deficiencies
  • Degeneration

Sciatic Nerve Pain Relief
Some people suffering from sciatica delay treatment because they think surgery is the only option. However, there are actually many different ways to help relieve pain and restore normalcy. Our medical staff will work with you to create a personalized treatment plan based on your specific needs, which may include any of the following:

  • Physical Therapy: Custom exercise programs to improve strength, flexibility and movement
  • Deep Tissue Massage: Releases tension in soft tissues to reduce muscle spasms
  • Ice/Cold Therapy: Reduces inflammation to help control sciatic pain
  • Ultrasound: Sound waves produce gentle heat that penetrates deep into tissues in order to improve circulation and reduce muscle spasms, cramping, swelling, stiffness and pain
  • TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Unit: Uses electric currents to alleviate pain and spasms
  • Chiropractic Adjustments: Spinal manipulations help correct misalignments and remove stress from the nerves
  • Nonsurgical Spinal Decompression: Utilizes a special chiropractic table to manipulate the spine and reduce pressure on the discs and sciatic nerve
  • Supports: Adjustments to your office chair, mattress and other furniture can prevent slouching and reduce stress on the lower back
  • Acupuncture: Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments, like acupuncture and herbal medicine, can help restore the body’s natural balance
  • Diet Changes: Some foods contain ingredients and chemicals that can trigger pain, cause inflammation and contribute to obesity – all of which can aggravate sciatica
