Treating Sciatic Pain Daniel Yadagar Interventional Pain Management Physician
Hi, I'm Daniel Yadegar,Â I'm anInterventional pain management specialist with the Orlin and Cohen Orthopedic Group.More often than not people ask me what exactly is interventional pain managementéInterventional pain management is a discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatmentof pain related disorders. Â Our goal is to relieve, reduce, or managepain and improve a patient's overall quality of life. This is accomplished by utilizinga multidisciplinary approach,Â in which a team of health care professionals workÂ togetherÂ toprovide a full range of treatment optionsÂ and services for patients suffering from chronicandor acute pain.Â
Common musculoskeletal pain disorders include:Back, Hip, and Leg Pain Neck, Shoulder and Arm Painâ€œWhiplashâ€� Injuries Work Related InjuriesSports Injuries Failed Back Surgery and Other Post SurgicalPain Syndromes Myofascial PainFacet Syndrome Sacroiliac Joint Pain Today I will be briefly talking about backpain with sciatica (or pain radiating down the leg).Â This is a common complaint thatwe encounter on a daily basis. Sciatic pain
results when injury or pressure have compressedthe spinal roots or nerves that branch off the spinal cord in the lower region of thespine.Â Sciatic painÂ can be described as sharp, dull,burning, tingly, numb, continuous, or intermittent and usually affects only one side of the body.Â There may be associatedÂ weakness in the affected limb as well.Sciatic pain is most often the result of aÂ herniated disc,Â spinal stenosis, orÂ narrowing of thespinal canal associated with arthritis or bony overgrowth, or in extremely rare cases,infection or tumor. An initial work up including a detailed andcomprehensive history and physical examÂ is
the first step in diagnosis.Â Further workup may be needed such as imaging studies (which include xrays, MRIs CT scans) and or nervestudy testing. Once the diagnosis of the cause of sciaticahas been determined, a treatment plan is then established.Â Most cases of back pain resolvewith nonsurgical treatment. Â Some of the most common nonsurgical treatment optionsthat we utilize are physical therapy and exercise, medication management and spinal injections.As an interventional pain physician, I am trained through the use of xray guidanceor flouroscopy to deliver potent medications targeted specifically to the affected siteof inflammation in the spine. Â The use of
flouroscopy allows the medication to be placedsafely and precisely.Â These procedures are done as an outpatient in our accredited flouroscopysuite, which is fully staffed with certified personnel and licensed anesthesiologists.Â Other common procedures that we are trained to administer for appropriate musculoskeletalproblems include: Cervical, thoracic, and caudal Epidural SteroidInjections Facet Joint InjectionsÂ Medial Branch or Nerve Blocks Radiofrequency AblationÂ SacroiIiac Joint injections Hip InjectionsTrigger Point Injections
