Sciatica Treatment Laramie
Seek Top-Quality Sciatica Treatment at Our Laramie, WY, Clinic
Sciatica, also known as lumbar radiculopathy, describes a set of symptoms, ranging from pain and numbness to weakness, tingling, and burning sensations, that radiate from the lower back and travel down one or both legs. As its name implies, sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is compressed, irritated, or inflamed. Symptoms of this condition can be mild and tolerable or cause excruciating pain. While symptoms oftentimes improve with time, this is not always the case. If you are experiencing pain in your lower back, turn to Premier Bone and Joint Centers. A spine doctor at our Laramie, Wyoming, clinic will be happy to assess your condition and develop a personalized sciatica treatment plan.
Causes of Sciatica
Sciatica is often a result of the natural aging process. Throughout an individual’s lifetime, the spine can endure a significant amount of stress, which can result in:
- A herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal narrowing (stenosis)
Any of these conditions can cause the sciatic nerve to become pinched.
Personalized Sciatica Treatment
At Premier Bone and Joint Centers, we always take conservative measures when treating sciatica. When you visit our Laramie clinic, one of our sciatica doctors will work with you to create a personalized care plan, which may include the following:
- A customized physical training plan
- Anti-inflammatory medication, as needed
- Injections, as needed
In most cases, conservative sciatica treatment options are effective. Only in severe cases should surgical intervention be considered.

Bunion Surgery Laramie
Practicing the Latest Techniques in Bunion Surgery for Patients in Laramie, WY
A bunion is an outward bulge at the base joint of the big toe. Bunions can develop as a result of wearing tight-fitting footwear and, oftentimes, aren’t painful and don’t require treatment. In more severe cases, however, bunions can cause the big toe to turn inward and cause pain. If you have a bunion that is painful or hindering your mobility, Premier Bone and Joint Centers can help. One of our foot and ankle doctors in Laramie, Wyoming, can assess your condition and determine if bunion surgery is an appropriate course of treatment.
When Is Bunion Surgery Recommended?
Whenever possible, conservative approaches should be taken when treating patients with bunions. These include wearing comfortable, roomy shoes and taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) when needed.
Conversely, our foot and ankle specialists may recommend bunion surgery, or lapiplasty bunion surgery to correct:
- Foot pain that limits ordinary activities such as walking a few blocks while wearing comfortable footwear
- Chronic inflammation surrounding the big toe
- Stiffness that makes it difficult to straighten or bend the big toe
- Excessive curvature of the big toe
Our orthopedic surgeons possess board certification and fellowship training, and many belong to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. What’s more, we utilize minimally invasive surgical techniques to mitigate soft tissue trauma and post-operative pain.
