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.

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:
