Sciatica Treatment in Dallas, TX
The term sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain (and possibly tingling, numbness or weakness) that starts in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. Sciatica is not a medical diagnosis—it is a symptom of an underlying spine problem, such as degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, or a herniated disc.

What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
- Constant pain in one side of the buttock or leg
- Leg pain that is often described as burning, tingling, or searing (vs. a dull pain or ache)
- Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
- A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or walk
How Is Sciatica Diagnosed?
Minor symptoms of sciatica will resolve over time. If symptoms are intense and continue for several weeks, or result from a sudden injury, you likely need treatment. Dr. Neil Shah, Dr. Vishal Patel, and Dr. Christopher Happ are highly experienced in diagnosing the causes of sciatica and other spinal disorders as well as providing both surgical and non-surgical care.
