Sciatica Treatment near Seattle, WA

Serving Patients in Seattle, Kirkland, Bellevue, and the Surrounding Areas

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. Dr. Edward Jung is an expert in addressing sciatica and its associated symptoms.

Schedule a consultation at our spine care clinic in Kirkland, WA, and learn more about treatments for sciatic nerve pain.

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 to walk

Sciatica Test

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. Edward Jung is highly experienced in diagnosing the causes of sciatica and other spinal disorders as well as providing both surgical and non-surgical care.

Sciatica Treatment

Dr. Jung takes a conservative approach by recommending non-surgical treatments whenever possible. We recommend surgery as a last resort when symptoms do not improve with conservative measures. Treatment options for sciatica may include one or a combination of the following:

  • Modified Physical Activity
  • Spinal Injections
  • Medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Minimally Invasive Lumbar Microdiscectomy
  • Minimally Invasive Lumbar Microdecompression
