Sciatic pain typically begins in the lower back or buttocks and extends down the leg, sometimes to the foot.

Comprehensive Diagnosis & Treatment of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is a large neurological structure located just outside of the spine. It consists of several spinal nerves that exit the spine, merge in the buttocks, and extend down the leg. Pressure on these spinal nerves can result in sciatic pain.

Sciatica is usually caused by another spinal condition that may require treatment. Determining the cause of your sciatica is an important first step in ensuring long-term recovery.

Conditions That May Cause Sciatica:

Treatment Options

Sciatica is not a serious condition. Ninety-five percent of patients will recover naturally in 12 weeks. It is still important to have a physician properly diagnose sciatica to determine if an underlying condition is causing your pain. Treating the underlying condition will usually resolve sciatica.


My back feels better than it has in a long time. I am even back to softball and fishing with very little pain. I'm thankful to Dr. Biscup for helping to improve my quality of life.
