Understanding Disc Issues and Sciatica Pain

Disc issues and sciatica pain can significantly impact daily life, causing discomfort and limitation in movement. By recognizing symptoms and understanding the underlying issues, you can take proactive steps towards managing and alleviating the discomfort associated with disc issues and sciatica pain in Columbus at Pain Zero.

  • Persistent lower back pain
  • Radiating pain down the leg
  • Numbness or tingling sensation in the leg or foot
  • Weakness in the leg or foot

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the gold standard for evaluating disc issues and determining if pain originates from the back. Sometimes, the nerve gets pinched along the body, and that’s where electromyography (EMG) comes into the discussion. Either way, if we can isolate the nerve responsible for the pain, we can treat it.

I've been coming here for 4 months now after trying to manage my back pain issues with every other treatment and medicine that my previous specialists offered from May 2022 until Nov 2023. In these 4 months I've had more improvement in mobility and pain relief than i did in all of 2022 and 2023. I've also seen a significant weight loss from being able to move better, cook my own food, and work again. Pain Zero also offer medicine when needed between procedures and more importantly they listen to the issues you're having and provide safe and effective pain relief. I wish I would have came here 2 years ago when my issues first started, but I'm thankful to have found a great doctor and pain management center now. Why I would suggest Pain Zero over a place that rhymes with Northo Oro for spine and neck issues through my personal experience. (Dr. C and his orthopedic team at "Northo Oro" are awesome!) I feel Dr Taif at Pain Zero listened to my issues and concerns with the pain and offered options he felt was best for me. I was very hesitant after many short lived & underwhelming procedures at the other places. Pain Zero offers all the same out patient surgical procedures as the bigger ortho centers. The difference in that is the big centers have around 30 people on staff and PZ has about 5. So the costs of the procedures are far less and you don't have an audience in the room either like the other place.

Non-Surgical Sciatica Pain and Disc Issues Treatment in Columbus

At our pain management clinic in Columbus, we often recommend treatments for sciatica pain relief and disc problems that do not require surgery and opt for minimal invasiveness for maximum relief. Most injections for disc and sciatica pain relief at our Columbus clinic require using a needle no bigger than a flu shot.

Quality of life goals are the deciding factor: if you lead an active lifestyle and want to continue pushing yourself, your choices may differ from someone dealing with the pain for decades. Ultimately we offer all therapies to all patients and leave it for you to decide.

There are noninvasive and interventional procedures for disc-related issues and sciatica management, including but not limited to:

  • Physical Therapy
  • Diet & Weight Loss
  • Laser and Ultrasound Therapy
  • Medication Management
  • Epidural Steroid Injections (Interlaminar, Transforaminal)
  • Selective Nerve Root Blocks
  • Peripheral Nerve Blocks
  • Intradiscal Injections
  • Endoscopic Discectomy
  • Spinal Cord Stimulation
  • Dorsal Root Ganglion Stimulation
  • Pain Pump (Intrathecal Pump Therapy)

What to Expect When Seeking Relief at Pain Zero

The first visit at Pain Zero involves reviewing a patient’s history and getting to know them. There’s a lot to unpack and many decisions to digest. We want to make sure you are well aware of your options, and strive to help whether you pursue future care with us or not. A physical examination will take place, followed by an imaging review, which allows us to see what is happening in your body.

Our practice uses the most modern technology offered in X-Ray imaging and ultrasound-guided interventions which a licensed practitioner will perform. To be even more specific, we can target the nerves that are being pinched under X-Ray and ultrasound guidance. We also offer endoscopic interventions where we use an ultra-minimally invasive approach through an incision smaller than a fingernail to remove disc bulges from pushing on the nerve using a camera. The success rate is estimated at 80-90%, with less pain and better mobility after surgery. The recovery time is virtually none compared to major surgery; however, sometimes surgery is the only answer, and your Columbus disc and sciatica care specialist will discuss that with you.

After your treatment, our clinic collaborates closely with other healthcare professionals, such as orthopedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, rehab physicians, neurologists, and physical therapists, to manage follow-ups. We get reports, whether it’s from physical therapy or surgical evaluations so we can better counsel and support you in your decision making.
