Sciatica is a painful condition caused by irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve. If you suffer from sciatic nerve pain, you know how disruptive it can be to your life.
The sciatic nerve is the largest and longest spinal nerve in the human body and is located in the lower lumbar region of the spine. So when one is suffering from sciatic pain, it can be hard to ignore. The pain typically originates in the spine and radiates down the back of one or both legs. Our office uses a variety of singular and/or combined sciatic treatments and alternative therapies to alleviate pain caused by sciatica. Because our doctors take an individualized approach to treating this condition, we will not treat sciatica with a blanket or band-aid fix by relying on medication or surgery.
While sciatica can be caused by various conditions and injuries, the treatment for sciatica is varied. The individualized approach that we take at Advanced Medical of Nashville can provide a custom sciatic treatment program for your unique condition.
Our goal is to get to the root of our patients’ sciatic pain and solve the underlying issue for a more permanent solution.

“I came to Advanced Medical because I was having terrible pain in my feet which was not relieved with over the counter medication and I was not willing to take prescription medication for pain because it would not address the underlying nerve damage. After the therapy and supplements, I have no pain after only 10 visits! Amen!”
“My legs were weak. My back and shoulders hurt. I thought I’d have to live with my pain. No one ever tried to help me before, except with medications that I couldn’t take. I have now been a patient at Advanced Medical for 3.5 weeks and now I feel lots better. I walk better and I get in and out of the SUV better. I don’t use my cane as much at home. My back is also much better! I have regained my ability to be a little more independent.”
“Before initially starting care in the office I felt nothing in my feet. I couldn’t bend my toe. I couldn’t feel when I had to urinate. I was wearing Depends. I was told by my orthopedic doctor that I would have to have knee surgery because of osteoarthritis, but now I am not experiencing pain in my knees! (After 3 weeks) I am walking better than I have in over a year. I am actually wearing 2 inch heels today! I can move my feet/toes by just thinking about them moving. I can feel the urge to use the restroom. I used to have to hold on to the arms of the couch and the coffee table to lift myself up. The other day my husband noticed that I got up without assistance. I have gained my ability to walk!”
“My feet used to hurt so bad most days, I couldn’t hardly walk, especially up and down stairs. My hands hurt every day as well. I am now walking up and down stairs easier after 5 weeks (at AMN). My hands and feet are less painful and I am not taking Gabapentin anymore either!”
“I am blessed to have found this place. My feet were numb and now I have regained the feeling almost completely. My doctor was going to add more medication that had side-effects and I didn’t want that. The treatment is worth the effort and cost. I feel I now have a better quality of life and will be able to maintain my independence much longer! Thanks to this group which made it fun!”
