Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation directly treats sciatica by working to diagnose and treat the conditions that cause sciatica. We strongly believe that patients suffering from painful and/or disabling disorders recover best in a multi-disciplinary rehabilitation office. On a very basic level, the system of care in our Red Bank, NJ pain management facility allows patients to find all necessary treatment options—medical, physical therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture—in one location.
This type of care also allows patients to exhaust every possible non-surgical option for pain relief. It is a well-documented fact that many surgeries for lower back conditions are unnecessary and ineffective. At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation, we don’t want patients who may not need surgical intervention to end up on the operating table simply because they weren’t aware of every possible rehabilitation/pain management option available.
For example, disc injuries—herniated or bulged spinal discs—are often the cause of sciatica (and therefore the cause of leg pain, numbness, and weakness). The following is a very basic list of some of the treatments provided in our office for disc problems:
• Physical Therapy, including therapeutic exercise, laser therapy, ice and heat, electrotherapy, and ultrasound;
• Spinal Decompression;
• Acupuncture for pain relief, better circulation, and faster healing;
• Medical Care, for accurate diagnoses and the creation of effective rehabilitation and pain management strategies; and
• Interventional Pain Management Techniques such as Epidural Steroid Injections, Radiofrequency Ablation, and Discograms.
It’s important to obtain a correct diagnosis of the causes of numbness and muscle weakness before proceeding with plans of care. Our office provides a number of diagnostic tools to help us accurately pinpoint the culprit behind such symptoms. Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation uses traditional X-Ray, Fluoroscopy, Ultrasound, and Electro-Diagnostic Nerve Testing.
