Sciatica



Endurance athletes in and around Los Angeles are prone to Sciatica, a common sports injury occurring with the Sciatic nerve is compressed. The ensuing pain reported by Dr. Nadel's athlete patients may begin with numbness or tingling, before presenting as radiating pain beginning in the low back, and extending down through the buttocks and the leg. Distance runners, basketball players, soccer players and football players are frequently treated by Dr. Nadel for Sciatica. Treatment will require that Dr. Nadel identify the cause of the nerve compression (herniated or bulging discs in the spine are common causes). Once the source of the nerve irritation is identified, treatment may range from resting, icing, and anti-inflammatory medications, to physical therapy or surgery.
