CONDITIONS & TREATMENTS
Leaders in nonsurgical solutions that effectively treat sciatica. Discover the difference at MAPS Centers For Pain Control today
Whether it’s shooting pain through the hip, legs, or a radiating burning sensation that leaves weakness and numbness in the lower extremities – sciatic pain is a very real and very common condition that impacts people’s ability to work, move around, and take care of themselves and their families.
As concerning and painful as these symptoms may be, they rarely require surgery. The double-board certified physicians at MAPS Centers For Pain Control recognized a true need for patients suffering from this condition to have effective solutions in finding relief from their pain.

What Causes Sciatica?
Whether the result of an accident, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, or another reason, sciatica most commonly occurs when a herniated disk, bone spur on the spine, or narrowing of the spine compresses part of the sciatic nerve. When compressed, this causes inflammation and pain; sometimes even often some numbness in the leg. Sciatica normally occurs on one side of the body.
Our Sciatica Treatments at MAPS
MAPS is Chicago’s leader in conservative treatment for chronic and acute pain, including sciatic pain. Every patient undergoes a comprehensive medical exam so our physicians may note their symptoms, history, and determine an appropriate treatment plan.
Many treatments may include or be a combination of responsible medication management, physical therapy, acupuncture, an injection-based protocol, or other innovative treatments:
Many patients respond positively to our injection-based treatments which offer the benefit of rapid pain relief as well as the benefits of being non-surgical. This may include:.
Lumbar and cervical injections
Epidural Steroid Injections
Sacroiliac Joint Injection
Trigger Point Injections
Lumbar Sympathetic Block
Interscalene/ Intercostal Blocks
Responsible Medication Management
While the opioid crisis has made a negative impact on reducing the pain of Americans, there is still a place for responsible medication management that is closely monitored and observed if it provides a benefit to our patients. Our physicians may recommend:
Ethical Pain Medicine Management
Over-The-Counter Medications and Supplements
Minimally Invasive Procedures
We are leaders in interventional pain procedures that use the latest in medical technology to intercept pain signals from reaching the brain. Rather than masking symptoms with medication, many patients find long-term relief from procedures such as:
Spinal Cord Stimulator Implantation
Many of our patients find positive results when they couple their treatment with a physical therapy program. Our physicians work with primary care physicians as well as experienced, qualified physical therapists to ensure our patients benefit from a comprehensive treatment plan.
Bracing & Supports
While it’s a challenge to move when a patient is in pain, bracing and rehabilitative support can help provide better outcomes in many sciatica pain treatment scenarios. Bracing gives stability to the bones and ligaments in the spine, while rehabilitation strengthens the muscles and helps redevelop balance as part of a sciatica pain treatment program.
