"I am so grateful for Tricity Pain Management they actually listen and care. I had a bad experience with another Pain Management years ago with a very extensive shoulder surgery and so you could say it was so good to have a a PA like James Houston to take care of me. Daniel his assistant is super kind as well. I wished my insurance company Atena cared like TriCity. This has been a very tough and trying season of my life. If you have a issue share it and they will listen. Thank you for caring during it."- A.L. / Google / Aug 18, 2022

Typically, patients can ease sciatica symptoms with gentle stretching exercises to reduce pressure on the sciatic nerve. These stretching techniques may be performed in-home, but it could be extremely helpful to meet with a physical therapist. A physical therapist can coach you on the best ways to perform these stretches, which may provide significant relief. If more conservative methods do not work, patients can try more advanced treatments, like steroid shots or medicine that helps with inflammation.
