Low back pain and sciatica can be a pain in the butt... literally. Sciatica is when people have a pain right in the middle of the hip usually caused by the L4 and L5 nerves. It originates up in the back most of the time and can be caused by various injuries such as bulging disc, herniated disc and a bone spur to name a few.

The doctors at AZ Pain Centers go straight to the source of what's causing the pain and are known for their non-steroidal approach. The non-steroidal injections are a mixture of local anesthetics that give immediate relief and non-steroidal mixture that attacks the inflammatory response caused by that chronic irritation of the nerve root. Non-steroidal is known to have no side-effects whereas the traditional treatment of steroids can have side effects such as increased blood sugar levels and sometimes even change someones personality.

If you're in pain and in need of treatment contact AZ Pain Centers for a consultation. Some of the areas they treat are fibromyalgia, migraines, tension and cluster headaches, low back pain, neck pain, hand and wrist pain, joint and muscle pain, arm and shoulder pain, tennis elbow, knee pain, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, thoracalgia, stomach and abdominal pain.
