Sciatica Pain, a Medical Emergency

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains you need to see a doctor when the sciatica pain follows a violent injury, when you have a severe pain in the low back or leg, and when you have trouble controlling bowels or bladder.

He recommends making sure there is no fracture on the spine with X-rays. "If there's a fracture, we can treat those, if it's not, then your are most likely to have some muscle completion and you can rest free."
