Common Conditions We Treat


Serving patients in the Greater Phoenix, AZ community

Sciatica is a very common type of back pain, and is relatively easy to diagnose and treat. The pain is caused by the compression of the sciatic nerve, which runs from your lower back to your legs and feet. As the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed and/or compressed, it will trigger a burning, shooting sensation in your feet, legs, buttocks and lower back. Sciatica can last for a few weeks (acute) or be a chronic condition that many adults face, though it typically does not result in permanent damage to the sciatica nerve.

At Sonoran Pain & Spine, we work with our patients to identify the cause of their sciatica pain and find a solution that will allow them to get back to doing their best. Schedule an appointment with board certified physician Dr. Minesh Zaveri and relieve the pain from sciatica.

“The entire experience from scheduling an appointment to walking out the door was fantastic. You really get the sense that this is a world class practice. They made me feel welcomed and did not rush through the visit. He, and his PA, answered all my questions and ensured I understood the prognosis and all possible directions of care moving forward. I’m very happy we came across SPS.”
