Do you have radiating leg pain?
Learn about a no-cost, new investigational procedure to potentially treat sciatica symptoms.
Do you struggle with radiating leg pain?
If you have pain that radiates from your lower back down into one leg, you may have sciatica – a painful condition that affects millions of Americans each year. An estimated 12-40% of patients with low back pain suffer from sciatica. The most common cause of sciatica is a bulging disc in the lower spine, and the pain can be quite severe. Conservative treatments include analgesic therapies (NSAIDs), acetaminophen, topical treatments, physical therapy, home exercise program, heat compresses/massage, chiropractic treatment, reduction of activity, etc. For some patients, conservative treatments are not sufficient to reduce and eliminate sciatica pain.
If you have tried conservative treatments and still experience sciatica pain, you may qualify for a new research study, now being offered at select centers throughout the U.S. This is an investigational study treatment that involves a single epidural injection, which does not contain steroids or opioids. If you qualify and choose to participate, you will receive all study-related care at no cost.

- 18 years of age or older
- Have sciatica pain below the knee in 1 leg
- Your CURRENT episode of pain has lasted less than 9 months
- Have tried conservative treatments for leg pain and had no significant pain improvement

About the study
Sciatica pain can be moderate to severe and cause disruption to daily life, by potentially limiting mobility, disrupting sleep, causing anxiety and depression, and interfering with one’s ability to work. The pain typically varies from person to person. The location of the pain can be anywhere along the path of the sciatic nerve – ranging from the lower back, buttock, and down the leg, and it can range from a cramp, to a sharp or shooting pain, to a “pins and needles” feeling. Right now, doctors at select centers in the U.S. are conducting a new research study for sciatica sufferers. The study is for an investigational study treatment designed to provide long-term relief of sciatica pain. It involves a single epidural injection that does not contain steroids or opioids. If you’ve been struggling with sciatica pain for at least 8 weeks, and conservative treatments have failed to alleviate your discomfort, this study may be right for you.
The study will take approximately one year to complete, with treatment in the first 4 weeks, followed by 12 months of scheduled reviews and observation. The study will include trial-related medical examinations, surveys, lab work, and assessments made by medical investigators.
There will be no cost associated with participation in the trial. You may receive compensation for transportation and time required to participate in the trial.
