Got sciatica? Join our live chat on Wednesday

Join us noon July 27 at baltimoresun.com/healthchat for a live chat on non-surgical treatments for sciatica with Dr. Steven Cohen of Johns Hopkins. Injury to the sciatic nerve will cause leg pain, weakness, numbness, or tingling, according to the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Treatments vary, depending on the underlying cause, but can include over-the-counter pain killers and physical therapy.

Cohen is an associate professor and researcher with Hopkins School of Medicine and professor of anesthesiology at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences and director of Pain Research at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
