Sciatica

con_9n14.jpg

Sciatica is a condition that results when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated. Bulging discs, spinal subluxations, and muscle spasms can all cause increased pressure on the sciatic nerve. When this happens it causes pain, numbness, and weakness in the lower back and leg. To properly treat sciatica the cause of the condition needs to be diagnosed and properly treated. Your chiropractor can help you do this.

Sciatica is a low back condition characterized by pain radiating down the leg following the sciatic nerve. This can happen in one leg or on both legs. In 80% of sciatica conditions, there is a piraformis spasm which is commonly known as a pain in the buttocks. Sciatic pain can be caused by nerve compression, disc herniation, degenerative joint disease, sports or occupational injuries, fractures, infection, spinal tumors, back strain, or spondylolisthesis. Depending on where the sciatic nerve is pinched will determine where you feel the pain which can radiate to the front of the knee or right down the back of the leg to the foot.



Symptoms:

  • Pain that radiates down the leg
  • Numbness and weakness in the affected area
