Sciatica is characterized by a collection of painful symptoms originating in the lower back and radiating along the path of your sciatic nerve, leading to numbness, weakness, or tingling discomfort down your leg.
The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in your body, composed of individual nerve roots that start in your lower back and branch out along your legs. Conditions like a herniated disc or spinal stenosis can often lead to sciatica.
You experience sciatica symptoms when the sciatic nerve becomes irritated near its origin point.
Common signs of sciatica may include one or more of the following:
- Persistent pain on one side of your buttock or leg
- Amplified pain when sitting
- A burning, tingling, or searing sensation in the leg
- Difficulty in moving the leg, foot, or toes
- Challenges in standing or walking
- Pain that radiates down your leg and potentially into your foot and toes
The frequency and severity of sciatica symptoms can range from being intermittent and slightly annoying to being constant and incapacitating.
Sciatica symptoms occur when your sciatic nerve is compressed. The common causes of this compression could be:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal stenosis
- Bone spurs
- Tumor compression
- Complications from diseases like diabetes
Such conditions can cause irritation of your sciatic nerve, leading to painful symptoms.
Our physicians start with a comprehensive physical examination. They need to know your symptoms in-depth and fully comprehend your condition to make an accurate diagnosis and formulate an effective treatment plan.
Following the diagnosis, our physicians offer a range of cutting-edge treatment options to alleviate your pain.
Your prescribed treatment may encompass a combination of:
- Lifestyle adjustments
- Physical therapy
- Prescribed pain medication
- Tumor compression
- Spinal cord stimulation therapy
