What Is Sciatica?
Sciatica is an ailment and the name refers to leg pain and other unpleasant sensations. You should know that sciatica is actually a symptom of what the chiropractor would refer to as an underlying medical issue, such as a previous injury or a problem with your spine.
What Are the Symptoms of Sciatica?
Patients typically report symptoms as being feelings of leg pain, weakness, tingling, and numbness. The pain begins at your lower back. It moves through the nerves into your buttock and then progresses along the sciatic nerve, located in the back of each of your legs.
The pain (usually in one leg and buttock or the other) may feel worse when you are sitting. Sometimes it is so painful that you will have trouble standing or walking.
What Causes Sciatica?
Sciatica has a number of causes. People do not tend to get sciatica until after age 40. It can be caused by an injury. In some cases, people will get sciatica because of an underlying cause of spinal stenosis or a degenerative disc disease. Fortunately, treatment is available from your preferred Mathews NC chiropractors at Matthews Family Chiropractic.
