What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain that radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back down through the hips and buttocks to the legs. It can cause sharp, shooting pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness, making it difficult to perform even the simplest tasks.

Sciatica is often caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, or muscle imbalances that put pressure on the sciatic nerve. It can range from mild to severe and may worsen with prolonged sitting, standing, or certain movements.

I read a bunch of great reviews before I went in. I didn’t know what to expect and was anxious before I went in but after speaking to the dr, I feel great about doing my back fusion. The dr. answered every questions and instead of doing a 2 steps, he will do a 1 step which is less invasive

Sciatica FAQs

Answers to Common Questions. Click to Learn More

The most common symptoms of sciatica include sharp or shooting pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, numbness or tingling sensation in the affected areas, muscle weakness, and difficulty in moving the leg or foot.

Sciatica is commonly caused by a herniated disc, which occurs when the soft inner core of a spinal disc protrudes through the outer layer and presses on the nearby nerve roots. Other causes may include spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, spondylolisthesis, or rarely, tumors or infections.

The duration of sciatica varies depending on the underlying cause and individual factors. In many cases, symptoms improve within a few weeks or months with conservative treatments. However, some cases may persist for longer periods, requiring further evaluation and treatment.

While it may not be possible to prevent all cases of sciatica, certain measures can help reduce the risk. Maintaining good posture, practicing regular exercise to strengthen the core and back muscles, using proper lifting techniques, and avoiding prolonged sitting or standing can contribute to spine health and reduce the risk of sciatica.

In most cases, it is advisable to stay active and continue with gentle exercises and activities that do not exacerbate pain. Physical therapy exercises and stretches specifically designed for sciatica treatment can help relieve symptoms and improve flexibility and strength. However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional for guidance on appropriate exercises and activity levels based on your specific condition.

Sciatica can recur, especially if the underlying cause is not effectively addressed or if there are predisposing factors such as degenerative changes in the spine. However, with appropriate treatment and preventive measures, the risk of recurrent episodes can be minimized.
