Do you have a sharp pain that typically radiates from one side of your back down one leg? What about numbness, tingling, or weakness in one leg? If you answer yes to this question, you may be suffering from sciatic pain.
Sciatic pain can vary widely from patient to patient so let us at Omnis Rehab Joint Performance Center help you understand this common condition. Sciatica can originate from one side in the lower back, or the buttock area. It often travels down the affected leg, causing numbness, tingling, pain, weakness, or a pins and needles sensation.
Some of the primary symptoms of sciatica include:
Sciatica (sometimes known as radiculopathy) is inflammation or irritation of the sciatic nerve. This can be caused from dysfunction of the muscles and/ or joints surrounding this nerve. These dysfunctions can be caused by an injury or joint misalignments/ joint restrictions putting pressure on the sciatic nerve. Muscle weakness or muscle tightness can also contribute to nerve pressure causing sciatic pain. Pregnancy is another leading cause of sciatic pain. The sciatic nerve passes underneath the uterus and as your body changes throughout pregnancy, pressure on the sciatic nerve can increase.
Sciatic pain can be debilitating. At Omnis Rehab Joint and Performance Center, our goal is to treat your pain through chiropractic and rehab treatments that are non invasive and safe.
