Sciatica pain treatment

Not all back pain is Sciatica

Did you know, not all back pain is Sciatica?

Sciatica pain treatment: Sciatica is a condition characterized by pain which shoots down the leg from the lower back. This pain may go down the back, outside, or front of the leg – depending on which nerve is affected. Typically, symptoms are only on one side of the body. It is rare to feel symptoms bilaterally. Certain causes can result in pain on both sides. Lower back pain is sometimes but not always present. Weakness or numbness may occur in various parts of the affected leg and foot.

Sciatica Pain

Suffering from Sciatica Pain? Did you know the Sciatic nerve is the largest nerve in the human body?

Pain which can originate in your lower back and travels into your leg with or without pins and needles, numbness and burning sensations can be associated with Sciatic nerve pain.

Sciatica Nerve Pain

Sciatica is often characterized by one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Constant pain in only one side of the buttock or leg (rarely in both legs)
  • Pain that is worse when sitting
  • Leg pain that is often described as burning, tingling, or searing (versus a dull ache)
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg, foot, and/or toes
  • A sharp pain that may make it difficult to stand up or walk
  • Pain that radiates down the leg and possibly into the foot and toes (it rarely occurs only in the foot)

Sciatic pain can vary from infrequent and irritating to constant and incapacitating. Symptoms are usually based on the location of the pinched nerve.
