Struggling With Sciatica?

The sciatic nerve is a large nerve in humans. It extends from the lower back to the buttocks and branches out down the back of the legs all the way to the feet. The most common cause of sciatica is a herniated disc. Back pain, leg pain and hip pain can arise when the inner gel of the herniated disc enters the spinal canal and irritates the sciatic nerve. Other causes of sciatica include pregnancy, spinal stenosis, bone spurs and pinched nerves caused by injury.

Typically, the symptoms of sciatica begin in the back or buttocks and radiate down the leg. In addition to leg pain, pain may move to the feet. Numbness, tingling or weakness in the leg may also occur. Sitting and standing for long periods of time make symptoms worse. Lying down or walking may help relieve painful symptoms.

The condition of sciatica in Parker CO can be diagnosed with a full patient medical history and physical exam. At times, MRIs and X-rays may be helpful in identifying the root cause of sciatica, such as in the case of a herniated disc.
