What is Sciatica?

Sciatica, or sciatic neuralgia, is a condition that manifests as pain originating in the lower back, extending down the back of one leg, and sometimes reaching the foot. It can lead to discomfort during prolonged periods of sitting or standing and result in weakness, tingling, or numbness in the affected leg and foot. Sciatica can vary in intensity and duration, with some individuals experiencing mild, intermittent pain, while others endure severe, constant discomfort.

The underlying cause of sciatica is the compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, the longest nerve in the body. This nerve extends from the lumbar spine through the buttocks and down the legs. Factors such as disc injuries, spinal misalignments, poor posture, pregnancy, or trauma can lead to this compression, causing the characteristic symptoms of sciatica.

Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can develop from various factors:

  • Disc Injuries and Bulges: The most common cause, is when the disc presses against the nerve root.
  • Spinal Misalignments (Subluxations): Caused by postural issues, pregnancy, or physical trauma.
  • Repetitive Use Injuries: Resulting from poor posture or repetitive movements.
  • Accidents: Sudden impacts can cause shifts in the spine, leading to sciatica.

Symptoms of Sciatica

  • Pain that radiates from the lower back to the back of the leg and foot.
  • Difficulty sitting or standing for extended periods.
  • Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the leg and foot.
  • Sudden, severe pain upon movement.
