What is Sciatica?

Sciatica can be an irritating to heavily distracting pain that starts in the lower back and extends down into one or both legs. Patients who are suffering from sciatica are often in their 40s and 50s, but it can effect younger patients too. The symptoms usually worsen with long periods of sitting, standing or bed rest. Another common trigger for sciatic pain is also pregnancy.

The feeling of sciatic pain can be best described as a large river created by smaller streams, five pairs of nerves exit the spine in the lower back. These then form the two sciatic nerves that run down the backs of the legs. Often the soft disc between each spinal bone is involved as it may bulge, herniate or rupture putting pressure on the nearby nerves. This type of sciatica typically causes an acute, sharp pain down one leg often accompanied by numbness or pins & needles in the leg and foot. Sciatica can also be caused by facet joint (the interlocking joints of adjacent spinal bones) compression. The pain and symptoms from this form of sciatica usually stops at the knee.

The result is usually Swelling, inflammation and acute pain. Pain can also be experienced when coughing or sneezing or with certain movements is normal.

Sciatica is often the result of cumulative damage, despite often being first expressed by a patient following a specific trauma or incident. Years of bad posture, poor muscle tone, excess weight or countless other causes combine to create the problem. Then, something simple like bending over to tie your shoes, or sitting in a poorly supported chair can trigger an episode.

Fortunately sciatica usually responds quickly to osteopathic care. Contact us today to book your priority appointment appointment today with one of our specialists.
