Suffering from pain due to Sciatica? We can Help!
Sciatica refers to the pain that radiates throughout the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is the widest and longest single nerve in the human body which runs from your lower back, through your hips and butt, and down each leg. Sciatica occurs when there is increased pressure on your sciatic nerve, causing it to become pinched. Many individuals make the mistake of referring to any leg, hip, or lower back pain as sciatica. However, sciatic pain is typically very targeted, and is a result of an underlying disorder.
What Causes Sciatica?
Sciatica occurs when the roots that make up the sciatic nerve become irritated. With this being said, it is important to note that the term “sciatica” is not a name for a condition in itself, but rather defines a set of symptoms. Sciatica is actually a symptom of an underlying medical condition.
Common factors leading to Sciatica:
- Prolonged Sitting
- Occupational Strains
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Piriformis Syndrome
- Swelling from Arthritis or Sprains
