Are You Suffering From Sciatica?

Watch this video to learn about how it is formed.

What causes sciatica to form?

Your nervous system is essentially a large electrical grid. Your spinal cord sends an electrical nerve impulse that runs between your brain and lower back.

Individual nerves arise from your spine and transmit impulses to your lower body, which provide stimulation and movement.

This is what allows you to move as well as feel sensations like touch, heat, cold and pain. Anything that interferes with this transmission can create pain and problems. 

What Symptoms Are Associated With Sciatica?

If you are suffering from sciatica then you have been diagnosed with a "Lumbar Radiculopathy".

This indicates that a single nerve or several nerves emerging from your lower back have become irritated or probably pinched. This often results in the patient suffering from pain, numbness or tingling in the specific area of your leg that is supplied by the irritated nerve.

The term "Sciatica" is often used to describe this condition because most (but not all) "lumbar radiculopathies" cases impact or involve the sciatic nerve which supplies the back & outside of your thigh and calf. The symptoms of lumbar radiculopathy vary, but most people experience a dull ache that progresses to a persistent intense sharp shooting pain. In some cases, you may find that your symptoms are aggravated by certain positions or movements.
