We Can Provide Relief from the Crippling Symptoms of Sciatica Pain
Are you located in or around Jacksonville or Orange Park, FL and suffering from sciatica? Damage to the lower back or hip area can often result in the development of sciatica. At its most basic, sciatica is pain or discomfort caused by irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve. This is the longest nerve in the body, running from the lower back, across the buttocks and down the leg. If damage to the sciatic nerve occurs, causing sciatica, patients may experience the following symptoms:
- A tingling sensation down the buttocks and the backs of the legs
- Pain of varying severity
- Muscle weakness
Sciatica commonly affects one side of the body only, but may affect both legs in some circumstances. There are a number of different reasons why sciatica can develop: in some instances it can be due to sudden trauma (for example, an RTA); in others, disc degeneration, infection or spinal stenosis may be to blame.
