Sciatica


The sciatic nerve runs from the buttock down the back of the leg; sciatica refers to any pain experienced down the sciatic nerve.

Causes

  • Bulging or herniated disk pushing on the sciatic nerve
  • Tight piriformis muscle
  • In rare cases, a growth (e.g. tumour or cyst) putting pressure on the nerve

Symptoms

  • Back pain concentrated on one side
  • Pain in the buttock and the back of the leg
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Burning pain in lower leg and foot
  • Full assessment to determine the severity of the problem and how it should be treated
  • Possible referral for scanning and subsequently surgery if necessary
  • Alternatively, physical therapy including stretching (flexion distraction), massage, gentle adjustment to the spine
  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Dietary changes
  • Ice and heat
  • Gentle exercises

Sciatica varies in severity and can take from a few weeks to several months to settle down.
