What Is Sciatica?

Sciatica generally means agony or disturbed sensation in the lower back that radiates into the leg, knee and foot, although each person's symptoms may differ slightly. There are different factors behind sciatica:

*Irritation of the Sciatic Nerve (one of the thickest nerves in the body) by compression of surrounding muscles

*Compression of the nerves that supply the leg and low back as they exit the spine by disk bulges, bony growths or hardened ligaments

*Damage of tissues like muscle, ligament, bones or tendons in the lumbar region which can then refer discomfort down into the leg

*Additional causes include issues with abdominal and pelvic organs and blood vessels but contrasted to the other causes these are extremely rare

Because sciatica is almost always accompanied by back pain there are similar risk factors for both Lumbar Region Discomfort and Sciatica:

An inactive approach to life is a gigantic predisposing factor for several reasons, when a person is sitting for long periods they are going to be supporting the weight of their trunk, shoulder and head mostly on the back and pelvis. This leads to a scenario where a comparatively little amount of tendons, muscles and ligaments are supporting a large part of your body weight. As the body needs loads to be spread around so loads are shared, lengthened sitting can cause over load of areas of tendon, muscles and ligaments which means they get damaged and are not as good at supporting you after some time.

Smoking is a predisposing factor due to the damaging effect on veins. This increases swelling in the body and in time can lower the amount of blood delivered to a materially fatigued area by reducing the flow through damaged vessels.

People working in jobs that call for frequent lifting who haven't been taught (or don't use) correct technique are also at larger risk.

Treatments include Chiropractic, Osteopathy, Physiotherapy, Acupuncture & Massage.

Analgesics can be effective at relieving pain in a number of cases.
