Sciatica

Sciatic Pain

Sciatic Pain can present in any number of ways from pain or numbness, to pins and needles down the leg and even burning sensations and weakness in the legs.

Although Sciatica is a relatively common presentation to chiropractic clinics, the true meaning of the term is usually misunderstood. Some people often associate lower back pain as Sciatica or Sciatic pain, or they believed it is a diagnosed condition that they have, this is not the case. Sciatica is actually a set of symptoms, not a diagnosis.

These symptoms include:

  • Pain in the lower back
  • Referral pain into leg; back or front of thigh, down to ankle, foot and even toes
  • Burning sensation
  • Pins and needles
  • Tingling
  • Prickling or crawling sensations
  • Tenderness
  • Numbness

Pain from Sciatica often begins slowly, gradually intensifying over time. Additionally it can worsen after prolonged sitting, sneezing, couching, bending, or other sudden movements.
