What Is Sciatica?

As the longest nerve in the human body, the sciatic nerve runs from the lower back down the back of each leg. Should something happen to damage it, you might experience debilitating pain up and down your leg, leaving you helpless when faced with menial tasks. The team at Atlantic Coast Physical Medicine in Summerville, South Carolina, ensure that your symptoms are addressed immediately so you can return to leading a pain-free life. Call the office or book an appointment online today to learn more about sciatica treatment options.

Sciatica or Sciatic Pain is a common condition that many middle age and elderly citizens suffer from. Those suffering from this condition experience sharp burning pains through or down their leg.

Although many people may believe this pain originates from their hips, it actually occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs through the tailbone and down the back of the legs is compressed by a herniated disc or bone spur.

The pain can be worse if you also suffer from muscle spasms or misaligned disks, which increase pressure in the back. We can treat this condition directly without surgery or prescription medications.

The sciatic nerves are the two longest single nerves in the human body. They begin in the lower part of your spine, run down through your hips and rear-end, and then exit into the backs of your thighs. Inflammation of this nerve, called sciatica, is very painful.

Those suffering from this condition describe sharp burning pains through or down their leg, sometimes all the way into the feet and toes. “Sciatica” is not actually a medical diagnosis, but a description of a collection of symptoms that come along with the compression of the sciatic nerve.

If you’re experiencing sciatica type symptoms, it’s very important that you see a physical medicine doctor to find out what part of the sciatic nerve is being compressed – and most importantly – by what. Conventional physicians generally prefer prescribing pain medications and will sometimes recommend stretching and exercising. It isn’t until the pain has become chronic that many doctors start to take notice.
