What Causes Sciatica Pain?
Sciatica is not exactly a disorder or disease by itself. Sciatica is the collection of several symptoms that appear near or around the area that extends from the lower back down to the feet. In this area exists the sciatic nerve and when this nerve is bothered symptoms might include:
- Having weakness in the lower body
- Experiencing numbness and tingling in the feet or legs
- Experiencing burning sensations
- Pain ranging in intensity from mild to severe
- Having a difficult time walking
Our sciatic nerve extends downward from your lower back and buttocks through your feet. You can experience and of the aforementioned symptoms in one or more of these areas. The pain usually seems to be worse on one side of the body or the other.
When you are experiencing sciatica pain the sciatic nerve is being compressed or irritated. What is causing the irritation? There are several things that could cause this irritation including bone spurs, bulging or herniated discs, degeneration, and decay. Each of these things compress the space surrounding the sciatic nerve and put a large amount of pressure on the nerve. This is where your pain is coming from. If you have neglected misalignments which exist in your spine and have practiced poor posture in your life, there can be weak muscles in your back that may contribute to the problem of sciatica. The body is amazing because it adapts to issues in the spine for potentially years, however, after the years of compensating the body wears out and can’t compensate any longer.
Treatments that have been used in the past don’t address the source of the pain, merely relieve the symptoms temporarily. Some treatments can actually end up making your symptoms worse and can cause your pain to increase or come with potentially harmful side effects. Treatments may include the use of potentially harmful drugs surgery to remove bones that are causing the compression, or increasing exercise of the affected area. The use of medications to treat your pain will mask the pain and will provide relief that is temporary. Physical therapy and exercises might work to provide relief for some people, but it can increase the irritation in your muscles. Lastly, surgery to remove bone changes your body in a way that is irreversible and can actually result in having bones fused or even removed. Some people find that surgery worsens their pain or creates additional problems later in life.
