sciatica attleboro seekonkAs explained by Dr. Jason Miller, your chiropractor in Seekonk and Attleboro, sciatica is a relatively common form of low back and leg pain but the true meaning of the term is often misunderstood. Sciatica is the term used to describe a set of symptoms rather than a diagnosis for what is irritating the root of the nerve, causing the pain. This type of pain occurs when one or more of the spinal nerves become compressed. Some of the common symptoms of sciatica include:
  • Pain in the rear or leg that is worse when in a seated position
  • A shooting pain that causes difficulty upon standing up
  • A constant pain on one side of the rear
  • Weakness, numbness, or difficulty moving the leg or foot
  • Burning or tingling and prickling down the leg
  • Pain in the lower buttocks, back of the leg or even the bottom of the foot
If you suffer from sciatica, you may typically experience the symptoms on one side of the body. The pain often extends from the lower back through the back of the thigh and down through the leg.  Depending on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain can also extend to the foot or toes.  The level of pain caused by sciatica varies from person to person. For some, it may be severe and debilitating and for others, the pain may be infrequent and irritating, but has the potential to get worse.

The Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica is caused by the general compression or irritation of one of five spinal nerve roots that give rise to each sciatic nerve or by compression or irritation of the left or right or both sciatic nerves. Being overweight, not exercising regularly, wearing high heels or sleeping on a mattress that is too soft may also cause back pain to worsen. Chiropractic care is often very helpful in reducing spinal nerve irritation.
