Things you should know about sciatica and its treatment

Sciatica can be a very painful condition for you to deal with and it can keep you from enjoying all the fun things that you love to do. Learning more about this condition is vital if you want to find the best treatment for sciatica.

Sciatica occurs when your sciatic nerve is irritated or pinched in some way. This nerve can be irritated by one of several back conditions. For instance, a condition called lumbar spinal stenosis can cause sciatica. This condition causes a narrowing of the spinal canal that runs through the middle of your spine. The narrowing of the spinal canal, in turn, irritates your sciatic nerve and causes sciatica. Some of the other back issues that cause sciatica include lumbar herniated discs and disc stress fractures that cause your vertebrae to slip out of position, which is a condition called spondylolisthesis.

Any of these back conditions can cause you to develop sciatica, and this condition can have many different symptoms. Some of the symptoms that you may experience from sciatica include: 

  • Pain in your lower back
  • Burning and tingling pains in your legs
  • Foot or leg numbness
  • Problems sitting down or standing up

All these symptoms can be a burden on your daily life. Thankfully, Advent Physical Therapy has a variety of ways to help you, including a personalized physical therapy plan to treat your sciatica. We even offer a free 15-minute screening so that you can learn more about this condition and how we’ll treat it.
