Sciatic Nerve Diagram

Sciatica, determined by a pain, numbness, or tingling in the low back or leg, is a very common form of back pain that many of our patients have experienced.

Symptoms

Sciatica has a number of symptoms, but the most common is pain or tingling that begins in the low back and extends down through one leg. Most patients notice the pain worsening when they are sitting and can find it difficult to move or control the foot of the leg they are experiencing pain in. Some patients even find it difficult to stand due to the pain they experience in their leg.

Burning, tingling, weakness and numbness in the low back and leg are all possible symptoms of sciatica, and most patients experience near constant pain, though usually only in one side of their lower body. Exposure to cold weather can often enhance the pain patients feel. If the sciatic nerve is affected in a certain way, pain can even extend through the feet and toes, but this is less common.

I analyzed the nice surgery solutions located on your site and all of a sudden I had a horrible suspicion I had not expressed respect to my back with those strategies. My women came to me with leg pain and it could be sciatica.

I know this sounds unbelievable, but it’s true. I have experienced it myself. I was one of the worst sufferers of sciatica. And in the third day of your kind of treatment, it was completely gone!! Disappeared into oblivion!!! Now, I am wondering if I ever had sciatica in the first place.
