Spotlight on the Symptoms of Sciatica
Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve that runs down the spinal column and into the leg is compressed. It can cause intense pain in the lower back, buttocks, and back of the legs that can be bad enough to interfere with mobility. Many people who visit a chiropractor or physical therapist are looking for relief from painful sciatica symptoms.
Sciatica causes tingling and numbness, as well as pain that radiates from the back down the leg. It usually gets worse after sitting or lying down, and it causes a sharp wave of pain upon standing. Many people describe the pain as a burning sensation that only affects one leg. Sciatica pain is constant and is not relieved by rest. For many people, it makes walking difficult.
