Sciatica

 
 

What are the SYMPTOMS?

Pain that radiates from your lower (lumbar) spine to your buttock and down the back of your leg is the hallmark of sciatica. You might feel the discomfort almost anywhere along the nerve pathway, but it's especially likely to follow a path from your low back to your buttock and the back of your thigh and calf.

 

Who is at risk?

Degenerative changes to the lumbar spine or an injury to the intervertebral disc are the most common precursors to sciatic pain.

 

What are the treatments?

Once we determine the root cause of the pain, there are many nonsurgical treatment programs available. Some of these include several regenerative medicine options, as well as chiropractic care and functional rehab.
