What is Sciatic Pain?

Sciatica is a condition that involves pain starting at the buttocks or lower back. This pain goes to one or both of your legs, which may persist and worsen. Moreover, the pain can be moderate or minimal, while others may experience a more frequent and constant uncomfortable sensation.

The type of pain is similar to a kind of discomfort that is somewhat achy, dull or as though you are being pierced by sharp needles. There are also other symptoms linked with sciatica such as tingling or numbness, as well as a burning sensation on the affected area. However, it is worth noting that sciatica is not a medical condition in itself since it is more of a physical symptom of a health disorder.

Causes and Diagnosis of Sciatic Pain

The common causes of sciatic pain include subluxations on the lumbar spine, childbirth, pregnancy, tumors and slipped discs. There are also disorders linked with this symptoms such as constipation and diabetes. With compression of the sciatic nerve, paralysis of one limb may occur, which further progresses into pain and inflammation.
