The sciatic nerve is the largest nerve bundle in the human body. It’s no wonder, then, that when you experience sciatic nerve impingement, it can lead to significant and even debilitating pain. Thankfully, your Orlando chiropractor provides safe, natural, and effective sciatica treatment to reduce your pain fast.
How to Tell If Your Pain Is Caused by the Sciatic Nerve
Sciatica is not a condition or disorder. It’s the symptom of one – namely, nerve compression. The other tissues in your body are compressing your sciatic nerve. The causes for this could be:
- Herniated disc
- Spinal misalignment
- Bone spur
- A tumor
- Damage caused by diabetes (rare)
How can you tell that your pain is caused by the sciatic nerve? Here are some common symptoms of sciatic nerve compression:
- Low back pain
- Leg pain that runs the entire length of the leg (often felt in the back of the leg)
- Leg pain that’s worse while sitting
- Hip pain
- Burning and tingling in the legs
- Shooting pain upon standing
- Weakness or numbness of the legs
