Sciatica describes the symptoms of leg pain, numbness, or weakness that are caused by an underlying medical condition. The pain and uncomfortable sensations originate in the lower back and travels through the buttock and down the large sciatic nerve in the back of the leg. Rarely does sciatica occur in both legs, but it is typical to have pain in only one side of the buttock or leg. Sciatic pain can be infrequent and irritating to constant and debilitating; it can also be triggered through weight gain, such as during pregnancy. While symptoms can be painful and can last for varying lengths of time, rarely does permanent sciatic nerve damage result. For those with sciatica, Sovereign Rehabilitation offers sciatica treatment to help patients achieve long-term pain relief and increased quality of life.
