What is Sciatica?

Sciatica is a type of back pain resulting from pressure on the sciatic nerve. The longest nerve in the human body is the sciatic nerve. It runs from your lower back and branches off to innervate both of your hips, buttocks, legs and feet. Pressure on this nerve can affect your lower back, and the pain can radiate through the length of the nerve. It can also cause tingling, numbness or weakness in your leg or foot. (more…)

Sciatica Treatment in Atlanta GASciatica 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.
