Sciatica and Sciatic Nerve Pain

What is Sciatica?

Have you ever experienced a shooting pain down the back of one of your legs? Often, this is a symptom of sciatica or sciatic nerve pain. 

The sciatic nerves are nerves that run from your lower back down the backs of your thighs and upper legs. Normally, the sciatic nerves help transmit sensory information from your legs. The nerves provide a connection between your brain and muscles in your legs for mobility. When either of the nerves becomes compressed, you may experience pain anywhere between your lower back and either calf. Typically, sciatica pain is present on the back of only one side of your body. The pain can range from mild to excruciating. 

Causes of Sciatica

Sciatica can be caused violent injuries suck as car accidents. We specialize in the treatment of injuries caused by automobile accidents and can assist you through the recovery process. Typically, mild sciatica resolves within a couple weeks. If you sit at a desk for long periods of time, consider taking occasional breaks to stretch. Core strengthening can reduce the frequency and severity of sciatic nerve pain caused by a sedentary lifestyle.
