Top 5 Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Top 5 Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

We at Papa Chiropractic & Physical Therapy know the truth about sciatica.  It is considered to be more of a symptom than an actual condition. It is a symptom of a perhaps more serious condition. The pain is caused by pressure being put on the sciatic nerve causing irritation. One thing agreed on through the pain can be a mild irritation to downright crippling. This all depends on the location of the pinched, compressed nerve. Here are some spine conditions that can lead to sciatic nerve pain.

  •  Disc herniation (Lumbar) – Where the disc in the lower back slipped out-of-place putting compression on a nerve root.

  •  Degenerative disc disease (Lumbar) – The deterioration of the discs in the lower back causing motion irritating the nerve root.

  • Spinal stenosis (Lumbar) – Where the spinal canal starts to narrow in the lower back causing pinching of the nerves.

  • Isthmic spondylolisthesis – When the vertebrae slip out over another vertebra compressing on a nerve root.
