Don’t let sciatica keep you from enjoying life in Barrie – call us instead.
Sciatica is nerve pain caused by compressions of the sciatic nerve. This nerve originates in the lower back and extends down into the leg, passing through the buttocks on the way. Pinched or compressed nerves are generally painful, but the radiating nature of sciatica can make it excruciating.
Here are some signs that your pain is being caused by sciatica:
- Pain in your lower back can be caused by sciatica (or many other causes)
- Your pain is worse when sitting
- You have pain in one hip
- The pain sensation includes burning or tingling
- You have constant pain in one side of your buttocks
- You experience shooting pain when you try to stand up
Sciatica pain is usually present on one side or the other of your body. This painful condition is often caused by sporting or recreational activities, as well as heavy labour. You may be more susceptible to this condition if you have a job that requires a repetitive motion or if you maintain one position for too long without stretching.
