Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg.
Sciatica can be caused by various factors, including a herniated disk, bone spurs on the spine, spinal stenosis, or even from trauma or injury to the sciatic nerve.
Common symptoms include pain in the lower back, buttocks, or legs, numbness, tingling, or weakness in the affected leg or foot.
Diagnosis often involves a physical examination, a review of medical history, and possibly imaging tests such as X-rays, MRIs, or CT scans to identify the source of the pain accurately.
Treatment may include self-care measures such as rest and over-the-counter pain relievers, physical therapy, steroid injections, or in severe cases, surgery to alleviate pressure on the sciatic nerve.
In many cases, mild sciatica often improves with time and self-care measures. However, for more severe cases, medical intervention may be necessary for relief.
Yes, specific exercises and stretches can help relieve sciatica pain by strengthening the back and core muscles and improving flexibility. However, it's crucial to consult a healthcare professional before starting any exercise regimen.
