Sciatica Leg Pain
Sciatica is a condition that results in pain radiating along the sciatic nerve, which runs from the lower back, through the hips and down the legs. Usually only occurring on one side of the body, sciatica can stem from many different conditions and experiences. Sciatica causes include compression of the sciatic nerve by a herniated disc or bone spur, as well as accident and injury. In addition to pain, symptoms of sciatica include:
- Numbness and/or tingling in the extremities
- Muscle weakness
- Sensations of prickling
- Loss of sleep
- Limited mobility
