What are the symptoms of sciatica?

Sciatic nerve pain can radiate from your lower spine to your buttock/hip and down the back of your leg.

Sciatic nerve pain and irritation can show up as:

  • Low Back Pain
  • Numbness
  • Tingling
  • Muscle Weakness
  • Burning

These sensations can be localized to one spot or can be down your entire leg.

Understanding Sciatic Nerve Pain

The sciatic nerve is a nerve that runs from your lower back, down your buttock and hip, the back of your leg, and down to your calves and toes. Each vertebra in the spine has a nerve associated with it. In your lower back, these nerves exit and combine to form the sciatic nerve together.

The sciatic nerve can get irritated or pinched before it exits the spine, or the entire sciatic nerve can get entrapped after it leaves your spine. Therefore, sciatic nerve pain can provide many different signs and symptoms.

At Skare Spine & Performance, we understand how sciatica pain can disrupt your life, limiting your mobility and overall well-being. We are committed to providing effective sciatica pain relief through a combination of techniques and personalized treatment plans.

We focus on understanding the root cause of your sciatica, whether it's a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, piriformis syndrome, or trigger points to offer targeted solutions that alleviate pain and restore your quality of life. Our approach is not just about temporary relief; it's about helping you find a long-term solution.

Who can get sciatic nerve pain?

When you are between 20-65, this is often due to disc irritation, bulge, or herniation. Many people will reach down to tie their shoe or pick up something light and feel an instant pain in their back or down their leg. This single incident didn't cause your injury, but it was more than likely the result of injury over time. This form of sciatica is often irritated in the morning, sitting for long periods, and after bending movements. 

If you are over 65, this is often the result of spinal stenosis. As our spine gets arthritis, it can compress and irritate the sciatic nerve causing pain into the hips or down the leg. This form of sciatica is often aggrevated with walking or standing for long periods. 

At Skare Spine & Performance, we perform a thorough assessment to determine the cause of your symptoms and put together a plan to help you find relief. We want to provide you with long-term relief and solutions, not a temporary fix.
