Are You Suffering From Sciatica?
From there, individual nerves emerge from your spine and send impulses to your lower body to supply sensation and movement.
This is what enables you to move and perceive touch, heat, cold, and pain, among other senses. Any obstruction to this transmission has the potential to hurt and cause issues.
This indicates that one or more of the nerves that emerge from your lower back have gotten inflamed or maybe pinched. This frequently causes the patient to experience pain, numbness, or tingling in the particular portion of their leg that the inflamed nerve supplies.
The term "Sciatica" is often used to describe this condition because most (but not all) "lumbar radiculopathies" cases impact or involve the sciatic nerve which supplies the back & outside of your thigh and calf. Symptoms of lumbar radiculopathy can be varied but most suffer from some form of a dull ache to a constant severe sharp shooting pain. In some cases, you may find that your symptoms are aggravated by certain positions or movements.
It is crucial that you adhere to your treatment plan precisely and let us know right away if your leg discomfort, numbness, or weakness worsens at any point.
