What is Sciatic Pain?
Lumbar radiculopathy (Sciatica) is a medical condition that is generally triggered by the irritation of a spinal nerve, commonly the sciatic nerve.
Since the sciatic nerve is located in the lower back and travels down to the posterior part of each leg, sciatica is the common underlying problem in cases of lower back pain. The symptoms of sciatica manifest only on one side of the body mostly, and include continuous lower back pain, seeping into the buttock and leg. It ensues tingling, numbness, weakness, and loss of sensation in more severe cases.
Sciatic Nerve Pain Treatment
The effects of irritation or compression of the sciatic nerve can vary in intensity from mild irritation to immobilizing pain, depending on the degree of trauma it’s causing to your spine and sciatic nerve as well as the duration of how long the condition has been present.
Fortunately, lumbar radiculopathy can now be diagnosed and reversed through non-surgical treatments in the majority of cases. Dr. Longo has successfully treated hundreds of sciatic patients in Mehlville.
