Sciatica is characterized as an irritation or inflammation of the sciatic nerve, a nerve that starts in the lower spine and travels into the leg and foot. Not all leg pain is sciatica, but sciatica involves leg pain.
If you are suffering from back pain come to Performance Spine & Sports Medicine for expert, quality sciatica treatment and care.
Often, patients come from other medical practices looking for a solution. We offer fully comprehensive medical care with our advanced regenerative medical treatments and integrated rehabilitation care from our best in class physicians and rehabilitation team of physical therapists, chiropractors and acupuncturist.
Sciatica pain can feel much like a “toothache” type pain, sometimes sharp, stabbing or “electric shocks” going down the leg or foot. At times the leg can cramp or have sensations of “pins and needles” going up and down the leg. The sciatic nerve can be inflamed by a bulging or herniated disc. However, degeneration of the spine can also irritate the nerve. If degeneration is severe enough, the sciatica pain can come from a condition called spinal stenosis.
