Top 5 Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Have you ever woken up to find your back aching and wondered if it's just a simple strain or something more serious? Identifying the signs can be crucial. Sciatica is a prevalent condition that occurs when pressure is applied to your sciatic nerve due to factors like a herniated disk or bone spur, leading to inflammation. This nerve runs down both legs, causing pain and numbness in one or both legs.

The good news is that a trusted chiropractor can provide relief from sciatic pain with proper diagnosis. If you live in or around the Colonia area, Colonia Spine & Wellness Center offers effective sciatica treatments to alleviate your pain and prevent its recurrence.

Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Around 40% of Americans experience sciatica pain at some point in their lives. So, what are the most common symptoms of sciatic pain?

1. Tingling or Burning Sensations in the Legs: In cases of sciatic nerve inflammation, you may feel a burning or tingling sensation shooting down one leg (although, in rare instances, this sensation can occur in both legs).

2. Weakness or Numbness in the Legs: While numbness might seem preferable to a burning sensation, both numbness and weakness are symptoms of an irritated sciatic nerve.

3. Increased Pain When Sitting: You may notice that your back and buttocks pain worsens when you're sitting down, as sitting exerts additional pressure on the already irritated and inflamed sciatic nerve.

4. Persistent Pain in the Lower Extremities: Sciatica can cause continuous or nearly constant pain in various areas, including the back, buttocks, and hips.

5. Lower Back Pain: Sciatica can lead to both sharp and dull pain in your lower back.

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, our chiropractor can employ proven techniques to help alleviate sciatica. Our chiropractic care options include spinal adjustments, decompression, massage therapy, exercises, and even cupping therapy to reduce inflammation and enhance muscle mobility.
