Sciatica Pain Driving You Crazy?

Things You May Not Know About Sciatica Pain

Sciatica pain:

  • When you feel a sensation of numbness, tingling or pain down one or both legs or in the buttocks it is often the result of an irritation of the sciatic nerve.

  • The sciatic nerve is made up of the roots of multiple nerves extending from the spinal cord between the vertebrae.  Radiating pain often initiates from this nerve junction.

  • Sciatica pain or  numbness commonly runs down the buttocks and legs to the ankles and feet.  When there is a sensation further down the legs and into the feet that typically represents a greater obstruction of the nerves.

  • Nerve root pain from Sciatica may be caused by a herniated disc.  The disc itself is not painful, but rather the material that is leaking out of the inside of the disc is pinching or irritating a nearby nerve and causing pain to radiate down the leg.

  • Sciatica may be caused by degenerative disc that leads to nerve root or spinal cord pinching of the sciatic nerve, causing pain.

How To Test For Sciatica

Sciatica can often be diagnosed through a physical and neurological exam. Your doctor may also choose to evaluate your condition by using one of the following tests:

X-rays:

An x-ray allows the doctor to see your bones, joints and any possible degenerative lesions in the spine. It does not allow him to evaluate the soft tissue such as muscles and ligaments.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI):

An MRI is a common test used to evaluate the soft tissues in the body, especially the spine’s discs, joints, nerves and bones.  The test is prescribed in a weight bearing mode to better evaluate the interverbal disc spaces.

Cat Scan (CT):

This test used when the doctor suspects problems with your bones or when you are unable to obtain an MRI.

Sciatica is a condition that can worsen if you choose to neglect your pain. Seeking immediate treatment is critical. If you’re experiencing the sensation of pain, tingling, or numbness in the buttocks and/or legs our Miami Back and Neck Pain Center specialists can assist.
