Sciatica, everyone has probably heard of it but do you know what it really is? Most might say that it’s a pain you get in your leg but do you know where it comes from? What confuses a lot of people and even doctors is that sciatica is not a diagnosis… I repeat that sciatica is NOT a diagnosis!
In fact, there are at least 10 reasons as to why you can get sciatica.
If you go to your doctor and they give you that diagnosis and hand you a pill, perhaps you should think again.
Sciatica by definition is pain experienced in the distribution of the sciatic nerve, the sciatic nerve consists of 5 nerves in your lower lumber (back) area and exiting your sacrum (pelvic area), these nerves join as one and this is called the sciatic nerve. This runs down the back of your leg to your ankle, this can also affect the sole of your foot. The sciatic nerve feels sensations and allows you to move the muscles in your leg. Sciatica is a symptom rather than the cause.
Here is a list of the 10 causes of sciatica pain:
You can have one of these conditions occurring, or you can have 3-4 occurring at one time. It is important to receive the correct diagnosis and primary cause for your condition in order to achieve a healthy recovery. Sciatica occurs when the function of the nerve is affected; weakness, numbness or pins and needles can be present in the legs with or without lower back pain. Certain treatments are effective with sciatica, such as chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage. What is also important is giving your body the nutrients it needs for tight muscles, inflammation and arthritic conditions, these include:
Lifestyle changes such as stretching and exercises are necessary to help the condition and to prevent reoccurrence. It's important to have the problem professionally diagnosed, take supplements to support the condition and make changes in your lifestyle.
