Sciatica

Specialty of Pain medicine

Sciatica pain is produced by inflammation or injury of the sciatic nerve, sometimes caused by compression in muscle contractures, by disk displacement in the spine or by a narrowing of the nerve canal. It often causes radiating pain that extends from the back, down the leg, and even reaching the foot. The muscles around the area usually contract, thus worsening the pain. At other times one of the spinal discs moves backwards, pressing the nerve. In cases like this, exercise to re-train the posture through strengthening of the abdominal muscles is recommended as one of the possible solutions.. Other symptoms of sciatica are cramps and spasms from the back of the hip down to the knee, sudden pain with the sensation of electric shock, or severe pain affecting mobility.
