Sciatica – Sciatic Nerve Dysfunction – Neuropathy

What is sciatica?

Sciatica or sciatica neuritis is due to inflammation and or irritation to the branches of nerves in the lumbar that form the sciatic nerve.  Additionally, a problem can also occur directly to the sciatic nerve. Pain often radiates along the sciatic nerve, which runs down one or both legs from the lower back.

Patients at LeGault Chiropractic in Pittsburgh that suffer from sciatica and leg pain may experience aches and pains in their buttocks and legs. The same pain and discomfort can become sharp or knife-like.  The intensity and sensation changes happen due to nerve irritation and inflammation. The pain associated with sciatica is very severe; often making it difficult to walk.
