Sciatica Treatment in Macquarie Park
Sciatica is a broad term used to describe low back pain and leg pain caused by compression of the large sciatic nerve that originates in the lower back and travels through the back of each leg. Pain caused by sciatica can vary from infrequent and irritating to constant and debilitating. If sciatica is left untreated the symptoms can worsen, and it can make it hard to hard to stand and walk.
Sciatica can affect anyone, especially those who spend a lot of time sitting or bending and lifting, putting strain on the low back. It is important that you have sciatic pain treated effectively so that the pain does not persist or gradually worsen.
Sciatica is more than just leg pain!
Few of the signs and symptoms of sciatica include:
✔ Pain in the lower back that travels into the one or both legs
✔ Pain in one or both legs, buttocks, calves and feet
✔ Weakness in one or both legs or feet
✔ Tingling, numbness or pins and needles sensation in one or both legs
✔ Tightness and stiffness in lower back and leg muscles
✔ If symptoms of sciatica are not relieved at their early stages, they may lead to further complications on a psychological level, including irritability and depression.
