Top 5 Most Common Symptoms of Sciatica

Nerves can be very sensitive, responding in several ways when agitated. Nerves in the lower back can lead to issues that affect an entire leg. Our chiropractor at Lynch Chiropractic Center, serving the Lexington, KY area, can help you determine if sciatica is your issue.

Back Pain

The sciatic nerve is in the region of the lowest vertebrae. A common cause of sciatic pain is when the nerve gets compressed between these vertebrae. This direct injury leads to pain prevalent in this area.

Leg Pain

The sciatic nerve begins at the base of the spine and runs down the back of the leg. When the nerve is agitated, it can cause pain to affect the entire nerve. Even though the injury could be in the lower back, the pain can travel the nerve down the back of the leg to the foot.

Shooting Pain 

Depending based on the agitation, it may not be the entire nerve that reacts. Different activities (or inactivity) can make the pain more prominent in the leg at one time of day, then the lower back later. Changes in weather or posture can also impact where the pain manifests.

Numbness and Tingling

Pain is not the only sensation a damaged sciatic nerve can cause. Sometimes, the injury of the nerve can lead to it creating a constant tingling feeling rather than pain. Another alternative reaction can be a deadening of the nerve where the feeling is replaced with numbness.

Impaired Mobility

An injury to a major nerve can do more than cause pain or numbness. Another result is a lessening of the function of the nerve. This can cause the lower back or leg to feel stiff when trying to move.
