Do I Have Sciatica?

What is Sciatica?

The longest nerve in your body is the sciatic nerve which runs from the lower back through the buttocks and down to each of your legs and feet. Sciatica occurs when the sciatic nerve is irritated or compressed. The pain that radiates throughout your body from sciatica can range from mild to severe throughout your lower body.

What Causes Sciatica?

Sciatic nerve pain or sciatica most commonly occurs from spine issues such as herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, or arthritis. Other conditions that can lead to sciatica are:

  • Bone spurs
  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Spondylolisthesis
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Spondylolisthesis

What Are Common Sciatica Symptoms?

Common symptoms of sciatica are:

  • Sharp, stinging, or throbbing pain sensations
  • Weakness or numbness in the lower part of the body
  • Numbness in the foot, leg, or buttock
  • Discomfort when sitting or lying down
  • Trouble walking
  • Pins and needle feeling in the leg

If you think you are experiencing the symptoms of sciatica, use our pain assessment tool to start your diagnosis.

How Is Sciatica Treated?

Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Sciatica

In mild cases, sciatica can be resolved with non-surgical treatment or at-home remedies. These include:

  • Anti-inflammatory medicine
  • Heat/Cold therapy
  • Stretching
  • Low impact activities like walking
  • Physical therapy
  • Rest

Robotic Surgical Treatments for Sciatica

When non-surgical treatments and home remedies don’t provide relief, surgery may be necessary. Our expert team of surgeons works directly with you to identify the underlying issue of your pain and provide treatment that is specific to your needs. The use of robots for surgery makes it a minimally invasive procedure that reduces recovery time as well provides for a better patient experience and outcomes.

As with any spinal condition, it’s important to seek medical advice and treatment before the condition becomes too serious. Whether non-surgical or surgical treatment, the path to a pain-free life is waiting for you. Find the right treatment for you with our treatment finder assessment.
