Sciatica: Back, Hip, and Leg Pain

Sciatica, the common term for pain caused by pressure on the sciatic nerve, is actually a symptom of a protruding disc in the spine (lumbar radiculopathy). The sciatic nerve runs from the lower back to the foot, and when a disc shifts out of normal position and puts pressure on the nerve root, pain may occur at any point along the nerve.  

People age 30 to 50 are more likely to develop sciatica, because that’s when components of the spine begin to deteriorate. Degenerative disc disease, arthritis, and other conditions may lead to disc abnormalities that cause sciatic nerve pain. Fortunately, non-surgical treatments such as physical therapy, medication, and steroid injections are often highly effective at relieving sciatic nerve pain.

Center for Pain Management’s team of pain management specialists has helped many patients overcome the pain of sciatica. We focus on correcting the underlying causes of sciatic nerve pain and helping our patients regain strength and flexibility. If you’ve been diagnosed with lumbar radiculopathy or have been unable to find relief for sciatica pain, please call us to schedule a consultation: (317) 706-7246.

Lumbar Radiculopathy Symptoms

Pressure on the sciatic nerve may cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Upper leg pain
  • Buttock pain on one side only
  • A tingling sensation along the back of the leg, or in the foot
  • Shooting pain that travels down the leg
  • Leg numbness or weakness

Sciatic nerve pain may resolve on its own, but without treatment of the underlying cause, it may recur.

Understanding Sciatic Nerve Pain

While a protruding disc is the direct cause of nerve pain, we thoroughly evaluate sciatica patients so we can detect all factors that may be making the pain worse. For example, muscle weakness, prolonged sitting, and poor posture can increase the risk of and severity of nerve pain.
