Causes of Sciatic pain

Sciatica is a common symptom of several different medical conditions. However, most cases are caused by a herniated disc. A herniated disc occurs when the disc is temporarily pushed out of place, resulting in pressure on the sciatic nerve. Additional causes of sciatica may include:

  • Lumbar spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Infection or injury of the spine
  • Tumors within the spine

The first step is to determine if the pain you are having is true sciatica and what is causing it. We’ll incorporate a variety of treatment modalities to address your pain management needs.

Understanding the Sciatic Nerve

The sciatic nerve is the longest single nerve in the body. It begins in the lower back and has nerve roots and endings that come together through the lower spine. Sciatica pain occurs when the nerve is irritated or compressed at its point of origin.
