Did you know that the sciatic nerves are the longest nerves in the body? The sciatic nerve consists of five sets of paired nerves that extend from your lower back, splits and continues lower through your hips all the way down to your feet. When a person experiences sciatica it is often referring to a compression or irritation of one or more of these root nerves in the lower back. Pain from sciatica can present itself as a dull discomfort, numbness or tingling sensation and worsen to the extent of sharp or shooting pains that radiate down one or both legs depending on where the issue is on the nerves themselves. Unfortunately, treating sciatica is not a one size fits all problem, that’s why it’s important to consult a spinal specialist.
