Those suffering from sciatica experience radiating pain from the lower back, into the hips, buttocks and down the legs, generally on one side of the body. This is usually caused by the pinching of the sciatic nerve -- a secondary condition resulting from a herniated disk or a bone spur.
Some other symptoms of sciatic nerve inflammation or damage include:
- Numbness, particularly in the legs
- Tingling or weakness in the foot
- Weakness of the leg
- Changes in bowel or bladder function; lack of control
- Sudden, severe pain or burning sensations
Some patients will experience sciatica pain because of severe sports injury or traffic accident, obesity, sedentary work or lifestyles, diabetes, or the natural deterioration of the spine through the aging process.
Whatever the cause, Magnolia Natural Health can help you manage your sciatica pain through structural correction or changes to nutritional intake.
