If you experience pain that radiates from your lower back or buttocks down your legs, you may have a common spine condition known as sciatica. Named after the affected sciatic nerve, sciatica afflicts patients when they sit or stand. In addition to back pain, patients also experience numbness and weakness of one or both legs. It can be caused by a herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, or the sciatic nerve itself if it becomes a pinched nerve. Most sciatica symptoms result from lower back abnormalities between the backbone levels of L4 and S1.
When left untreated, your sciatic condition can worsen over time and eventually prevent the ability to perform simple daily tasks. Centers for Neurosurgery, Spine, and Orthopedics’s team of board-certified neurosurgeons, physiatrists, and pain management doctors, can help patients living in Morristown receive the proper diagnosis and pain relief caused by sciatica.
